ESP32-WROOM-32 WiFi/Bluetooth module is in stock!

esp32-wroom32-1

ESP32-WROOM-32 modules are in stock now!

Again these are from the very first lot and with limited supply. To give chances to more developers to try them we will not allow more than 3 modules per order.

This module is good only if you develop your own board. For these who are not good with the soldering iron and SMD components soldering our advice is to wait for new supply of ESP32-CoreBoards or our own ESP32-EVB which will come with two Relays, Two buttons, SD-card connector, Ethernet 100Mbit and all signals on prototyping friendly 0.1″ step connectors.

Thanks for all who posted tips on our blog about ESP32-EVB feature wishlist!

EDIT: there was question on Twitter if these are original Espressif parts and why there is no FCC/CE markinig, my guess is that the certification is not complete, as it’s in the datasheet but not on module body. The modules come directly from Espressif, as you can see from reel label they are manufactured October 15th 2016 and one week later are in our stock for sale 🙂

New Sitara AM3352-SOM-IND with industrial grade components work from -40C up to +85C

AM3352-SOM-1

Our popular AM3352-SOM module now is available in industrial temperature grade -40+85C under name AM3352-SOM-IND.

MT41K256M16HA-125IT:E memory used is with -40+95C operating temperature.

AM3352BZCZA100 processor used from Texas Instruments  is with -40+105C operating temperature.

AM3352-SOM-IND module can be evaluated with AM3352-SOM-EVB.

Debian Linux distribution is officially distributed, but recent patch add support for AM3352-SOM in Beaglebone kernel

New product: The popular HC06 Bluetooth to Serial modules are now in stock

BT-HC06-1

HC06 are popular Bluetooth to Serial modules bases at CSR BC04 Bluetooth technology. They have with build-in 2.4GHz antenna, support Bluetooth class 2 power level and operate with voltage in range 3.1V~4.2V

If you want to add Bluetooth wireless connectivity to your next device without hassle with Bluetooth protocol, HC06 will allow you this working as simple as with UART. The module have AT commands to listen and pair to other nearby BT devices, then you exchange data like if you worked with wired uart.

Tons of Arduino examples are available on the net. The module is made to be easy soldered on your own custom board.

RK3188-SOM Quad Core Cortex-A9 running at 1.6GHz System On Module first prototypes work fine

Image

May is the month of our System On Modules 🙂

Image

Today our next SOM with RK3188 successfully was tested and OK.

This one is little beast comparing to A20 it have 4x Cortex-A9 vs 2x Cortex-A7 and runs on 1.6GHz vs. 1GHz so RK3188 makes total 16000 DMPIS vs. 3800 DMIPS for A20 (4.2 times faster) and vs. 965 DMIPS for RaspberryPi (16.6 times faster).

On the SOM there is:

  • RK3188 running at 1.6Ghz
  • 1GB DDR3 memory
  • Power Managment Unit IC
  • optional 4GB NAND Flash
  • micro SD-card to boot Llinux or Android
  • two buttons
  • three status LEDs
  • debug UART console
  • 5 GPIO connectors 2×20 pins 0.05″ step

RK3188-SOM and RK3188-SOM-4GB will be available for sale in June. The price of RK3188-SOM will be EUR 40 / 1000 pcs, the price of RK3188-SOM-4GB will be EUR 45 / 1000 pcs

RK3188-SOM-EVB is also available with Eagle CAD files, so any one can tailor board to his needs:

Image

The RK3188-SOM-EVB reference design have:

  • RK3188-SOM-4GB module
  • 4x USB Hosts
  • 1x USB OTG
  • HDMI output
  • 100MB Ethernet
  • RTC with backup battery
  • LCD connector compatible with A13-LCDxx A10-LCDxx, A20-LCDxx displays we have
  • 2x UEXT connectors
  • 2x 40 pin GPIO connectors

RK3188-SOM-EVB will be available for sale in June too and the price is EUR 85.00

Android and Debian Linux will be provided.
