Introduction to Cypress IoT Solutions Workshop

Last Updated:

June 30, 2020

This hands-on, half day training workshop is designed to address the challenges in developing IoT products and equip engineers with key technical skills to develop cloud-connected products, using:

  • BCM943364W WiFi SiP Module
  • Cloud Services

Challenges that typically need to be solved when developing IoT Products:

  • Connectivity challenges (wireless protocols & standards)
  • Security & privacy (authentication & encryption)
  • Cloud storage, analysis, computing/actions
  • Device management, field updates, system scalability
  • Mobile platform integration (smartphones & tablets)

Workshop Objectives:

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to :

  • Navigate the WICED development environment
  • Develop a custom application in 5 minutes
  • Connect, upload and review data from Cloud serve
