IoT Development with TI Devices and AWS Amazon FreeRTOS

Amazon Web Services (AWS), a leading provider of cloud computing services, supports Internet of Things applications with its AWS IoT service, Amazon FreeRTOS and AWS IoT device SDK for embedded C. TI is working with AWS to help solve customers’ problems and enable them to move faster, by providing qualified solutions for Amazon FreeRTOS and SimpleLink™ SDK AWS IoT Plugins based on the AWS IoT device SDK.

TI devices that are currently integrated with AWS IoT include the SimpleLink Wi-Fi® CC3220 wireless microcontroller, the Sub-1 GHz and Bluetooth® low energy CC1350 wireless MCUs, and the Sitara™ AM3358 processor.

The CC32xx wireless MCUs make it easy for IoT developers to quickly create low-power IoT applications. Providing an integrated Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU, as well as on-chip Wi-Fi network processor, Internet and robust security protocols, no Wi-Fi expertise is required to start IoT development. The AM3358 is the processor at the heart of the BeagleBone family, which has become a popular embedded Linux platform for developers. Developers can connect the BeagleBone directly to AWS IoT or they can use the BeagleBone as a gateway to connect CC13xx Sub-1 GHz MCUs, which are ideal for ultra-low-power sensors needing long range connectivity.

The following TI boards offer pre-ported AWS IoT agents that enable connection to AWS IoT. The source code and build instructions for the AWS IoT agent ports are available at the following locations:
