Espressif Companions with AWS for the ESP ZeroCode ExL, Combining Matter 1.2 and AWS IoT ExpressLink

Espressif has introduced a collaboration with Amazon Internet Companies (AWS) to launch a brand new module firmware for its ESP ZeroCode platform, the ESP ZeroCode ExL, which goals to make it simpler to work with AWS IoT ExpressLink to develop Matter-compatible cloud-connected Web of Issues (IoT) gadgets.

“This module is predicated on Espressif’s ESP32-C6 system-on-chip (SoC) offering Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5 (LE), and [IEEE] 802.15.4 connectivity,” Espressif’s Amey Inamdar says of the brand new {hardware}. “It incorporates built-in Matter and cloud connectivity software program offering a easy AT commands-based serial interface to the host. With such a simplified integration, you may construct Matter-compliant, safe IoT gadgets that hook up with AWS IoT Core and different AWS companies.”

Espressif launched the ESP ZeroCode platform again in August, promising precisely what the title implies: the flexibility to make use of Espressif {hardware} and software program to develop Matter-compatible gadgets, with out ever writing a single line of code. The browser-based no-code growth platform targets particular modules powered by ESP32 systems-on-chips (SoCs), which may be configured then related as a pre-certified resolution to a bunch microcontroller, and it is on this ecosystem which the brand new ESP ZeroCode ExL firmware launches.

“When gadget makers wish to construct cloud-connected gadgets, they’ve to put in writing and keep a big quantity of software program. It additionally wants a deep understanding of connectivity, safety, OTA upgrades, and gadget administration,” Inamdar claims. “The addition of the Matter protocol provides to this making the event, upkeep, and certification much more complicated. The ESP ZeroCode ExL module strikes this essential but undifferentiated workload onto a separate module, permitting gadget makers to simply construct the {hardware} interfacing and enterprise logic onto the host MCU [Microcontroller Unit].”

The ESP ZeroCode ExL firmware brings full help for each the Matter 1.2 and the AWS IoT ExpressLink 1.2 specs, together with connectivity with AWS IoT Core companies like MQTT messaging and Over-The-Air (OTA) updating. The module features a {hardware} root-of-trust (ROT), flash encryption, and is out there to check now on any ESP32-C6-based growth board — although deployment in a transport product is anticipated to happen utilizing the produced-on-demand ESP ZeroCode modules themselves.

“ESP ZeroCode Console helps a fridge, laundry washer, air conditioner, thermostat, and dimmer gadget sorts with ESP ZeroCode ExL module [firmware],” Inamdar says of the preliminary launch. “We will probably be quickly increasing on these gadget sorts.”

These trying to check out the brand new firmware can accomplish that with an Espressif ESP32-C6 growth board on the ESP ZeroCode console now.
