Platform Update v1.3.0

This release includes two new development kits being added for Atmosphere Studio, the Microchip PIC-IoT and the STMicroelectronics NUCLEO-L476RG. The added support for ST hardware also includes support for the X-NUCLEO-IDB05A1 BLE shield, and the X-NUCLEO-IKS01A3 MEMS sensor shield. Additional, we’ve made a series of functional improvements to enhance our overall user experience, and have added several new sections for documentation.

Complete release notes for Platform Update v1.3.0 include:

  • Added support for the PIC-IoT WG development board as an available project type within Atmosphere Studio.
