Description: This is the CUhead Pro, a WiFi/Ethernet Arduino shield with Airplay and DLNA audio and also acts as an access point for WiFi devices. It also makes julienne fries! Alright, that last one may have been a stretch but with this shield you WILL be able to wirelessly push music and other sounds from your iOS and Android device and more. With very minimal work and programming you can have this versatile little guy up and running in no time. As the CUhead Pro is a shield, simply plug it into your Arduino based dev board and start transmitting.

The CUhead Pro is equipped with USB-A port, RJ45 ethernet port (just in case there isn't a WiFi signal), and a 3.5mm audio jack. It is important to note that on this shield the USB host is reversed for future firmware updates. An interesting feature about the CUhead Pro is the detachable WiFi module with an RT5350 SoC chip from Ralink. The RT5350 SoC combines Ralink’s IEEE 802.11n draft compliant 1T1R MAC/BBP/PA/RF, a high performance 360 MHz MIPS24KEc CPU core, a 5-port integrated 10/100 Ethernet switch/PHY and a USB host/device.

Note: LinkSprite has completed working on OpenWRT support! Check the link in the Documents section below for more information.

  • There are quite a few standalone dev boards/modules based on rt5350 such as carambola and others. No info on Flash/RAM? Yun might be a better choice.

    Not sure about marketing airplay compatibility based on an unlicensed implementation, though.

    EDIT: This module is also known as USR-S12 or HF-S12

    • The “Port OpenWRT to Cuhead Pro” wiki page linked now says it has the following:

      • CPU: Ralink RT5350F (360MHz, MIPS architecture)
      • SDRAM: Winbond W9825g6jh-6 (32MB)
      • FLASH: MXIC MX25L6405D (8MB)
  • Bahaha, Lady Gaga Warning. I LOLd.

  • It would be very useful to know if you can program your Arduino wirelessly through this device. The description of comms through the UART gives me some hope that it can be done.

  • I read the wiki. It seems to me that the CUhead Pro is more like a dedicated device, using the Arduino for power. I don’t see much communication between the 2, is there?

    • This board is similar to the Linino part from the Arduino Yun. But without all the software support (the so called Bridge library) for the communication between the atmega and the Ralink SoC.

      Linino is based on the Qualcomm/Atheros AR9331 SoC (like carambola2)

    • That’s what I was seeing too. I think it can use the Arduino’s UART to pass information back and forth.
