All-in-one secure MCU module provides controller functionality and verifiable identity

The Microchip WFI32E01PC combines a MIPS32 core-based microcontroller with a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi® radio and a hardware secure element to enable safe, authenticated connection to IoT cloud services such as Microsoft Azure or AWS.

The WFI32E01PC from Microchip is a highly integrated module which provides industrial-grade microcontroller functionality, robust Wi-Fi connectivity, and hardware security and authentication. 

Ideal for industrial IoT applications, the WFI32E01PC contains the PIC32MZW1 Wi-Fi system-on-chip (SoC), which combines a 200 MHz MIPS32® M-Class MCU with a Wi-Fi radio and a rich set of peripheral functions, alongside WFI32E01PC a PCB antenna and a Microchip Trust&GO secure element. The secure element is shipped with provisioning for popular cloud platforms including AWS.

The PIC32MZW1 SoC’s 2.4 GHz radio supports Wi-Fi connectivity in IEEE 802.11b/g/n modes. The SoC also features 1 Mbyte of embedded Flash and 256 kbytes of SRAM, giving it the capability to host complex IoT software for wireless networking, a TCP/IP stack, real-time operating system, cloud connectivity, and the application. Application development is supported by the provision of a broad range of peripherals, such as Ethernet, USB, CAN, an ADC, and touch-sensing buttons.  

Software development for the WFI32E01 module is supported in Microchip development tools including the MPLAB® X integrated development environment and the MPLAB Harmony v3 software development framework. Microchip also follows a system solution approach which provides ready-to-use software drivers and hardware reference designs, reducing OEMs’ project risk and time-to-market.

These reference designs include a project example implementing the Matter wireless protocol for a home automation application.
