The Chinese company Espressif Systems has recently developed a new microcontroller chip named the ESP32. In addition to all the ESP8266 features, the ESP32 provides Bluetooth communications capability, larger SRAM data memory, more GPIOs, more interface signals, touch sensor, temperature sensor, higher CPU speed, CAN bus connectivity, higher resolution ADC converters, DAC converters, and security features.
This book is an introduction to the ESP32 processor and describes the main hardware and software features of this chip. The main aim of the book is to teach the reader how to use the ESP32 hardware and software in practical projects, especially using the highly popular ESP32 development board. Many basic, simple, and intermediate level projects are given in the book based on the ESP32 DevKitC development board, using the highly popular Arduino IDE and also the MicroPython programming language. The projects have been organized in increasing levels of difficulty.
The ESP32 hardware kit is available from Elektor, especially prepared for the book. The kit contains all the components used in the projects in this book. With the help of this hardware kit it should be easy and fun to build the projects in the book.
