HUZZAH ESP8266 Breakout

by TimmyMcTimTim on Fri Apr 30, 2021 7:47 am

Could someone let me know what code this board comes preloaded with ? Is it just what Espressif program into it, or do Adafruit add anything ?

If I use this Huzzah board for development, can I then replace it with the ESP8266MOD module directly from Espressif in my product ? ie will my application code I have developed still work ?

Thanks

The ESP8266 has a ROM bootloader and OS, and I don't think the user-programmable memory contains any code. If there is anything, it's something trivial like Blink.

On the hardware side, the breakout has a voltage regulator and some support circuits to make launching the bootloader easier.

Not a clue.. it depends heavily on the circuit around the breakout and how you want to interact with it. You'll have to do your own testing.
