Tiny ESP8266 Breakout Board

Posted on Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 in by DP


Stavros made a very small ESP8266 breakout board:

A very small breakout for the ESP8266. Includes all necessary pullups/pulldowns for it to boot to your code, a LDO regulator, a 3V3 output pin and enough breadboard space for one row on each side on a standard breadboard.

Full details on Github. Boards DirtyPCB order link here.

    The regulator looks a little wimpy for the 200+mA that the ESP can draw, and doesn’t have much heatsink area either. Of course, it shares this property with nearly every other ESP breakout board I’ve ever seen; maybe I’m just expecting too much.
