Adafruit has announced the availability of an assembled Adafruit Feather M0 WiFi w/ATWINC1500 development board which is now available to purchase directly from the Adafruit online store priced at $36.95. There are multiple versions available offering loose headers with PCB antenna, UFL antenna or stacking headers with a PCB antenna or even pre-soldered headers with a PCB antenna.
“Connect your Feather to the Internet with this fine new FCC-certified WiFi module from Atmel. This 802.11bgn-capable WiFi module is the best new thing for networking your devices, with built-in low-power management capabilites, Soft-AP, SSL TSL 1.2 support and rock solid performance. We were running our adafruit.io MQTT demo for a full weekend straight with no hiccups (it would have run longer but we had to go to work, so we unplugged it). This module is very fast & easy to use in comparison to other WiFi modules we’ve used in the past.
This module works with 802.11b, g, or n networks & supports WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption. You can connect to your own WiFi networks or create your own with “Soft AP” mode, where it becomes its own access point (we have an example of it creating a webserver that you can then control the Arduino’s pins). You can clock it as fast as 12MHz for speedy, reliable packet streaming. And scanning/connecting to networks is very fast, just a second or two.”
