WICED™ Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices

Broadcom's Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED™) platform (pronounced "wik-id") eases development effort and simplifies the implementation of Internet connectivity in an array of consumer devices, especially those without existing support for networking.

Developers use the WICED platform to create secure wireless networking applications on a wide array of platforms encompassing Broadcom wireless connectivity technologies. The WICED platform encompasses:

  • WICED™ Wi-Fi — a development system for Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • WICED SMART™ — a development system for Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy) applications
  • WICED™ Sense — an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand development kit

The WICED™ portfolio of development systems enables Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity for:

  • Home appliances (speakers, washers, dryers, fridges, ranges)
  • Home monitoring and control (garage door openers, thermostats, security cameras, alarms, light switches)
  • Health and fitness (weight scales, fitness equipment, heart rate monitors, blood pressure monitors, fitness wrist bands, pedometers)
  • Automation and logistics (proximity tags, asset tracking)
  • Digital cameras and imaging devices
  • Smart meters and energy management devices
  • "Headless" devices without a means of interactive configuration for connectivity
  • PAN-LAN bridge and cloud applications
  • Consumer (toys, games, pet tracking, shoe sensors)
