Each board comes as a fully assembled and tested shield, some male header for attaching it to an Arduino and a 2x3 female header that you can use to plug it into the ICSP port of a Mega.
There isn't a detailed tutorial yet but to get you started, there is a fully working Arduino library that is based off of TI's codebase but adapted for use with the AVR. Also provided is example code showing how to scan the SSID's, connect to your access point and run DHCP, do a DNS lookup to IP address, ping a site and connect to a remote TCP socket such as a website and print out the page.
Tutorial for working with the CC3000
- Max Dimensions: 68.61mm / 2.7" x 53.38mm / 2.1" x 2.87mm / 0.11"
- Weight: 8.5g
Please note the hardware is good, but the library code does not yet support all of the CC3000's functionality. SSID scanning, connection, DHCP, DNS lookup, ping, and UDP/TCP client connections (eg connect to a website and grab data) all work and are tested with example code. UDP/TCP server connections are not supported yet!
