Espressif, the company behind the extremely popular ESP8266 and ESP32 microcontrollers has just announced their latest chip, ESP32-S2, last year. Compared to the ESP32, S2 have extra I/O, USB-OTG, low power and more secure. As a maker (not a hacker), of course we would like to try it using the most popular microcontroller platform – Arduino. But until now, they still don’t have provide an official support for Arduino IDE. However, you still can try it through GitHub branch called esp32s2. How to do it? Let’s watch the video!
This video shows how to program ESP32-S2 WiFi module using Arduino IDE (unofficial).
This is the list of hardware used in the video.
This is Arduino sample program to control built-in WS2812B RGB LED on Cucumber board. You need to install Adafruit Neopixel library from library manager.
