The Avnet BCM4343W IoT Starter Kit enables designers to easily prototype cloud-connected IoT designs and then rapidly move from development to production with a pre-certified wireless SoC module.
The Starter Kit features an Arduino™ form-factor baseboard and pre-certified Avnet BCM4343W SoC module. This Wi-Fi+BLE+MCU module combines an advanced Cypress's combo 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth® 4.1 SoC, together with 8Mb of SPI Serial Flash and an STM32F411 ARM® Cortex™ M4 Microcontroller with 512KB Flash and 128KB SRAM. The baseboard includes access to the MCU’s various peripherals via Arduino compatible headers as well as a 2x6 format peripheral connector, allowing connection to a range of expansion boards for sensors, motors, digital I/O and analog inputs.
Application development is supported by Cypress's WICED™ Software Development Kit (SDK), which includes connection to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM® Watson™ IoT Platform through an intuitive integrated development environment. The starter kit simplifies cloud connectivity for designers in a variety of IoT market segments, including industrial automation, building automation and smart home appliances.
