SparkFun Thing Plus - ESP32 WROOM (WRL-15663)
£18.19 ex VAT
The SparkFun ESP32 Thing Plus is the next step to get started with Espressif IoT ideations while still enjoying all the amenities of the original ESP32 Thing. Espressif's ESP32 WROOM is a powerful WiFi and Bluetooth MCU module that targets a wide variety of applications. At the core of this module is the ESP32-D0WDQ6 chip which is designed to be both scalable and adaptive. To make the Thing Plus even easier to use, SparkFun have moved a few pins around to make the board Feather compatible and it utilises the handy Qwiic Connect System which means no soldering or shields are required to connect it to the rest of your system!
The Thing does everything from turning on an LED to posting data with your chosen platform and can be programmed just like any microcontroller. You can even program the Thing through the Arduino IDE by installing the updated ESP32 Arduino Core.
The ESP32 Thing plus integrates a rich set of peripherals, ranging from capacitive touch sensors, Hall sensors, SD card interface, Ethernet, high-speed SPI, UART, I2S and I2C. Thanks to the onboard ESP32 WROOM module, the SparkFun Thing Plus features 16MB of flash memory, 520kB of internal SRAM, an integrated 802.11 BGN WiFi transceiver and dual-mode Bluetooth capabilities, and a JST connector to plug in a LiPo battery.
Please Note: The Arduino board definitions for this board are still a work in progress which means some functionality may not work. We would suggest checking the Hookup Guide for more details on this.
Warning: Make sure your power supply is 5V, a power spike can damage the IC.
