The Arduino Wifi Shield Is Right Away Available

The Arduino Wifi Shield is at last here!

We've been working for a whilst on this new wifi block for Arduino that is considerably not similar from what you can find already on the market.

Instead of only getting the standard pre-made procedure you motionless to erect a product that would urge on hacking and modifications so you motionless to use an AVR32 processor running an open source chronicle of TCP/IP and the WIFI program stack. The Arduino communicates over SPI with the AVR32 and this in spin controls the WIFI module, an HDG104 from HD Wireless. Following the Arduino convention the full program smoke-stack running on the AVR32 is expelled as open source together with the Arduino library that controls the shield.

Having the full source is to program smoke-stack allows adding more intricate protocols right away on the AVR32 without using the paltry ethics space of the atmega328 on the Arduino. On tip of this, expert C developers can re-program the block to run as a standalone device without the need of an Arduino related to it. Since you design that there will be extraordinary new features combined by the residents you done updating its firmware really easy, only link up a usb line to the shield. We think this opens up to a lot of hacking potential.

Here are a few of its features:

Connection via: 802.11b/g networks

Encryption types: WEP and WPA2 Persoanl

Connection with Arduino on SPI dock

on-board micro SD container

ICSP headers

FTDI connection for sequence debugging of WiFi block

Mini-USB for updating WiFi block firmware

HDG104 Wireless LAN 802.11b/g System in-Package

Atmega 32UC3 32bit microcontroller

open source firmware.

For more sum see the product page and on the wifi-shield on the Arduino Store .

We hope you will suffer developing with the new associate of the Arduino family.
