  • I prefer SparkFun’s version, https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12977 since it has the connector ends labeled. Same price

  • How to do you get a “hot start” or a “warm start” with this module? Looks like the module has a coin cell on it.
    Does it hold start up data over power down? If so for how long?

  • Yes, connection is handled by the module but sending via the serial need this link added see http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html for the details.

  • There is a difference between message encryption and security. I contend that you almost never need to hide (encrypt) your messages, just secure them so the cannot be changed without being noticed.

    For security you can use a message hash and a shared password.
    check my article http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/secureChallengeResponse/index.html which uses the compact SIPHASH on arduino, all done in software.

  • The free app pfodWifiConfig lets you easily configure RN WiFly to connect to any network and also set other device parameters like Sever listen port or client host and loging example sketch and supporting libraries are available from http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/pfodWifiConfig/RN_WiFly/pfodWifiConfig_WiFly.html

    The library handles all the $$$ CMD stuff for your and the free Android app provides a user friendly interface.

  • Yes I agree see my comments on the problems with this board and what you can do about them http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • Yes there are a number of design flaws with FIO V3, see http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html for details. I am currently writing up a project that overcomes most of these, cutting tracks + extra components

  • As mentioned in the tutorial, the Arduino add files on do not work for Arduino V1.5. I have fixed this and put up a set of files that work with Arduino V1.5.5

    These are available from http://www.forward.com.au/pfod/ArduinoProgramming/FioV3/index.html

  • Warning!! DO NOT run the standard BLINK example if you have a battery connected to this board. The output of pin 13 is connected to the output of the battery charger chip STAT and THERE IS NO CURRENT LIMITING RESISTOR.

    Excessive, damaging, current will flow when one output is high and the other low.

    Standard Arduino boards add a current limiting resistor between the two output pins when this situation can occur, such as with the RX serial pin.

No public wish lists :(
