The WIFI enabled ESP8266 is one of those great chips to quote an old tradesman’s saying “it just does what it says on the tin”.
It’s only been around for a few short years but it’s made a great impact in the boom in WIFI enabled projects and products.
Building on this success of the ESP8266, Espressif announced the ESP32 late last year (2015).
As well as WIFI the ESP32 also features:
- Dual Core 32-bit Micros
- RAM 512KB
- ROM 128KB
- UART x2
- SPI x4
- I2C x2
- I2S x2
- GPIO x36
- ADC 12-bit x16
- DAC 10-bit x2
