REALTEK RTL8195 Arduino Compatible WiFi IoT Development Board

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I would like to introduce the Ameba-1 development board (using the RTL8195AM soc) from Realtek's AmebaIoT ecosystem. It is an IoT-ready MCU powered by a ARM Cortex-M3 core. It is specially designed to be pin-compatible with the Arduino UNO, can be programmed using the Arduino IDE and supports most of the Arduino base examples and expansion boards.

It includes many features useful for IoT projects, such as:

WiFi
Low-Power mode
USB host
USB camera support
NFC
I2S audio output
...

Examples, sample code, user manuals and SDKs can be found at AmebaIoT.com.
There is also a YouTube channel with a step-by-step video guides for some basic examples.

Thanks for reading.

Continuing from my previous introduction of the Realtek RTL8195 development board, I would like to inform everyone of a new service provided along with the board.

AmebaIoT development board users are now able to register for a free cloud-based MQTT broker service at https://www.amebaiot.com/en/. MQTT is a message passing protocol commonly used in connecting internet of things (IoT) devices together, allowing the devices to send and receive data to achieve the desired actions. Follow the guide here to register for your own MQTT broker service to test your applications.

To get started with using MQTT, you can follow the basic example guide here for the RTL8195 development board. This example uses the MQTT protocol to allow for control of an LED over the internet. Source code for the example can be found at AmebaIoT's GitHub repository.
A YouTube video guide for this example is also provided for those who prefer watching more than reading.

Thanks for reading.

Realtek's AmebaIoT ecosystem also has the low-cost Ameba-2 development board using the RTL8710 soc. This board is also a WiFi capable, Arduino compatible IoT board designed for project integration. The RTL8710 soc is tightly integrated on a small form-factor pcb module together with a USB to UART converter and a RGB led. The module can also be plugged into an expansion development board, which breaks out all the pins into Arduino compatible headers. Combining the module with the expansion board allows for the use of arduino shields, speeding up project development and debugging. After the development is completed, the module's small size makes it easy to integrate it into projects that need to fit tightly into enclosures.

The features are as follows:

WiFi
SPI
I2C
JTAG debugging
PWM

Examples, sample code, user manuals, HDKs and SDKs can be found at AmebaIoT.com.

Thanks for reading.
