Description How To More Details
 

Until the Wildfire came along, the typical an internet-connected Arduino system required two or three boards. Once assembled the base network software leaves little room for actual application code. WildFire is single integrated board based on the new TI CC3000 Wi-Fi module, the ATmega1284p processor and on-board microSD card slot.

Combining all the building blocks required for a network connected system on a single board allows you to build a compact network connected device. The increased memory size of ATmega1284p allows you to create larger applications with bigger data requirements. Additional I/O capabilities of the processor give you the ability to read additional sensors or control larger I/O intensive devices. The TI SmartConfig application allows you or your users to configure WildFire networking without having to edit and upload new system code.

very slow network, still buggy February 16, 2014
Reviewer: Jim Barstow from Oakland, CA United States  
I really wanted this to work but it just doesn’t deliver. I used Wicked Devices (the maker) support but they weren’t very helpful. Perhaps they’ll come through eventually and I’ll revise this review but I’ve sunk a lot of time into trying to make it work without much success.

I bought this to replace an ethernet arduino in a project that has been running for a year.

1) Random hangs
I reproduced the problem with a very small sketch and sent it to Wildfire support. I got the proverbial, "It works for me" answer. That was pretty much the end of their support. I eventually figured out a different implementation that avoided the hang. I eventually found a work around myself.

2) The wifi is very, very slow.
When transferring a 70K file via a readchar()/writechar() loop, Wildfire is 12x slower than an arduino ethernet board. This renders the Wildfire board unusable for the kinds of remote data logging I do.
