The FCC-certified ATWINC1500 Wi-Fi module allows designers to connect to the Internet. This 802.11bgn-capable Wi-Fi module has built-in low-power management capabilities, Soft-AP, SSL TSL 1.2 support, and highly reliable performance. Through the ATWINC1500, designers can connect to their own Wi-Fi networks or create their own with "Soft AP" mode, so it becomes its own access point. The module provides fast, reliable packet streaming at up to 12MHz. ATWINC1500 also enables scanning/connecting to networks in just a second or two.
To support portable projects, the board includes a connector for Adafruit 3.7V lithium polymer batteries and built-in battery charging.
