If you are looking to earn some serious network and Internet connectivity to your applications and projects you might be interested in a new WiFi board created by Wicked Device called the WildFire.
The WildFire board is an Arduino compatible board designed to provide extended scope when creating applications with larger data requirements and greater I/O needs.
The WildFire WiFi Arduino compatible board is equipped with WildFire’s onboard TI CC3000 Wi-Fi module, ATmega1284p processor and a MicroSD Card slot.
Wicked Device have also designed to board to be used with the TI SmartConfig mobile app that allows users to configure WildFire networking wirelessly, without the need to edit and upload new system code. For more information on the new WildFire WiFi Arduino board jump over to the Wild Fire website for details and to purchase for $89.99.
