Metro M4 Express Airlift Lite Only Supports Arduino WiFi?

by djmastrianni on Thu Aug 12, 2021 1:54 pm

I'm comparing the Metro M4 Express Airlift Lite board with the Metro ESP32-S2. The various documents seem to imply that the for the ESP32-S2, WiFi will work with both CircuitPython code and Arduino code, whereas the Airlift WiFi will only work with Arduino code. I would appreciate some clarification. Also, is the Adafruit WiFiNINA library compatible with both boards. I'm trying to replace a couple of Arduino Uno WiFi Rev 2 boards that are running WiFi projects now but I'm also interested in learning/converting them to CircuitPython. Thanks for any clarification you can offer!

The AirLift range of options (ESP32 wifi coprocessor) work fine in CircuitPython and are fully supported. E.g. see https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-metro-m4-express-airlift-wifi/circuitpython-setup.
