“Honey, I Shrunk the ESP32!” ESP32-C2 is the latest offering by Espressif. At just 4x4 mm the QFN package is even smaller than the ESP8266! Espressif observed a surprising advantage when they reduced the package size - The chip’s Wireless performance further improved. With ESP32-C2, Espressif Systems is trying to tackle the chip shortage by producing more chips on the same number of wafers.
1. RISC-V based 32-bit MCU at 120 MHz
2. Wi-Fi 4 & BLE 5
3. Built-in 272 KB SRAM
4. ESP RainMaker & ESP-Jumpstart Support out of the box
5. Supports Matter Protocol in such a low cost chip
6. SiP Flash Options of 1 MB, 2 MB & 4 MB available
Application: The chip is designed for high-capacity, low-data-rate simple IoT applications such as smart sockets, smart lighting, etc.
