WiFi shield for Raspberry Pi

The WiFi shield for Raspberry Pi allows you to connect your shield to a WiFi network using the Waspmote WiFi module. This module fits in the XBee socket of our Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shields Connection Bridge.

This kit includes the products listed below.


WiFi shield for Raspberry Pi allows to communicate your Raspberry Pi with your router through WiFi protocol. The Waspmote WIFI module by Libelium is a certified Wi-Fi solution especially designed for customer who want to migrate their existing 802.15.4 architecture to a standard TCP/IP based platform without having to redesign their existing hardware. The Waspmote WIFI module incorporates 802.11 b/g/n radio, 32 bit processor, TCP/IP stack, real-time clock, crypto accelerator, power management unit and analog sensor interface.

This kit includes:
- WiFi module for Waspmote 5 dBi
- Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shield Connection Bridge

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

The Multiprotocol Radio Shield is an interconnection shield for Arduino, and was designed to connect two communication modules at the same time. This that means a lot of possibilities and applications can be made using the cooking-hacks modules.

The Multiprotocol Radio Shield includes the SPI bus connections that allows the use of the RS-485 and CAN Bus modules, but also is compatible with the rest of the cooking-hacks modules as RFID, XBee and Bluetooth.
