Adafruit CC3000 Wi-Fi Breakout Board with Onboard Ceramic Antenna
This breakout board from Adafruit features TI’s CC3000 Wi-Fi module on a compact, breadboard-compatible PCB with an onboard ceramic antenna. The CC3000 uses SPI for communication instead of UART, so the communication speed is not limited to a fixed baud rate. It supports 802.11b/g, open/WEP/WPA/WPA2 security, TKIP, and AES, and a built-in TCP/IP stack with a BSD socket interface supports TCP and UDP in client and server mode with up to 4 concurrent socket connections. An Arduino library and example sketches make it easy to get started.

The Adafruit CC3000 WiFi breakout board (v1.1) is based on the CC3000 Wi-Fi module from TI. The onboard ceramic antenna, breadboard-compatible design, and the Adafruit CC3000 Arduino library (compatible with Arduino Micro, Leonardo, Uno, and Mega as well as our Arduino-compatible A-Star controllers) allow for easy integration into embedded projects. The CC3000 uses SPI for communication instead of UART, so the communication speed is not limited to a fixed baud rate. It supports 802.11b/g, open/WEP/WPA/WPA2 security, TKIP, and AES. A built-in TCP/IP stack with a BSD socket interface supports TCP and UDP in client and server mode with up to 4 concurrent socket connections. The board also has a tri-state buffer on the MISO pin to allow the use of the CC3000 with other SPI devices on the same bus. We carry the Adafruit CC3000 Wi-Fi shield for Arduino with onboard ceramic antenna.
Note: The CC3000 does not support “AP” mode; it can connect to an access point, but it cannot be an access point.
For documentation and resources to help you use the CC3000 Wi-Fi breakout board, including tutorials, see the guide on Adafruit’s site.
