Silicon Labs teams with Azure for end-to-end IoT

By Nick Flaherty

Continuing the trend of linking hardware to cloud services, Silicon Labs has joined Microsoft's Azure Certified for Internet of Things (IoT) programme for hardware and software that has been pre-tested and verified to work with the cloud services.

Competitor Microchip has had a long term relationship with Amazon's AWS service for the same capability, and Electric Imp recently moved its ImpCloud to Azure (see below).

Silicon Labs’ software platform, combined with devices that are certified for Microsoft Azure, speeds time to revenue and delivers cost-efficient, pre-certified products. Customers working with Silicon Labs can directly and securely share data from their devices to Azure cloud services.

“Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT helps customers build IoT solutions quickly with Silicon Labs’ pre-certified, pre-tested hardware and software,” said Sanjay Kalyanasundaram, Head of IoT Cloud Services at Silicon Labs. “Customers can focus on the product experience and get their products to market faster while we deliver everything required to securely connect, manage and transfer sensor data to Azure in a cohesive manner with minimal complexity.”

“Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT extends our promise to bring IoT to business scale, starting with interoperable solutions from leading technology companies around the world,” said Jerry Lee, Director of Marketing for Cloud and Enterprise, Microsoft Corp. “With trusted offerings and verified partners, Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT accelerates the deployment of IoT even further.”

Choosing and connecting the right set of devices, assets or sensors to the cloud can be time-consuming, so certified devices and platforms that are tested for readiness, compatibility and usability with the Microsoft Azure IoT Suite can speed up development time.
