Arduino WiFi Shield 101 is the new IoT enabler shield based on the ATWINC1500 module, developed with ATMEL, that connects your Arduino to the internet wirelessly!
Connecting it to a WiFi network is simple, no further configuration in addition to the SSID and the password are required. The WiFi Shield 101 comes with an easy-to-use library that allow to connect you Arduino board to internet with few instructions. The WiFi Shield 101 also features a complete asymmetric (public/private) hardware key cryptographic signature solution that is an ultra secure method to provide key agreement for encryption/decryption, specifically designed for the IoT market.
As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – are freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it’s made and use its design as the starting point for your own projects.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
