IOT_ ESP8266 HUZZAH BREAKOUT BOARD

by romrae on Sat Feb 29, 2020 5:08 pm

Hello,

1/ I am new to working with IOT and IOT modules and so, I would like to know if your USB TO TTL SERIAL CABLE - DEBUG would work well to communicate, via Windows 10, with the ESP8266 HUZZAH BREAKOUT BOARD? So that I would be able to do tasks such as Read/Write the Flash etc.

2/ Would I be able to program this module (ESP8266 HUZZAH BREAKOUT BOARD) using Micropython?

3/ Also, do you provide tutorial on setting up this board and using Micropython to program it?

Thanks very much.

1. Yes. Details are in the guide: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-huz ... 6-breakout.
2,3. Yes, we have a guide, but it's old: https://learn.adafruit.com/micropython- ... on-a-board. Things may have changed since it was written. We are concentrating on CircuitPython, which no longer supports the ESP8266, because it doesn't have native USB.

danhalbert,

Thank you very much for responding to my post. I came across the Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 after I made the post.

1/ I am assuming that I would be able to plug this module directly into my computer, running Windows, via USB cable. Correct?

2/ Do you also provide info on setting up and programming this module via Micropython?

Thanks ..

1/ Yes, it has a USB chip on the board.

2/ https://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/ ... intro.html is where we would refer you. We don't provide detailed support for MicroPython on ESP8266. We support CircuitPython on most of our boards. For wifi, we support using an ESP32 co-processor, such as the ESP32 Airlift FeatherWing (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4264), shield (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4285), an ESP32 breakout (e.g., https://www.adafruit.com/product/4201) or use boards with an integral ESP32 co-processor, such the Metro M4 Airlift (https://www.adafruit.com/product/4000) or the PyPortal. The library to use is https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Ci ... n_ESP32SPI.
