@pinaz: Where are you getting the "$1.30"?  The cheapest "GB2" part I can find with the features indicated in the article is the PIC24FJ64GB202 with volume pricing starting at $2.69.

I just heard back from the folks at Microchip. They say: "The $2.69 that the user comment includes is for a PIC24FJ64GB202 at 5k units, which is lower volume.  The press release mentions $1.30 as volume pricing, which is based on the PIC24FJ64GB202 at 100k+ unit per year."

They also told me that folks can contact their local Microchip sales office if they need more aggressive pricing quoted for higher volume opportunities than are posted on the Microchip website.

That was in the materials they sent me -- I will "tweak" them soundly and ask for clarification.

I've got a couple of boards built around the CC3000 WiFi module. The CC3200 looks pretty compelling. I'd like to take a look at the PIC24FJ128GB204 too. I haven't done anything with encryption and I'd like to see how imuch overhead a solution like this puts into the programming and use.

If I ever free up some time, I might get one of the CC3200 launch pads and on of the PIC parts.

While technical specs looks very capable, the price above $1 in volume looks high. May be it will go under 1USD as the implementation phase approaches.

WoW, another IoT enabler with hardware crypto engine. Indeed security is must for home automation and also for customer's proprietary code protection.

Loos like TI has gone one step ahead by integrating RF also in same chip. Last week TI has launched MCU+Wifi in single chip and they also have Hardware Crypto engine.

http://www.ti.com/product/cc3200

Not sure which is right approach for IoT market, having RF integrated in a single chip/package or having separate MCU and RF. If I see mobile phone chipsets (ofcourse can't compare apple to apple with ioT Chips), OEMs prefered single chip solution (Baseband and Application processoer in single chip/package) ove discrete ones.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
