MediaTek officially reveals strong interest from IoT device makers for its MT3620 offering, a microcontroller unit (MCU) chip designed in close cooperation with Microsoft for direct integration of Microsoft Azure Sphere security solution. The MCU enables manufacturers to develop secure IoT devices connected to Microsoft Azure Cloud services. As the industry’s first MCU with Microsoft Azure Sphere directly integrated into its hardware, the Azure Sphere solution has been successfully adopted by major brands and global companies including Starbucks, Leoni, e.on and Gojo.
The MT3620 is a fully-integrated, high-performance MCU that provides the highest level of security for modern, robust Internet-connected edge devices. Demand for the MT3620 is due to its extensive input/output (I/O) peripheral subsystem that offers device makers flexibility and freedom in device design, so it can be utilized in a wide range of IoT applications including smart home, commercial and industry. The MT3620 is now commercially available in the form of chipsets, modules and development kits.
The MT3620 is the only MCU available on the market today that incorporates Azure Sphere’s comprehensive end-to-end security, allowing manufacturers to develop highly secured IoT devices that easily connect to Microsoft Azure Cloud Services. The secured solution provides device authentication and attestation, supports remote over-the-air software updates to maintain security in the face of evolving attacks, and automates error logging and reporting.
