Amazon’s Dash buttons have been making the news again with our friends over at Hackaday where they noticed via Matthew Petrof’s teardown that Amazon recently switch from the STM32F205 based WICED modules to the Atmel WINC1500 module. You might recognize those from the Arduino MKR1000, the Arduino WiFi Shield 101, or our own Adafruit Feather WINC1500 or WINC1500 breakout. TLS 1.2 support was added to the WINC1500 as of firmware 19.4.4, which is required for AWS support, but keep in mind that there were also protocol changes to accompany the new HW, so you might want to hold onto your old modules for the time being if you’re doing any hacking around with them. Let us know if you see anyone doing anything interesting with the in the wild!
