Here’s picture of the two boards running the WiShield WebServer demo. You can see the wireless connection light is on.
Maple is a sweet new Arduino-like physical computing platform. It’s got analog and digital in and out like the 16MHz, 8-bit Arduino, but is based on a faster, 72Mhz, 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 processor from ST Microelectronics. It’s about $50. The WiShield is about $50 too. The ZG2100 is only about $30, so it is probably possible to build a lower-cost combined board.
HTTP is the new device driver! A new age of iPad and iPhone compatible, Arduino-like devices are upon us! Yay!
P.S. If you want to check out the code yourself, see
Perry’s GitHub repository. Check out the wishield-dev branch like this:
git clone -b wishield-dev git://github.com/iperry/maple-library.git
Build from the command line like this:
$ make flash
$ make install
