Module Comparison

Currently available ACKme Wi-Fi modules are:

The AMW004 Wallaby module has a faster microprocessor, has more RAM and flash, has more GPIOs and has a DAC.

The AMW006 Numbat module is smaller, consumes less power, has more independent PWMs and has a SPI slave interface.

The AMW106 Numbat module has more memory and a faster CPU than the AM006, but is otherwise identical.

Module differences affect GPIO configuration and the running of memory intensive features. See Peripherals and Memory.
