What is the electric imp? In essence, the Imp provides an easy, integrated way to connect almost any hardware device both to other devices and to internet services. It's more than just a WiFi card, or even a WiFi module with processing built in - it's an integrated platform that deals with the drudgery of connectivity, allowing you to concentrate on the application instead of the mechanics. Ā The Electric Imp is a WiFi enabled development platform powered by a Cortex-M3 processor core, the dimension is 32 x 24 x 2.1mm in a SD card form factor.Ā Ā The Electric Imp API provides a set of classes and global objects with which imp code may access local hardware and remote cloud functionality. This API augments theĀ Squirrel Standard Library, which provides generic functionality. For more general information about the Squirrel language see Learning Squirrel.Ā Ā An April breakout board will be strongly recommended to go with Electric Imp.Ā Ā Features 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Ā ā¢20MHz 11n channels, 1 x 1 Ā ā¢+16.75dBm max output power (802.11b) Ā ā¢-97dBm typical sensitivity (1Mbps) Ā ā¢Integrated antenna with 2.5dBi max gain 32-bit Cortex M3 processor Robust embedded operating system with fail-safe firmware updates Ā ā¢Virtual machine for vendor firmware Embedded bi-color red/greenLED for status indication Embedded phototransistor for our patent-pending BlinkUp optical configuration technology 6 user selectable I/Os Ā ā¢GPIO, PWM, Analog input & output Ā ā¢SPI (2 channels), UART (3 channels), I2C (2 channels) Low power 6uA sleep mode FCC, CE, IC C-Tick certified Ā Pin assignments and description Ā Pin Number Pin Name Description 3 Vss Ground 4 VDD Power input 1,2,5,7,8&9 PIN1,2,5,7,8&9 I/O, please refer to Pin mux table 6 ID Connects to the Atmel ATSHA ID chip Ā Pin mux In addition to acting as a GPIO, each pin on the imp001 can be configured
