Introducing the TinyS2 – The Tiny Mighty ESP32-S2 development board in the TinyPICO format! This board features the powerful ESP32-S2, a single-core Tensilica processor with WiFi and native USB so it can run Arduino or CircuitPython code.
The ESP32-S2 is a highly integrated, low-power, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi System-on-Chip (SoC) solution that now has built-in native USB as well as some other interesting new technologies like Time of Flight distance measurements. With its state-of-the-art power and RF performance, this SoC is an ideal choice for a wide variety of application scenarios relating to the Internet of Things (IoT), wearable electronics, and smart homes.
Ships with a set of male headers and a JST connector that you can solder on if ya like. Each TinyS2 also ships with a UF2 bootloader and the latest version of CircuitPython that supports the ESP32-S2.
So many features in such a small footprint:
Just like its bigger brother TinyPICO, the TinyS2 has onboard LiPo battery charging
4MB of flash
Onboard RGB LED that can be shut down to reduce deep sleep current
A generous 700mA output 3.3V regulator.
TinyS2 also has 2MB of extra PSRAM on top of the 320K SRAM and 17 GPIO broken out.
TinyS2 is 17.8mm wide and 41mm long.
Note that, unlike the ESP32, it does not have dual cores and does not have Bluetooth or Bluetooth LE.

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.
