Sneak preview of new OSHW IoT board: ESP32-Gateway


ESP32-GATEWAY

ESP32-EVB really took us lot of time to complete mostly due to the not so complete documentation around Ethernet and our own silly errors. Also we wanted to add so many interfaces there to may people evaluate them all: Ethernet, CAN, Infrared, Relays LiPo UPS etc etc and the board become 75×75 mm. The price also went from EUR 22 to EUR 26.

In parallel we quietly were working on stripped version named ESP32-GATEWAY, as the name says we wanted just to keep here the connectivity: WiFi, BLE, Ethernet, USB for programming and micro SD card.

All available GPIOs are made on 0.1″ step strip at the bottom of the board, and two nice mount holes:

ESP32-GATEWAY-1

Today we assembled the first prototypes and we will test tomorrow. If everything is OK we will run production. We already have 100 blank PCBs ready as after so much time spent on ESP32-EVB we do not expect any troubles, but still wanted to reduce the risk to throw in the garbage bin more than 100 boards if we missed something.

So hold your breath if everything is OK we will have 100 boards for sale next week 🙂

The price of ESP32-Gateway will be EUR 22.

    Do you have consumption numbers with active Wi-Fi and Ethernet negotiating 100TX? Is it possible to combine this with something like RT9400-5V to get PoE?
