Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like its namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.

This is the Adafruit Feather M0 WiFi w/ATWINC1500 our take on an 'all in one' Arduino compatible high speed, reliable WiFi with built in USB and battery charging. Its an Adafruit Feather M0 with a WiFi module, ready to rock! We have other boards in the Feather family, check'em out here.

Connect your Feather to the Internet with this fine new FCC certified WiFi module from Atmel. This 802.11bgn capable WiFi module is the best new thing for networking your devices, with built in low power management capabilites, Soft AP, SSL support and rock solid performance.

We were running our adafruit. io MQTT demo for a full weekend straight with no hiccups it would have run longer but we had to go to work, so we unplugged it .

This module is very fast easy to use in comparison to other WiFi modules we've used in the past. This module works with 802.11b, g, or n networks supports WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption.

You can connect to your own WiFi networks or create your own with "Soft AP" mode, where it becomes its own access point we have an example of it creating a webserver that you can then control the Arduino's pins . You can clock it as fast as 12MHz for speedy, reliable packet streaming.

And scanning/connecting to networks is very fast, just a second or two.

You might be wondering why use this when you can get a HUZZAH Feather? Well, you get:

Of course, both WiFi capable Feathers have their strengths and tradeoffs, we love both equally!

At the Feather M0's heart is an ATSAMD21G18 ARM Cortex M0 processor, clocked at 48 MHz and at 3.3V logic, the same one used in the Arduino Zero.

This chip has a whopping 256K of FLASH 8x more than the Atmega328 or 32u4 and 32K of RAM 16x as much ! This chip comes with built in USB so it has USB to Serial program debug capability built in with no need for an FTDI like chip. For advanced users who are comfortable with ASF, the SWDIO/SWCLK pins are available on the bottom, and when connected to a CMSIS DAP debugger can be used to use Atmel Studio for debugging.

To make it easy to use for portable projects, we added a connector for any of our 3.7V Lithium polymer batteries and built in battery charging. You don't need to use a battery, it will run just fine straight from the micro USB connector.

But if you do have a battery, you can take it on the go, then plug in the USB to recharge. The Feather will automatically switch over to USB power when it's available.

We also tied the battery through a divider to an analog pin, so you can measure and monitor the battery voltage to detect when you need a recharge.

Here are some handy specs! Like all Feather M0's you get:

Comes fully assembled and tested, with a USB bootloader that lets you quickly use it with the Arduino IDE.

Lipoly battery and MicroUSB cable not included but we do have lots of options in the shop if you'd like!
