Bring Wi-Fi to Berg! @bergcloud with Adafruit’s CC3000 #IoT @arduino

20140430-151611-1024X768

Wi-Fi preview release @ Berg Blog.

Get an Arduino Mega, and the Texas Instruments CC3000 Wi-Fi shield from Adafruit. Download our client library… and you’re set.

It’s easier than using Wi-Fi on its own. Our client library manages the Wi-Fi connection for you and handles HTTP requests and responses, with automatic data translation between JSON on the web and native data-types on the Arduino. On the web side, you work with your devices using JSON and a RESTful web API. Berg ensures message delivery in both directions, and tracks online/offline status for all your devices.

Our Wi-Fi solution works exclusively with the CC3000 Arduino shield. We chose the CC3000 because it’s an awesome chip: It’s small, readily available, and cheap at volume. You can configure the network with an iPhone or Android app, which means you can distribute your smart device to users — perfect for prototyping. We also like that Texas Instruments are actively developing the CC3000 firmware, and we expect that to result in improved performance and stability.

…the Arduino shield itself is available from Adafruit, quality retailers of electronics and a huge developer community besides.

  1. Ohh.. is that a sticker on the side of the mega’s power row?

    Those could be awesome to have.
