Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 10:47 CET | News

MediaTek said it's collaborating with Microsoft to deliver the first-ever Azure Sphere chip, the MT3620, that will drive IoT innovation with built-in security and connectivity. Azure Sphere is Microsoft’s new platform for creating highly-secured connected MCU powered devices at a price that makes enterprise-class security affordable for the multitude of cloud-connected devices.

MediaTek and Microsoft worked together to develop a specialised chipset with a Wi-Fi connected controller built around a processor designed to run Azure Sphere’s IoT operating system. It also includes built-in support for Microsoft’s latest unparalleled security protocols. These chipsets will be sold as part of the Azure Sphere platform, enabling customers across a broad set of industries to connect their MCU powered products and devices with confidence that they are protected and secured by Microsoft.

With Azure Sphere, Microsoft is building a new ecosystem, which consists of silicon vendors, original device manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers from a broad range of industries. MediaTek is now sampling chips with lead customers and will have broad product availability by Q3.
