Breadboard-free board eases new design intents
The evaluation board hosts a comprehensive set of peripheral functions that can be switched in or out of a prototype setup. Measuring 185x210x25mm, the EBB-ESP32 provides a convenient and breadboard-free method of pulling together an initial design without the need for a tangle of hook-up wires and the associated challenges of poor and unreliable connections.
In addition to hosting an Espressif ESP-Wroom-32 32-bit wireless microcontroller module, the board contains an Arduino compatible USB programming interface and a power supply function that provides all required board voltages from a DC supply in the range 8 VDC to 15 VDC. Board mounted peripheral devices include a one-wire Maxim Integrated DS18B20 temperature sensor, an Invensense MPU-9250 9-axis combined MEMS gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer, a Maxim Integrated MAX98357A Class D audio amplifier and an Invensense ICS-43432 digital microphone. Each peripheral has its own area on the board and can be switched on/off the I2C bus and its power turned on/off through a set of dedicated DIP switches. An even more comprehensive range of third-party modules can be accommodated on the board through the provision of eight 4-pin Grove sockets and a single mikroElektronika mikroBUS connector. A microSD card socket is also included on the board. Two potentiometers and a ‘diamond’ configuration of push button switches provide a means of providing inputs and controlling an application. Four RGB LEDS provide simple visual output methods, and the board is also equipped with pin-outs for two optional display modules; a small 0.95 inch (128×64 resolution) OLED display and a 2.8-inch TFT LCD (240×320 resolution).
