Espressif’s ESP32-S2 Human Machine Interface Dev Kit 1 (ESP32-S2-HMI-DevKit-1) has been specifically designed for human-machine interfaces in smart-home automation controllers, smart speakers with display, smart alarm clocks, etc.
ESP32-S2-HMI-DevKit-1 is powered by the ESP32-S2-WROVER module, which supports a 4.3″ LCD screen. The development board can have an optional 1,950mAh rechargeable lithium battery installed. There’s lots of peripheral interfaces such as an extra USB serial programming/UART port, SPI, TWAI, I2C, and an SD card. It supports various sensors and functions such as audio playback and recording. Additionally, this development kit supports rapid secondary development, allowing developers to take advantage of the kit’s various onboard resources and expansion interfaces.
Please note this is an advanced development kit, for use with the ‘raw’ Espressif ESP IDF. For example, there isn’t CircuitPython or Arduino support for the display at this time. We’re stocking this because we think it’s a great dev board if you want to implement support for this hardware or play with display interfaces and the ESP32-S2
Wireless microcontroller module: ESP32-S2-WROVER module with ESP32-S2 Xtensa single-core 32-bit LX7 microprocessor, up to 240 MHz with 128 KB ROM, 320 KB SRAM, WiFi 4 connectivity, 4MB flash, 2MB PSRAM
Storage: MicroSD card slot
Display: 4.3″ display with 800×480 resolution connected with 16-bit interface plus I2C capacitive touch panel overlay
Display interface: 16-bit, 20 MHz, 8080 parallel communication

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.
