QT Py esp32-c3 Bluetooth Support

Post by ChrisDS »

Hello, I recently purchased an Adafruit QT py esp32-c3 board for its bluetooth and circuit python support. However, after working with it and discussions on the adafruit discord I learned that it doesn't actually have full bluetooth support with circuitpython. I'm really at a loss here. I'm trying to collect temperature with this board and send the data to a phone over bluetooth using circuit python. Can anyone tell me if this is possible with this board? I planned on getting these boards for a class project but I want to get a working proof of concept before I have our department buy them for the students.

Not sure about circuitpython. But looks like it's possible to complete your desired task with this board using the Arduino IDE: https://www.instructables.com/ESP32C3-B ... ng-Togeth/

correct, the C3 is very new and we dont have ESP BLE support yet in cpy. we think the nRF52840 is going to give you the very best BLE support in both circuitpy and arduino. a Circuit playground bluefruit is a great way to get students going with no soldering:
