• ESP32-C3: welcome to the ESP32 family
    • Intro


      Espressif announced a new SoC some time in November of 2020. The chip is called ESP32-C3. I happen to get an engineering sample and I'm happy to share my thoughts on this.

      My post will be more towards DIY-community due to my own background. TLDR: I'm really excited about the new addition to ESP32 family and the new features it brings.

      ESP32-C3 vs others

      The ESP32-C3 is suppose to take a place somewhere between ESP32/ESP32-S and our old friend ESP8266.

      I won't be surprised if the goal is to replace ESP8266 and to take its place in ...

    • ESP8266 Dev board around ESP-201 module

      I recently came across ESP8266 WiFi chip and various modules based on it. This is a low cost microcontroller with WiFi built into it. There is a huge community around ESP8266. You can develop for it using C, Lua and even Wiring using Arduino development tools.

      I decided to get my hands on it to play with it a little. I ordered some boards for a start. First, I needed some kind of easy prototyping dev board for easier testing. I got ESP-201 and Dev board designed specifically for it. After unsuccessful search looking for schematic ...
