  • Shawn,

    Have you been able to test this breakout board with the Ardurino Mega 2560?

    The comment below about the wiring of the CC3000 to the Arduino MEGA 2560 board was more of a statement (untested) to transition to the topic of having custom pins. I wasn’t saying that it works but I can see how it was unclear. :)

    We have been unsuccessful on having the Sparkfun CC3000 work with the Ardurino Mega 2560.

    Things look to fail right from the start:


    SparkFun CC3000 - Ping Test

    Something went wrong during CC3000 init! Connecting to: bluedog Error: Could not connect to AP Error: Could not obtain connection details Looking up IP address of: 192.168.1.124 Error: Could not lookup host by name Pinging 116.101.115.116 3 times… Error: no ping response Error: Could not disconnect from network Finished ping test

    The webclient and Smartconfig also fail.

    There may be some issues with the SPI pin definitions between the UNO and the Mega. Would it be possible for you to try the MEGA 2560 on your end and let us know?

    Thank you so much!

  • Hello! I hope everyone out there is having a great day!

    1.) Here is how the CC3000 wants to be wired up to the Arduino MEGA 2560 board.

    • GND → GND • VCC → 5V • MOSI → 11 (ATmega 2560 PB5 / pin 24) • MISO → 12 (ATmega 2560 PB6 / pin 25) • CS → 10 (ATmega 2560 PB4 / pin 23) • INT → 2 (ATmega 2560 PE4 / pin 6) • SCK → 13 (ATmega 2560 PB7 / pin 26) • EN → 7 (ATmega 2560 PH4 / pin 16)

    If I want to change the pins for INT, SCK and EN how will I be able to do this with the CC3000 library? To work on our custom board we want to make the following changes shown below. Last three lines for INT, SCK and EN. Will the changes below be possible?

    • GND → GND • VCC → 5V • MOSI → 11 (ATmega 2560 PB5 / pin 24) • MISO → 12 (ATmega 2560 PB6 / pin 25) • CS → 10 (ATmega 2560 PB4 / pin 23) • INT → 2 (ATmega 2560 PE4 / pin 6) changed to D14. • SCK → 13 (ATmega 2560 PB7 / pin 26) changed to D42 • EN → 7 (ATmega 2560 PH4 / pin 16) changed to D15.

    2.) Any tips on integrating this into an existing sketch that has been ported to a purely C/C++ project?

No public wish lists :(
