ESP32 getting started..

June 28, 2017

I’ve been playing around with the ESP32 modules I got last month. Getting ESP32 working with Arduino IDE was pretty easy (see link below). I’ve now on to harder things, getting the ESP32 SDK and Eclipse installed.

Here’s a few links to ESP32 sites I’ve found useful:

ESP32 at last

May 29, 2017

After a couple of failed attempts I’ve finally got my hands on a ESP32 module.

My first couple of ebay purchases failed to arrived, which is becoming a regular thing with ebay at the moment.

I’ve got a couple of ideas for using the WIFI in a standalone WIFI hub, so its time to fire up the soldering iron

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
  • WIFI
  • Bluetooth
  • Ethernet
  • UART x2
  • SPI x4
  • I2C x2
  • I2S x2
  • SD/SDIO
  • CAN
  • GPIO x36
  • ADC 12-bit x16
  • DAC 10-bit x2
  • PWM
    and more

With the ESP32 August release date fast approaching you can now find more solid information on its capabilities. Here’s a few links to wet your appetite:
