ESP32 DevKitC development board
ESP32 DevKitC description
The ESP32 DevKitC is a small entry-level board that uses the ESP32-WROOM-32U and ESP32-WROOM-32D modules to support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions. ESP32-Devkitc development board is mainly used to develop the functions of peripheral modules. The pins of the ESP32 integrated on the ESP32 Devkitc have been brought out, with rich peripherals and optimized pin layout, helping users to quickly realize product development. The ESP32-WROOM-32U and ESP32-WROOM-32D modules are Espressif general-purpose Wi-Fi + Bluetooth modules, which are powerful and versatile, and can be used for low-power sensor networks and demanding tasks, such as voice Encoding, audio streaming and MP3 decoding, etc.
ESP32 Devkitc datasheet
Power supply DIANY: 5V/3V (only one power supply can be used, not connected at the same time, otherwise the module will burn out)
Note: The ESP32 devkitc pins D0, D1, D2, D3, CMD and CLK are used for the internal communication between the ESP32 chip and the SPI flash, and are concentrated on both sides of ESP32-DevKitC near the USB port. Generally speaking, these pins should not be connected, otherwise it may affect the operation of SPI flash / SPI RAM.
ESP32 Devkitc Module comparison
The core of the ESP32-WROOM-32D and ESP32-WROOM-32U modules is the ESP32-DOWD chip, which belongs to the ESP32 series and is scalable and adaptive. The two CPU cores can be controlled independently. The clock frequency can be adjusted from 80 MH to 240 MHz. The user can cut off the power to the CPU and use the low-power coprocessor to continuously monitor the state changes of peripherals or whether some analog quantities exceed thresholds. The ESP32 Devkitc board integrates a wealth of peripherals, including capacitive touch sensors, Hall sensors, SD card interfaces, and Ethernet interfaces. High-speed SDIO/SPI, UART, 12S and I2C, etc.
The difference between ESP32-WROOM-32D and ESP32-WROOM-32U is that ESP32-WROOM-32U integrates a U.FL socket.
ESP32 Devkitc board Features
The ESP32 module used by the ESP32 Devkitc board integrates traditional Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy and Wi-Fi chips, so the ESP32-DevKitC development board has two IoT functions, Bluetooth and WIFI. Wi-Fi supports a wide range of communication connections, and also supports direct connection to the Internet through routers; while Bluetooth allows users to connect mobile phones or broadcast BLE Beacon for signal detection.
ESP32 Devkitc board supports data transfer rates up to 150 Mbps and antenna output power up to 20 dBm for maximum range wireless communication.
ESP32 Devkitc board has industry-leading technical specifications and excellent performance in terms of high integration, wireless transmission distance, power consumption, and network connectivity.
The ESP32 chip integrated in the ESP32 DevKitC has a sleep current of less than 5 µA, making it suitable for battery-powered wearable electronics. Moreover, the operating system of the ESP32 chip is freeRTOS with LwIP, and it also has built-in TLS 1.2 with hardware acceleration function, and supports OTA encryption upgrade, which is convenient for users to continuously upgrade.
