  • Hmm. Tried to answer this one myself and it seems like you’re familiar with the products in question…

    Any advantage of this board (or the eval board you mentioned) over the Freakduino?


    It’s based on the AT86RF231 radio with a ATMEGA328 - I assume this design (being single-chip) might have better power characteristics? Arduino compatibility (especially with all the shields I have kicking around) is a big plus for me.

  • Based on the datasheet (but it’s not clear) and based on user reports - the WiFly is not 5V tolerant. Using 5V will, long or near term, lead to your WiFly burning out.

    3.3V for the data pins, 1.5V for the sensor pins.

No public wish lists :(
