ESP32 Arduino is a popular and versatile microcontroller and a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) developed by Espressif Systems. esp32 Arduino includes a microcontroller unit (MCU) and various other components, making it a powerful platform for a wide range of embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It is a successor of the ESP8266.
Key features of the ESP32 Arduino
Here are some key features and characteristics of the ESP32 Arduino:
The ESP32 Arduino is a dual-core Ten-silica LX6 microcontroller that provides increased processing power and efficiency.
The ESP32 aurdino supports both Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth (Bluetooth 4.2 and Bluetooth Low Energy, BLE). That is why it is suitable for a wide range of IoT applications that require wireless communication.
Low Power Consumption
Esp32 consists of various power saving modes because it is designed to be power efficient. This is best feature of esp32 Arduino module.
It has many integrated peripherals parts such as touch sensors, Hall Effect sensor and temperature sensors. Capacitive touch is an extra feature of this device.
Rich Set of I/O Pins
It consists of wide range of GPIO (General-Purpose Input/Output) pins, sp1, i2c and UART interfaces. So you can add various sensors and peripheral devices with it.
Hardware-based security features is another best feature of esp32s (including secure boot, flash encryption, and cryptographic accelerators).
ESP32 is Cost-Effective
It is affordable & popular choice for IoT and embedded systems projects.
Different ESP32 modules available with varying features and capabilities. The developers can choose the module according to their projects and requirements.
Varity of Applications:
It is used in a wide range of projects and applications, including IoT devices, home automation, wearables, robotics, and etc.
It can be program using the Arduino IDE easily. It is widely supported by the open-source community and many libraries are also available to use it.
It consists of classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy that allow to connect to various devices and applications.
