Broadcom adds HomeKit support to its embedded device platform
Broadcom's Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED) platform, and it's accompanying SDK, now helps hardware manufacturers and software developers take advantage of Apple's HomeKit connected home platform. The WICED platform is built as a complete package for building connected devices, and meets the HomeKit standards of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Broadcom's WICED hardware module can be used to connect devices without HomeKit support to appliances built with the platform, like connecting a Bluetooth light to a smart switch compatible with HomeKit. You can then use the light with all of your other HomeKit-compatible hardware and applications.
Developers and hardware manufacturers can get their hands on the Broadcom WICED hardware module and SDK right now.
