Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and MediaTek announce a collaboration for the first Azure Sphere chip, the MT3620.  

The specialized chipset has a Wi-Fi connected controller around a processor that runs Microsoft’s IoT operating system and say the product can create “highly-secured, connected MCU powered devices at a price that makes enterprise-class security affordable.”

MediaTek is sampling chips with select customers, and the chips will become broadly available in Q3.
