NXP Semiconductors has introduced the LPC54018 MCU-based IoT module, a self-contained, high performance microcontroller solution for development of AWS enabled products.
It supports the recently launched Amazon FreeRTOS (an operating system for IoT microcontrollers) on Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing developers with universal connections to AWS.
This solution includes an LPC54018-based module with on-board Wi-Fi, and a base board for rapid development and prototyping. NXP’s IoT module offers unlimited memory extensibility, and has options to include a root of trust built on the embedded SRAM physical unclonable functions (PUF) and on-chip cryptographic accelerators.
And with support for Amazon FreeRTOS on Amazon Web Services (AWS) – the LPC54018 IoT solution offers developers universal connections to AWS.
Amazon FreeRTOS provides tools for users to quickly and easily deploy an MCU-based connected device and develop an IoT application without having to worry about the complexity of scaling across millions of devices. Once connected, IoT device applications can take advantage of the capabilities of the cloud or continue processing data locally with AWS Greengrass.
Together, LPC and Amazon FreeRTOS, with its easy-to-use software libraries, bring multiple layers of network transport security, simplify cloud on-boarding and over-the-air device management, ushering in a new wave of connected devices.
