WiFi Module - ESP8266
The ESP8266 WiFi Module is a self contained SOC with integrated
TCP/IP protocol stack that can give any microcontroller access to your
WiFi network. The ESP8266 is capable of either hosting an application or
offloading all Wi-Fi networking functions from another application
processor. Each ESP8266 module comes pre-programmed with an AT command
set firmware, meaning, you can simply hook this up to your Arduino
device and get about as much WiFi-ability as a WiFi Shield offers (and
that’s just out of the box)! The ESP8266 module is an extremely cost
effective board with a huge, and ever growing, community.
This module has a powerful enough on-board processing and storage
capability that allows it to be integrated with the sensors and other
application specific devices through its GPIOs with minimal development
up-front and minimal loading during runtime. Its high degree of on-chip
integration allows for minimal external circuitry, including the
front-end module, is designed to occupy minimal PCB area. The ESP8266
supports APSD for VoIP applications and Bluetooth co-existance
interfaces, it contains a self-calibrated RF allowing it to work under
all operating conditions, and requires no external RF parts.
There is an almost limitless fountain of information available for
the ESP8266, all of which has been provided by amazing community
support. In the Documents section below you will find many
resources to aid you in using the ESP8266, even instructions on how to
transforming this module into an IoT (Internet of Things) solution!
