The CC3000 from TI (Texas Instruments) is a self-contained wireless network processor that makes incorporating internet connectivity into your project simple. Instead of the more standard UART communication method, the CC3000 module utilizes an SPI interface allowing you, the user, to control the flow of data as you please. What makes the CC3000 unique is its ability to associate to a WiFi access point using a cell phone app in the Texas Instruments process called SmartConfig. This is a great module if you need to add wireless networking to your project!
The CC3000 is an IEEE 802.11 b/g compliant WiFi module with an embedded IPv4 TCP/IP stack with an SPI host interface at 16MHz. Each CC3000 requires a power supply of 2.9V – 4.8V with a max current rating of 92mA and is capable of connecting to WEP, WPA/WPA2 WiFi security Modes.
