Each quarter, the Azure Sphere team works to open new scenarios to customers through new features on-chip and in the cloud. The Azure Sphere 19.09 release continues this theme by unlocking greater flexibility and diversity in networking scenarios and new peripherals.
We are also pleased to announce that we are making it easier and more cost effective for manufacturers in the Azure Sphere hardware ecosystem to build new devices—including guardian module devices. With this release, we are publishing a reference design for a guardian module, and providing guidance about how an FTDI component on a separate board can leverage the cost of a single FTDI device across many devices via a physical connector.
To build applications that take advantage of this new functionality, please download and install the latest Azure Sphere SDK Preview for Visual Studio. For hardware designs and guidance, please consult the Azure Sphere Hardware Designs GitHub repository. All Wi-Fi and Ethernet-connected Azure Sphere devices will automatically receive an updated Azure Sphere operating system that contains support for these new features.
Specific functionality included in the 19.09 release:
Improved Update Control:
Enabling new chip features:
Tooling and libraries:
Expanded connectivity options:
Expanded hardware support:
There has never been a better time to begin developing on Azure Sphere, using the development kit or module that best fits your needs, or those of your customer, with highly customizable offerings available.
