A new Qwiic WiFi Shield is now available, and don't sleep on the SparkFun SkeleBoard – it'll haunt your dreams if you do!
Hello and welcome, everyone to another Friday Product Post! We have one new product to showcase this week, for your complete and undivided attention. The new SparkFun Qwiic WiFi Shield utilizes the DA16200 from Dialog Semiconductor. This is a handy add-on shield that attaches to the top of an Arduino stack to give your R3 board efficient wireless and IoT capabilities.
SparkFun has teamed up with ARM and Dialog to provide you with this Qwiic WiFi Shield based around the DA16200 module. The DA16200 is a fully integrated WiFi module with a 40 MHz crystal oscillator, 32.768 KHz RTC clock, RF Lumped RF filter, 4 MB flash memory, and an on-board chip antenna. With the addition of a Qwiic connector, multiple GPIO options, JTAG connectors for deep dive programming, and you've got everything you need to get your R3 layout device ready to set up your next IoT project.
As a reminder, we still have some SkeleBoards still available, but stock is running short. We've already sent out about half of what we had available since last week. The SparkFun Thing Plus SkeleBoard features a matte black PCB with a super scary skeleton design in white silk and one of our favorite references out of the last few years: (DOOT). We've also made sure to include a 2.4GHz U.FL PCB Antenna so you won't need to worry about picking up any additional parts to get your board up and running! Other than that, this board is identical to our existing SparkFun Thing Plus - ESP32 WROOM (U.FL).
Rules & Information:
Don't worry, you'll still be able to purchase this product on it's own even without the promo code!
