Wio Lite W600 Arduino compatible board with the W600 WiFi module
Wio Lite W600 is a cost-effective Arduino compatible board with the W600 WiFi module. The Wio Lite W600 is based on a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0+ ATMEGA SAM D21 microcontroller and the W600 WiFi core is a 2.4GHz WiFi module features ARM Cortex-M3. Since the Wio Lite W600 uses SAM D21(the same chip used in Arduino Zero) as its Arduino Core, in theory, it is fully compatible with Arduino zero.
We've broken out the SAM D21 pins, the I/O level of this board is 3.3V. There are 6 analog pins and 14 digital pins, and also one UART, one I2C, one ICSP port is available. You can power this board with 5V USB Type C and 3.5V~4.2V Lipo battery.
As for the WiFi core, it's our old friend - W600 Module. We've already released the W600 Module and Grove - W600, Wio Lite W600 is a new member of the W600 family. W600 Module features ARM Cortex-M3 with 1MB on-chip flash and freeRTOS kernel. It is CE/FCC certificated and supports 802.11 b/g/n. We also provide a full Arduino W600 library including demos for Ap/Station/Ap-Station/Transparent Transmission/TCP, etc.
Wio Lite is a new product line from Seeed, and Wio Lite W600 is the first product in this series. Similar to the great Adafruit Feather series, the Wio Lite series is small in size and uniform in pins. Different performance and features are available when equipped with different processors and modules. Actually, Wio Lite is compatible with Feather board pins, we believe Feather is a very successful development platform in the community, and there are already many cool Feather boards out there from Adafruit. The Wio Lite aims at adding different wireless solutions to enrich the Feather community and provide more possibility for Feather users.
On top of that, we've released the Grove Shield for Wio Lite at the same time. With this shield, we bring over 200 Grove sensors, actuators and displays to Wio Lite series and the Feather community.
- Arduino Zero Compatible/ Adafruit Feather Compatible
- 2.4GHz onboard WiFi module supports 802.11 b/g/n
- Support 200+ Grove modules
The Grove Shield for Wio Lite is made for Seeed Studio Wio Lite Series. Now the Wio Lite W600 is available, we will release more Wio boards soon. Also, this Grove Shield can work with Adafruit Feather Boards. It brings 200+ Grove modules to Wio Lite and Feather community.
This Shield can break out the processor pins of Wio Lite (for instance, it is SAM D21 for Wio Lite W600) into the form of header and Grove connectors. There are 4 Grove digital connectors and 4 Grove analog connectors, a Grove UART port, and a Grove I2C port. As you can see, a switch is there for input power selection. If you use USB to power your Wio Lite board, then select the 5V mode, and if you use the lipo battery, please select the 3.3V.
