Dear Receiver,

There is an IoT device and it will be designed to connect to AWS (Amazon Web Service). 

Under this condition, do I need to select a MCU (PSoC_6, CYS0644xx) with Amazon FreeRTOS support ?!

I feel a little confused about...

If I select a MCU (PSoC_6, CYB0644xx) with only FreeRTOS support, dose this mean this IOT device can't connect to AWS ?!

Thank you so much.

Hi,

If you're asking with respect to MODUS IDE, then MODUS supports FreeRTOS and also Amazon FreeRTOS based examples. In general, FreeRTOS APIs are used for synchronizations between different tasks and threads, etc. Amazon FreeRTOS is basically additional amazon based libraries for IOT connectivity above FreeRTOS kernel APIs.

So, basically if you've right cloud libraries/APIs for connectivity, you can go ahead and use FreeRTOS. If you need more clarifications, you can go ahead and ask the same query in AWS forums/community.

Thanks

Aditi
