WiFi Shield HUZZAH CC3000 with On-Board Antenna: the best possible shield for your Arduino!
Unlike many of the WiFi modules found on the market, the HUZZAH CC3000 WiFi Shield with On-Board Antenna is fully compatible with Arduino Leonardo, Uno and Mega and meets most of the requirements of users wanting to integrate the Internet of Things into their creation.
The Adafruit WiFi Shield allows you to communicate via SPI (and not UART), so you can decide exactly how fast or slow you want data transmission to be. It uses the WiFi 802.11b/g protocol, authorising a maximum transfer rate of 54Mbps, and offers a signal range worthy of a smartphone! Regarding security and data encryption, there’s everything you need: WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP and AES, it’s all there!
To complete this shield’s beautiful architecture, a microSD socket, a reset button, a 3.3 V regulator and 3 V / 5 V logic level converter have also been included.
Uses for the WiFi Shield HUZZAH CC3000 with On-Board Antenna
It goes without saying that with such an efficient WiFi shield (plus a compatible microcontroller), the possibilities are endless. A connected weather station, a connected pet bowl (you receive an SMS when it’s empty), a connected flower pot (you receive an e-mail when the soil’s too dry), fairy lights that can be controlled via the internet, a WiFi data logger... in fact just about anything you can think of to test your Arduino!
