WiFi Shield CC3000
This is a shield for the famous wifi module CC3000 from TI (Texas Instruments). This module is a self-contained wireless network processor that makes incorporating internet connectivity into your project simple.
The CC3000 module utilizes an SPI interface allowing you, the user, to control the flow of data as you please. What makes the CC3000 unique is its ability to associate to a WiFi access point using a cell phone app in the Texas Instruments process called SmartConfig.
This shield even provides an optional feature that allows you to attach an external antenna, just in case you need a little extra power. This is a handy feature if you want to route an antenna to the outside of an enclosure or to increase your WiFi gain.
