The features for this device need to be corrected. The only interface available is UART. SPI is a “future” feature that has been on its way for several years now and there is no mention of SDIO at all. Also, the maximum throughput for the UART is around 900 kbps not 2.7 Mbps.
I’ve also found several conflicting specifications based on what the datasheet says and what the reference schematic does. The datasheet says SENS1 should be used to wake up the chip by tying the uart tx line (from the micro) to it. The schematic they provide and the schematic spark fun provides for the WiFlyShield have it tied to SENS0.
Lantronix makes something similar called the MatchPort. They correctly list their wifi speeds and seems to have more features but their packaging is too big for my project. Others might want to check it out though.
No public wish lists :(
