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!
