The Pmod ESP32Pmod ESP32 provides an easy and cost-effective way to add wireless communication to any host platform or project. It uses the fully certified ESP-WROOM-32 Wi-Fi + BLE + BT module from Espressif Systems. Pmod ESP32Pmod ESP32 is suitable for a wide variety of applications, from low-power sensor networks to more demanding tasks such as music streaming. It was designed in collaboration with Renesas and is supported by all Renesas Synergy Platforms.

Pmod ESP32

 

 

Key features:

  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, and Bluetooth communication available
  • 20.5 dBm output power at the antenna
  • User button for resetting the processor after a mode switch
  • User switch for toggling between UART and SPI communication
  • Low power sleep mode for battery-powered applications
  • 12-pin Pmod connector with SPI and UART interfaces

 

Getting started with Pmod ESP32

What makes the module so effective is the pre-loaded AT instruction set firmware. the Pmod ESP32 doesn’t require the user to load or create their own network stack before using. A user just needs to plug in the Pmod, set the correct jumper settings and then write code on the host board to communicate over SPI or UART. In addition to the pre-loaded firmware, there are a wealth of examples and resources available at Digilent Wiki and Renesas

 

 

Who would use the Pmod ESP32?

Anyone who wants to add wireless capabilities to their project! The Pmod ESP32Pmod ESP32 is simple enough that it can be connected to an Arduino project and talked to in a few lines of code, but capable enough to be part of a design requiring remote data for complex algorithm development. It can serve as a wire-replacement or be reprogrammed to collect data and send it over to a computer. The capabilities of this Pmod can fit into most design applications.
