Thanks for all your support. We've had a busy couple of weeks integrating 3rd Party web services with Creator, following up with partners and clients from Embedded World and improving our platforms. Here's what we've been up to over the past couple of weeks.
Embedded World 2017
The Creator team was at Embedded World 2017, showcasing the latest MIPS powered technology, demonstrating the Creator IoT Framework (key to scaling IoT projects securely), the MIPS based Creator Ci40 IoT kit and real industrial applications such as production monitoring and control enabled by the Creator Ecosystem.
We have been working alongside our partners to solve the needs of industry, including: MikroElektronika, Cascoda, FourDotZero, Zeugma, Quidgest & The Connectivity Foundry.
Integrating Creator with 3rd Party Services
Duncan demonstrates how you can use the components from the Creator Ci40 IoT Kit to control a motorized door integrating 3rd part web services such as If-This-Then-That and Amazon's Alexa.
The Sesame Project is designed to be a controller for a motorised door, such as a garage or hanger door. The controller application runs on a Creator Ci40 board with Relay Click and Opto Click inserted in click interfaces. It acts as Awa L2MWM client and connects to Creator Device Server. The device server is a LWM2M management server designed to be implemented alongside third party cloud services such as IFTT and Amazon's Alexa to integrate M2M capability into an IoT application. The device server exposes two secure interfaces; REST API/HTTPs and LWM2M/CoAP.
The projects is in the process of being published on our docs website. But check out the code on GitHub today

RIOT-OS merged support for PIC32MX and PIC32MZ Support merged!
Good news! Neil Jones has been working hard with the RIOT team to bring support for MIPS and Creator to the RIOT community. The most recent successes have been the merging of support for the PIC32MX and PIC32MZ which will bring support to the 6LoWPAN Clicker and Chipkit Wifire boards respectively. Earlier in February, we got support for MIPS32r2 merged in RIOT.
PIC32MX support merged.
PIC32MZ support merged.
Matthew Redfearn explains using the Dual-Core, Dual-Thread capabilities of the MIPS CPU.
