The ESP-PSRAM64H is a 64 Mbit (8 Megabyte) serial pseudo SRAM device, organized in 8 M x 8 bits and in a compact SOIC-8 package. It is fabricated using the high-performance and high-reliability CMOS technology and can operate at 3.3V and can support up to 133 MHz clock rate. Note, however, that burst operations in which cross page boundaries have a lower max input clock frequency at 84 MHz.
The PSRAM device can be accessed via basic Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) or faster Quad Peripheral Interface (QPI) is supported if the application needs faster data rates. Because it is RAM, not FLASH or EEPROM, this device supports unlimited reads and writes to the memory array.
A handy treat to upgrade an ESP32 based board or Teensy 4.1‘s that have a spot on the bottom for PSRAM addition. While it can be used with basic SPI or QSPI interfacing, its best used with chips that have memory-mapping support for external PSRAM so you get seamless operation.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
