Microsoft’s certification process places certain demands on end devices which work with Microsoft Azure services. As a result, the MICA went through a series of tests provided by Microsoft in order to evaluate the functionality of the hardware. The results validated by Microsoft mean MICA meets the requirements of the “Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT” programme.
The “Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT” programme is also intended to help speed up IoT projects with Azure by providing a set of available sensors and devices that are tested for usability and compatibility with the Azure IoT Suite.
