New ESP8266 board

You can well see it is an engineering sample, because I’m squeezing the wrong size packages into locations (quarter Watt resistors where eighth Watt components should be, etc) and using a mishmash of different component types, but you’ll forgive me, I’m sure.
The new design presents the Expressif ESP8266 device on an Arduino-sized board, supported by a full USB programming interface and power supply.
I should be careful to explain – this is not a “shield”. It does not sit on top of an Arduino. It REPLACES the Arduino. It IS the processor – and a whole bunch more…

  1. It looks cool, of course. But I have to say I’m getting plenty of positive results using the microcontroller in the ESP-8266 v12. But I would still say this is something I would enjoy having this on my bench for some tinkering.
