ePulse Feather – a low power ESP32 development board #ESP32 #Feather @thingpulse
The ePulse Feather is a low power ESP32 development board in the Feather form factor. It is optimized for applications where a low sleep current and LiPo battery support is required. The VIN pin accepts voltages between 3V3 and 6V. When the ePulse board is in deep sleep it only consumes between 12uA (above 3.3V) and 27uA (below 3.3V). Most ESP32 and ESP8266 board consume around 100 – 130uA.
This board takes advantage of the ESP32-WROVER-E module which breaks out many of the ESP32’s pins. It also comes with 8MB PSRAM which enables you to implement memory-hungry applications like embedded machine learning or using a graphics driver with a frame buffer. Please note that current software stacks might limit the PSRAM usage to 4MB.
The ePulse development board gives you access to no less than 20 GPIO pins.
The ePulse Feather is currently available on pre-order from ThingPulse. Expected shipping date is end of February.
