NEW PRODUCT – ACKme WiConnect WiFi Module – Mackerel Evaluation Board

2022 03

NEW PRODUCT – ACKme WiConnect WiFi Module – Mackerel Evaluation Board: The same team that built Roving Networks is now at ACKme, where they’re designing the future of WiFi connectivity. Their first release is the ACKme WiConnect, a super-smart WiFi module that has a lot of built-in capability such as SSL, AP mode, auto-connection, etc.The AMW004-E03 ‘Mackerel’ evaluation board provides a quick and easy way to evaluate and develop using WiConnect with the surface mount AMW004 Wallaby module. Using the Wallaby module is a breeze with Mackerel, simply plug the board into a computer using a standard USB cable, connect with a PC terminal application and start typing. Since the module uses TTL serial, this is a good way to evaluate the WiConnect – the board basically has an FTDI USB/serial converter on it.

The WiConnect application running on the Wallaby module provides easy-to-use ASCII commands to read the state of the buttons and turn the LEDs on and off. For a more compelling demo, connect the board to your Wi-Fi access point, signup at gohack.me and control the board from across the room, or from the other side of the planet!

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
