The daughterboard Architech Prado of Silica helps to access the WiFly RN-131C module (version 4.00) of Microchip.
It was designed to be connected to the LPC1115 LPCXpresso board.
The project provides a demo developed with the LPCXpresso IDE and through the microcontroller LPC1115 configures the RN-131C module to operate in different modes.

Architech Prado Features:

  • Interfaceable with:

    • LPC1115 LPCXpresso board
    • mBed board
  • 1 UART 3,3V level for debugging purpose

  • 5 status leds

  • Power supply by mini-usb


The WiFly radio module is a complete standalone embedded wireless LAN access device.
The device has on board TCP/IP stack and applications, requiring only 4 pins (POWER, TX, RX, GND) to design in.
Once initial configuration is set, the radio can automatically access the Wi-Fi network and send/receive serial data over UART.
