Additional Information [Hide]

Funky name, familiar package, different function - that's an Electric Imp.

It's hard to believe, but these guys have managed to wedge an 892.11b/g/n wifi radio, decent antenna, Cortex-M3 and I/O management into an SD card package. Really. You are actually able to use 6 configurable I/O lines to the microcontroller, including:

  • PWM clocking (to each pin!)
  • 3 UARTS
  • 2 SPI channels
  • 2 I2C channels (master or slave)
  • 2 Digital-to-analog converters
  • A pulse counter
  • A wake-from-sleep monitor

Then you communicate to it wirelessly over your wifi network. Crazy.

And not only is it wifi-communcated, it's Cloud-connected and browser-programmed in a C-like object-oriented language called Squirrel.

So, NO, it isn't something you plug into your DSLR camera, or MP3-player and expect to make it internet-friendly. What it is, is a tight'n'tidy, powerful, Internet-cloud connector for you project that just happens to be in the shape of an SD card!
