Azure IoT Workbench now supports ESP32 devices

In April this year, we released our first public preview of Azure IoT Workbench in Visual Studio Code, an IoT development environment aims to make it easy to code, build, deploy and debug your IoT project for MXChip IoT DevKit. From this one DevKit, we gradually add more popular Azure supported development kits such as teXXmo IoT Button….


New Azure IoT services supported by IoT DevKit

It’s been around 4 months since we release our official hardware and SDK as v1.0 last September right on Ignite 2017. In that event, the MXChip IoT DevKit was used on a couple of Azure IoT break-out and keynote sessions for demonstrations and together with announcement with new services released such as IoT Hub Device…


Handy Tool When You Develop With Azure IoT

IoT Application Development is naturally more complicated than regular application development, in that even the simplest E2E IoT application involves a long chain from device layer, to communication layer, then to the cloud and beyond. This makes the development especially the testing and debugging difficult. Even though there are corresponding tools exist at each layer,…


MXChip IoT DevKit is available for pre-ordering

DevKit is available for pre-ordering During the past two months, we have been keeping sending out preview IoT DevKit for evaluation to a selective group of requestors. And we see increasing demand for the kits from developers around the world, from Canada to Brazil, from Sweden to Sri Lanka. It is amazing and encouraging for…
