Getting a head start on IoT security

Developers bringing new endpoint devices to market have always faced the challenge of ensuring that these devices are secure. The solution to this problem is the Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit. This kit lets developers prototype their IoT implementations quickly using Microsoft’s Azure Sphere, an end-to-end solution for creating highly secure, connected microcontroller (MCU) devices.  

Its small form-factor carrier board includes a WiFi-ready MT3620 Sphere module that speeds up the journey from prototype to production. Integrating off-the-shelf sensors, displays, motors, relays and more is also easy using the multiple expansion slots. To top it all, the powerful yet easy-to-use Microsoft’s Visual Studio IDE and the Azure Sphere SDK are used to develop user applications for the embedded Sphere controller in C. With all these components, tools and resources, the Avnet Azure MT3620 Starter Kit offers an easy and efficient way to learn, prototype and deploy various highly secure MCU devices.
