ESP32-POE and ESP32-POE-ISO back in stock

Silicon Labs stopped selling Si3204 POE controllers which were inside our very popular ESP32-POE and ESP32-POE-ISO boards. There is no stock anywhere neither information when they will be back in stock. So back in August we start searching for alternative and we evaluated several other solutions. We liked most Texas Instruments and made some prototypes and verified that they works fine.

Then we run blank PCBs in production but unfortunately we hit two major Chinese Holidays, so instead the blank PCBs to arrive in the normal 2 weeks we had to wait 5 weeks to produce our order then another week to arrive here.

Meantime we sold out all our stock of ESP32-POE and POE-ISO and created solid backlog before we stop the sales on the web.

We are glad that this week we shipped all backlog orders and now the boards are again for sale!

The new revisions of the boards are REV.G and the PCB info will be updated on GitHub tomorrow. From user point of view nothing changes – the new revision operates exactly the same and have same functionality as the previous Silicon Labs based solution.

ESP32-WROVER-DevKit-Lipo Open Source Hardware board with 4MB Flash and 8MB PSRAM is in stock

ESP32-WROVER-DevKit-Lipo

ESP32-WROVER-DevKit-LiPo is new open source hardware board which uses ESP32-WROVER modules with 4MB Flash and 8MB PSRAM.  It keeps same layout as ESP32-DevKit-C and ESP32-DevKit-Lipo, so boards made for these modules will work drop in.

The only difference between ESP32-WROOM and ESP32-WROVER modules beside the more RAM is that WROVER module has no GPIO16 and GPIO17 which are used internally and not connected to the outside pins.
