Arduino and Atmel launch secure Wi-Fi connectivity for all Arduino platforms

September 19, 2014

http://www.embedded.com/electronics-products/electronic-product-reviews/prototyping-and-development/4434921/Arduino-and-Atmel-launch-secure-Wi-Fi-connectivity-for-all-Arduino-platforms

The Atmel SoC is ATWINC1500

http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoWiFiShield

states use of an AVR32 UC3 (not correct; please read the reply from westfw).

The PICTURE in the article, and the shield at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoWiFiShield are the OLD WIFI shield.

(they should be ashamed of themselves!)

 

Here are some better articles (with a better picture) about the new one.

Thank you for the correction; looks much less expensive.

From a quick scan of the ATWINC1500 datasheet

Just watched the Atmel youtube video. Someone should tell Bob Martin how to pronounce "Arduino" correctly. It is not ARDREENO ... there is only one R in the name.

Definitely! He should go here https://translate.google.com/#en... and press that speaker button from Italian panel, to hear the correct pronunciation (that button have a "Listen" tooltip laugh ).

 

As is for Ubuntu. You have to hear it in Zulu pronunciation (as we don't have a speaker button for that, we have to consider Mark's pronunciation for now). Otherwise, you'll have to say "Personality" with the best english accent possible.

 

Those are the rules. It saves you from being funny, at least.

I'm interested BUT...

 

I was in love with Atmel until they released the Raven which was in appearance a Butterfly with wireless connectivity. I spent A LOT OF TIME trying to figure out how to get that thing to do things it should obviously be able to do and couldn't get it to do them. [Like wirelessly up load a program to it to blink an LED.] Somewhere in avrfreaks are some extended rants on this by little ole me. I asked here, and I asked Atmel many simple questions and didn't get anything useful back. They gave away a bunch of these to avrfreaks and so lots of folks tried this thing and failed. I finally posted a short list of very simple things that the Raven should be able to do and asked how could they be done. Nobody could get it to do the most simple and reasonable things. Finally it dawned on me that I wasn't actually an Atmel customer, that the love was one way and I could pretty much go f*ck myself. 

 

Now along comes this new wireless way to use a cheap board and I'm hesitant to jump in until someone tells me that this thing actually works as advertised.

 

So when someone actually gets their hands on one of these I'd appreciate the source, price and a brief review of how easy it is to get the pin 13 LED to blink.

 

[later]

Oh GOD, I just googled 'smiley raven site:avrfreaks.net' and now I want to say that I wasted a LOT OF TIME I mean a REALLY WHOLE HELL OF A LOT OF TIME on that Raven. My memory, being kind to my sanity, had censored out how much effort I'd put into that thing. I seriously wanted it to work as a replacement for the Butterfly and as a potential rival to the up and coming Arduino. And it was all just a pack of lies. No wonder I fell out of love with Atmel. I'm gun-shy so I'll just wait to see if this potentially excellent tool turns out to be real or just more Atmel wishful thinking marketing bs.[/later]

An Atmel characteristic is to not compete with second or third parties but to compete with fellow first parties (iow semiconductor manufacturers).

The body of Arduino operators is much larger than Atmel operators; compare the Arduino forum with AVR Freaks.

Do one thing REALLY well then consider adding a second thing then so forth and so on (iterative and incremental, cohesion, grow and thrive / don't die / don't stink).

fyi, I could not locate any distributor stocking ATWINC1500.

Arduino announces availability dates for the Zero and Wi-Fi Shield 101

Posted on: May 16, 2015

http://blog.atmel.com/2015/05/16/arduino-announces-availability-dates-of-the-arduino-zero-and-wi-fi-shield-101/

...

... the Wi-Fi 101 Shield not too far after on June 25th.

...

the Wi-Fi Shield 101 is powered by an ATWINC1500 wireless controller and protected with an ATECC108 crypto engine.

This provides users with a simple extension that can be seamlessly connected to any Arduino to make way for high-performance, secure Wi-Fi connectivity.

So that's a whole nine months from the original announcement until you can actually buy one!!

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...
  5. When your question is resolved, mark the solution: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

Bits & Pieces

The Arduino Wi-Fi Shield 101 is now available

Posted by: Atmel Staff

Posted on: September 30, 2015

http://blog.atmel.com/2015/09/30/the-arduino-wi-fi-shield-101-is-now-available/

...

The low-cost ($49.90) shield is an easy-to-use extension that can be seamlessly attached to any Arduino or Genuino board enabling high-performance Wi-Fi connectivity.

...

... Atmel SmartConnect WINC1500 module ...

... ATECC508A CryptoAuthentication chip for enhanced security.

...

It should be noted that this is the first Arduino product fully supporting SSL, as well as all the communication between your board and their secured server.

...

“A working example and instructions on how to get started are available on Arduino Cloud, a work-in-progress project that gives you access to a pre-configured MQTT server for your IoT sketches using only your Arduino account.

More examples and features will be available in the next months,” Arduino adds.

Fully supporting SSL? What about the Yun?

Is TLS/SSL hidden within the Yun's AR9331 Linux (OpenWrt-Yun)?

The connect functions are different :

P.S.

Yun

...

NB : In some countries, it is prohibited to sell WiFi enabled devices without government approval.

While waiting for proper certification, some local distributors are disabling WiFi functionality.

...

Appears Arduino is able to ride on Atmel's WINC1500 certification.

The yun is basically a wireless router with an avr tacked on, so ssl is not a problem.

Don't yet know the answer to your question.

It's interesting that "Made in EU" is on the board : http://store-usa.arduino.cc/products/asx00001

Will attempt a search; first, by distributors.

For now have only a USA-centric answer and all that goes with it (taxes, fees, usury, inflation) : http://store-usa.arduino.cc/pages/shipping-policy
