How to connect pyboard with a network?

Post by Lakshana » Thu Aug 02, 2018 12:59 am

Hi! I'm a newbie to micropython and pyboard. I'm interested in using pyboard for my IoT projects. Since pyboard does not have a networking module what else can be used to connect pyboard to a network?
I know about CC3000 and WIZ820IO. But CC3K has been discontinued and WIZ820IO is an ethernet module.
Is there any other Wi-Fi modules for connecting pyboard to a network?
Thanks in advance. :)

The CC3000 is still in production, just not recommended for new designs. As far as I know there are no other supported WiFi modules.

If you're using MQTT I devised a cheap solution using an ESP8266 to link a Pyboard to WiFi. The ESP8266 runs a firmware image supplied in the repo. There is a module which provides an MQTT API which may be run on the Pyboard. Your Pyboard application will require the use of asynchronous programming (uasyncio).
