NXP Leverages Google's Cloud IoT Core to Enable Smart Devices for Edge Computing


As an early partner for Android Things, NXP Semiconductors N.V. announced support for the public beta of Google Cloud IoT Core, a fully managed service on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to securely connect and manage IoT devices at scale. Cloud IoT Core is now publicly available to all users in beta, including new features and pricing plan.

NXP Semiconductors PICO-iMX 6UL/7D

By bringing together the latest advancements in security, processing, and digital networking, and NXP technologies help meet the complete system challenges of machine learning, driving the development of edge compute intelligence in IoT devices.

With Cloud IoT Core, businesses can easily connect and centrally manage millions of globally dispersed IoT devices. When used as part of the broader Google Cloud IoT solution, it can ingest all IoT data and connect to Google Cloud’s state of the art analytics services including Cloud Pub/Sub, Dataflow, Bigtable, BigQuery, and Machine Learning.

Key technology features from for the new Cloud IoT Core solution:

  • Additional protocol for existing devices: In addition to the standard protocol MQTT, you can now securely connect existing IoT devices and gateways to Cloud IoT Core over HTTPS, and easily ingest data into Google Cloud Platform at scale.
  • Serverless infrastructure: Scale instantly without limits across NXP multimedia and digital networking processors using horizontal scaling on Google’s serverless platform.
  • Bring your own certificate: Users can now bring their own device key signed by their Certificate Authority (CA), and IoT Core will verify the signature of the key provided by the device with the CA certificate during the authentication process.
  • End-to-end security: Enable end-to-end security using certificate-based authentication and TLS; devices running Android Things or ones supporting the Cloud IoT Core security requirements can deliver full stack security.
  • Automatic device deployment: Use REST APIs to automatically manage the registration, deployment and operation of devices at scale.

NXP Android Things Platform

Powered by the i.MX 6UL and i.MX 7D applications processors, the PICO-iMX 6UL/7D boards from TechNexion and the Argon i.MX 6UL board from VVDN Technologies speed development and time to market for IoT products. All three boards have been qualified and tested by Google to run Android Things at optimal performance. For more information, please visit Things and
