We are pleased to bring you the Mackerel WiFi development board from ACKme! The AMW004-E03 Mackerel dev board provides you with a quick and easy way to develop and experiment with Wi-Fi networking. This board is perfect for embedded applications requiring medium/high data throughput in medium to high volume. On board each Mackerel board is the, fully certified, AMW004 Wallaby module. Using the Wallaby module is a breeze with Mackerel, simply plug the board into a computer using a standard USB cable, connect with a PC terminal application and start typing.
Each Mackerel is equipped with two 2x10 expansion headers, USB Mini B Connector, three pushbuttons (one Reset, two user defined), four status LEDs, and the AMW004 Wallaby module with each pin connected to a corresponding expansion header pin.
The Wallaby module ships with and runs WiConnect firmware, ACKme Networks easy-to-use and reliable serial Wi-Fi networking application that includes an embedded TCP/IP networking stack with SSL/TLS/HTTPS security. The WiConnect application running on the Wallaby module provides easy-to-use ASCII commands to read the state of the buttons and turn the LEDs on and off. Also provided from ACKme is the “goHACK.me” in browser software which adds wireless control to your projects, without programming, providing newer hackers an easy in to wireless interfaces.
