Cypress Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics have announced a new Internet of Things (IoT) development platform.

The new Quicksilver kit features Cypress’ Wireless Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) platform, and incorporates the Cypress CYW43907 802.11n Wi-Fi microcontroller. The kit is slated for release in July 2017, and a second Quicksilver kit with 802.11ac Wi-Fi is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The first Quicksilver kit will provide users with design capabilities to implement the WICED Studio SDK and features Arduino-compatible headers for expansion capability. The kit includes temperature, humidity and three-axis motion sensors.
