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.
  • Requires an Arduino board (*) (not included)
  • Operating voltage 5V (supplied from the Arduino Board)
  • Connection via: IEEE 802.11 b/g/n for up to 72 Mbps networks
  • Encryption types: WEP and WPA2 Security Enterprise
  • Connection with Arduino on SPI port
  • Onboard CryptoAuthentication by ATMEL

(*) Please note that the Wifi Shield 101 is fully compatible with Arduino Zero board. The shield has a basic compatibility with Arduino Uno but is under heavy development, using it now could have some minor issues.
