Microchip Wi-Fi SDK supports Apple HomeKit
Microchip is reaching out to Apple users with their Wi-Fi Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK supports the Apple HomeKit platform which is known for the ease with which Apple MFi licensees can create fast, cryptography-enabled low-power designs. The new Wi-Fi SDK combines hardware cryptography suites within the CEC1702 system chip and associated protocols. In terms of hardware, the system consists mainly of an ARM Cortex-M4-based micro interfaced to the well-established WINC1510 low-power 802.11 b/g/n certified Wi-Fi module.
