Arduino-Compatible Microsoft Azure Certified IoT Development Kit with Visual Studio Code Support

Posted by Industry News on

Plugable MXChip AZ3166 IoT DevKit Compatible with Microsoft Visual Studio and Azure

This Microsoft Azure Certified IoT DevKit (IOT-AZ3166) is an all-in-one kit optimized for prototyping and developing Internet of Things (IoT) applications leveraging Microsoft Azure services.

It supplies an Arduino-compatible board with multiple peripherals such as an OLED display, sensors, hardware debugging chip (ST-Link), and security chip. The project collection offers creative examples for learning and reference, plus extensive documentation. In addition, it supports Visual Studio Code with the Arduino Extension to build full-fledged IoT applications that integrate numerous services like Azure IoT Hub, Logic App, and Cognitive Services. The kit's hardware and software integration make developing new applications more effortless.

  • CLOUD CONNECTED - Build a cloud-powered IoT app using Microsoft Azure services in minutes.
  • FAST PROTOTYPING - Develop fast and seamlessly utilizing Visual Studio with the Arduino Extension. Microsoft provides developer support.
  • POWERFUL PROCESSING - SoC module combines the power of the ST Microelectronics STM32F412 at its core and MXChip EMW3166 for WiFi.
  • BUILT-IN EVERYTHING - On-board peripherals include an OLED screen, headphone output, stereo microphone, and abundant sensors like humidity, temperature, pressure, and motion (accelerometer and gyroscope), and magnetometer.
  • CONNECT EASILY - 25 external GPIO pins on the edge connector allow you to connect many external sensors and actuators.
