Please note as of Feb 27, 2018 we are now selling version 3.0 of this product
Differences from WiPy 2.0:
Upgraded RAM from 512KB to 4MB
Upgraded External FLASH from 4MB to 8MB
Antenna select pin moved from GPIO16 to GPIO21 (P12)
Pycom introduces the WiPy 3.0 – a tiny MicroPython enabled WiFi & Bluetooth IoT development platform. With a 1KM WiFi range, state of the art Espressif ESP32 chipset and dual processor, the WiPy is all about taking the Internet of Things to the next level. Create and connect your things everywhere. Fast.
Powerful CPU, BLE and state of the art WiFi radio
1KM WiFi Range
MicroPython enabled, the Linux of IoT for fast deployment
Fits in a standard breadboard (with headers)
Ultra-low power usage: a fraction compared to other connected micro controllers
Hardware floating point acceleration
Version 3.0 gives this little board an extra kick, with a big RAM upgrade, to 4MB, and updating the FLASH to 8MB
And as you know, Pycom has already written a powerful and intuitive Python API to take advantage of every feature of the hardware.
Other WiFi boards are available and you might think, “yet another platform…”, but guess what? It’s not. All Pycom boards run Python and that works just like the Python you are used to working with on a PC. The learning curve is minimal.
Simply put, Pycom boards are all about Python and the internet, but with rocket fuel.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
