ESP32 Starter and Development Kits for Building Bluetooth and WiFi Enabled IoT Devices

Posted by Industry News on

The integration of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Bluetooth LE allow a wide range of applications with ESP32 modules. Using Wi-Fi ensures connectivity within a large radius, while using Bluetooth allows the user to easily detect (with low-energy beacons) a module and connect it to a smartphone. The chips add priceless functionality and versatility to your applications with in-built antenna switches, RF balun, power amplifier, low-noise receive amplifier, filters, and power management modules. All ESP32 Series of modules have a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 105°C and are suitable for commercial application development with a robust 4-layer design that is fully compliant with FCC, CE-RED, SRRC, IC, KCC & TELEC standards.

Electronics Projects with ESP32: Building Web Pages, Applications, and WiFi Enabled Devices

Electronics Projects with the ESP32

Discover the powerful ESP8266 and ESP32 microcontrollers and their Wi-Fi communication. The ESP32 microcontroller features Bluetooth and BLE communication in addition to Wi-Fi. 

The book emphasizes practical projects, and readers are guided through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication, mobile app design and build, ESP-NOW and LoRa communication, and signal generation.

Projects throughout the book utilize the Wi-Fi functionality and processing power of the ESP microcontrollers. Projects are built in the Arduino IDE, so you don't need to download other programming software. 

Mobile apps are now ubiquitous, making the app build projects of the book relevant, as are the web page design projects.
