WiFi Drop is a very tiny open source micro-controller board equipped with a powerful ARM Cortex-M3 controller and a 802.11 b/g WiFi module. The micro-controller is programmable directly via USB. There is no need for an additional programmer. All the project related things will be public.
10 programmable I/O pins are available to use the module in your very own application. They are easy to access via standard pin headers on both sides of the module. The pin header spacing is perfectly aligned to use the WiFi Drop board with breadboards and perfboards.
Our target application is to use it in the field of home automation to make the lights and wall plugs controllable from your smartphone or computer. We already built a prototype as prove of concept for dimming the lights.
I implemented a demo application featuring the WiFi Drop and some RGB LED strip. The board controls the color of the LED strip. The color is selected from a HTML site with a color wheel which is hosted directly on this tiny little WiFi micro controller board. I implemented a minimalistic HTTP server to host the website. Have a look at the video!
