Webinar (and Contest) for the MAX32620FTHR | #IoT #IoTuesday @Hacksterio @maximintegrated

Hackster.io & Maxim Integrated recently held a webinar for their Feather-compatible MAX32620FTHR board – they’re currently conducting a contest which currently has over 150 submissions – I look forward to seeing the outcome of the contest and which project ideas progress. Lots of intel in the video below:

The intelligence in our things might not even be obvious, but it’s there. The best IoT applications let us monitor things we’ve never dreamed of monitoring, and stay out of our way by managing themselves after you’ve set them up. In this contest, we’re challenging you to come up with creative ways to infuse intelligence into a new application using the MAX32620FTHR rapid development platform.

With the MAX32620FTHR board, you can quickly implement portable, function-rich, battery-optimized solutions based on the MAX32620 Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with floating-point unit, part of Maxim’s new family of DARWIN MCUs. Delivering efficient power conversion and battery management in a small form factor, the board includes:

  • The MAX77650 ultra-low-power PMIC featuring single-input, multiple-output (SIMO) technology and highly integrated battery charging
  • The MAX17055 fuel gauge with ModelGauge™ m5 EZ algorithm, which provides high accuracy without battery characterization

AIO_Logo_150x150Here at Adafruit, we sell all of these amazing components, but we couldn’t find a good way to interact with them over the internet. There are certainly a lot of great services out there for datalogging, or communicating with your microcontroller over the web, but these services are either too complicated to get started, or they aren’t particularly fun to use. So, we decided to experiment with our own system, and that is how Adafruit IO got started.

To start, please visit https://io.adafruit.com, and take a look around.

Want to get started quickly? Get up and running with the Welcome to Adafruit IO Guide on the Adafruit Learning System.

Experiencing issues or problems? Join us in the forum or on Discord in the adafruit-io channel with questions, comments, or suggestions.

We also have a blog/changelog specifically for Adafruit IO to keep you updated with the latest changes to Adafruit IO.

To make it easy for people to get started using Arduino or ESP8266 we have a starter pack with just about everything you may want to connect to the internet, with known-working WiFi modules!
