The Shield is based on a ultra low power Wi-Fi System in Package (HDG104) made by H&D Wireless coupled with a powerful AVR32 processor that carries the full H&D Wi-Fi stack (TCP-IP) , leaving room to add your own protocols and customizations! The Wi-Fi Shield was first introduced at the NY, USA Maker faire in Sep. 2011. The Wi-Fi Shields are planned for USA and Global distribution during Q1/2012.
