Integrated PCB antenna with range up to 400m TCP/IP stack integrated in MCW10001 controller Simple UART communication interface IEEE 802.11 compliant
WiFi PLUS Click is an accessory board in mikroBUS form factor. It's a compact solution for adding WiFi communication to your device. It features a Microchip MRF24WB0MA 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.11 compliant module as well as a Microchip MCW1001 companion controller with on-board TCP/IP stack and 802.11 connection manager. WiFi PLUS Click communicates with a target board via UART interface, so even microcontrollers with little RAM or Flash can run WiFi applications. The board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only. It has an option to achieve low power consumption.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. Newer (v7) development systems manufactured by mikroElektronika, which we carry, have mikroBUS sockets already built in.
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
WiFi PLUS Click Board Resources
WiFi HTTP Demo This code shows you how to use the Net_Wireless_MCW1001 library. The board will reply to HTTP requests on port 80, GET method with pathnames: / will return the HTML main page; /s will return the board status as a text string; /t0 to /t3 will toggle RA0 to RA3 bits and return the HTML main page. The demo code was written for the EasyPIC v7 development board in mikroC, mikroBASIC and mikroPascal. The microcontroller hosts a web page that can be viewed using your web browser on a PC, tablet or mobile phone. The web page contains monitoring elements which allow you to change the state of digital I/O pins, or to monitor digital and analog inputs.

WiFi Library Note: Some routers do not properly deliver ARP requests to the WiFi module, in which case the only way to find out the MAC address of the module would be to read gratuitous ARP packets the module sends periodically. However, some operating systems, e.g. Windows 7, ignore such packets, so you would have to update the ARP list manually to see them.
