The Avnet Azure Sphere MT3620 Starter Kit supports rapid prototyping of highly secure, end-to-end IoT implementations using Microsoft’s Azure Sphere. The small form-factor carrier board includes a production-ready MT3620 Sphere module with Wi-Fi connectivity, along with multiple expansion interfaces for easy integration of sensors, displays, motors, relays, and more.
This Starter Kit highlights Avnet’s certified, production-ready Sphere MT3620 module which is based on the highly integrated MediaTek MT3620AN tri-core Wi-Fi SoC device. Embedded user applications targeting it’s 500 MHz ARM Cortex-A7 application processor are built and debugged using Microsoft’s popular Visual Studio IDE.
The SoC also includes two 200 MHz ARM Cortex-M4F MCU cores to meet real-time I/O requirements, plus a rich variety of on-chip peripherals (GPIO, UART, I2C, SPI, I2S, PWM, ADC) that can be assigned to any of the three processor cores.
The carrier board connects the Sphere module I/Os to two MikroE Click sockets, an I2C Grove connector, a connector supporting the addition of a 128 x 64 OLED graphical display, a 3D accelerometer, 3D Gyro, temperature sensor, and an ambient light sensor. Debugging is accomplished through a USB-to-UART interface, which also provides the necessary 5V power for the board.
User applications for the embedded Sphere controller are developed in C using Microsoft’s Visual Studio IDE and the Azure Sphere SDK. Visual Studio provides a powerful, yet easy-to-use development environment for compiling and debugging application code. The combination of Visual Studio, the versatile carrier card, and the production-ready Sphere module delivers a powerful starting point for IoT developers interested in learning, prototyping, and deploying Azure Sphere based solutions.
