I wasn't sure about which forum to post my question in but this seemed liked the best fit. I am working with an Arduino Uno and Wifi Shield and would like to move the components off their respective platforms to a PCB. I am hoping for advice regarding feasibility and approach.
While I have found plenty of information on migrating the ATMega328 chip to a breadboard/PCB (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone) I have not had the same success with the Wifi Shield. So far the only thing I found to go by has been the Arduino Wifi Shield hardware page (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoWiFiShield). I am using Altium and have not been able to open the reference design but took a look at the schematic (http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/arduino-wifi-shield-schematic.pdf) this looks a lot more complicated than what is necessary for the ATMega328 but I am wondering if there is a simpler version since the Arduino Uno schematic provided on the site looks equally intimidating (http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/Arduino_Uno_Rev3-schematic.pdf).
I've searched for a tutorial on moving the Arduino Wifi Shield parts to a PCB along with the Uno's ATMega chip but, unfortunately, I've had little luck. I would very much appreciate it if someone could direct me to any relevant literature or explain to me if this is a realistic endeavor. I am confident in my ability to migrate the microcontroller to a breadboard/PCB but the RF component of the shield and the lack of available tutorials makes me wonder if this part is too advanced.
Hope to hear from you, Yusif Nurizade
