  1. MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" (IOT) connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. With an Arduino-compatible wireless soc, e.g. Realtek Ameba1 (RTL8195/RTL8710) dev. Board, we can create a MQTT client that sends our sensor data to the cloud or any other MQTT clients. The source code is available on github at, https://github.com/ambiot/amb1_arduino/blob/master/Arduino_package/hardware/libraries/MQTTClient/examples/mqtt_basic/mqtt_basic.ino The things that need to take note of, · The "mqttServer" refers to the MQTT-Broker, we use the MQTT sandbox "test.mosquitto.org", it is provided by IBM eclipse for developers to test MQTT. · "clientId" is an identifier for MQTT-Broker to identify the connected device. · "publishTopic" is the topic of the published message, we use "outTopic" in the example. The devices subscribe to "outTopic" will receive the message. · "publishPayload" is the content to be published. · "subscribeTopic" is to tell MQTT-broker which topic we want to subscribe to. Here we can use a chrome plugin "MQTTLens" to be a second MQTT client. You can find it in Chrome Web Store at, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mq-tt-lens-the-best/cgmogjdjpnemdlijokkdomfapcodiohh?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon After setting up a “connection” and key in the same topics we used on Ameba, we should be able to see a “Hello World” message printed on the MQTT message console.
  2. Realtek Ameba-1 development board (RTL8195AM/RTL8710AF) is an IoT-Ready MCU that is based on ARM Cortex-M3. It is specially deisgned to be pin-compatible with Arduino UNO board and can run most of the Arduino base example without an issue. What's more, it comes with many useful features that make it a lot easier for quick IoT project prototying, features include but not limited to, WiFi Low-Power UVC camera NFC I2S for audio USB host Mbed-enabled ... All examples and source code can be found on AmebaIoT.com. A quick demo of what this soc is capable of can be found here Demo Video
