Cypress ads iCloud support to its IoT development platform

Cypress Semiconductor Corp., which specializes in wireless connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced an updated version of its turnkey development platform for the IoT that simplifies the integration of wireless connectivity into smart home applications. 

The Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) Studio platform now adds iCloud remote access support for Wi-Fi-based accessories that support Apple HomeKit. Developers can leverage iCloud support in the WICED software development kit (SDK) and Cypress’ CYW43907 Wi-Fi MCU to create hub-independent platforms that connect directly to Siri voice control and the Apple Home app remotely.

Using Cypress’ WICED development platform and ultra-low power CYW20719 Bluetooth/BLE MCU, developers can integrate HomeKit support into products such as smart lighting devices, leverage Siri voice control and connect to the Apple Home app.
