New TinyPICO ESP32 development board




Adafruit has this week announced the availability of its new TinyPICO ESP32 offering a tiny development board suitable for a wide variety of different applications. The feature-rich ESP32 the powerful yet small development board is equipped with 4MB extra RAM, on-board RGB LED, and a 700 mAh 3.3V regulator. MicroPython firmware is pre-loaded, and with support for Arduino IDE and Espressif IDF.

“There are quite a few ESP32 boards on the market, but they all require you to compromise on one or more features. Some don’t have on-board battery management, while some do but they don’t have low deep sleep current. Others have great low-power modes, but are large and not breadboard-friendly, and none of them have extra RAM unless you go for a more expensive and larger WROVER-powered board. We just weren’t happy with the status quo – we wanted to have our cake and eat it too! So we designed the smallest un-compromising ESP32 development board in the world, and then went a step further and gave it 4 MB of extra RAM, an on-board RGB LED, and more juice with a 700 mA 3.3 V regulator.”




The TinyPICO ESP32 Development Board is now available to purchase directly from the Adafruit online store priced at $26.
