The ESP32 is the latest SoC from one of the leaders in IoT technology, Espressif Systems. The ESP32 SoC is a single chip solution that combines Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi capabilities. It is designed to perform extremely efficiently with its TSMC ultra low power 40nm technology. This chip can be used for a variety of applications due to its durability, versatility, RF performance, wide-set of features, and different power profiles.
Similar to the ESP8266, the ESP32 doesn’t have a native USB interface, so it needs an external USB to Serial adapter (e.g., FTDI FT232 USB to Serial UART adapter) to receive code from a computer’s USB connection.
The WeMos D1 Mini family of boards is one of the latest additions to the ESP32- and ESP8266-based Internet Of Things (IoT) ecosystem. With the ACROBOTIC WeMos ESP32 D1 Mini Pro development board, everything needed to program the latest ESP32 module (the ESP-WROOM-32) comes nicely packaged on a single board. Different than our ESP8266 D1 Mini V2 and ESP8266 D1 Mini Pro, the ESP32 D1 Mini carries the ESP32-WROOM-32 module while keeping the same form factor.
Together with a growing set of expansion boards (shields), the WeMos family is a great solution for building projects quickly using both the ESP8266 and ESP32 SoC.
