Espressif Systems’ Smart Connectivity Platform (ESCP) of high-performance wireless SOCs, for
mobile platform designers provides unsurpassed ability to embed Wi-Fi capabilities within other
systems with the greatest functionality.
When ESP8266 hosts the application, and when it is the only application processor in the device,
it is able to boot up directly from an external flash. It has integrated cache to improve the
performance of the system in such applications, and to minimize the memory requirements.
Alternately, serving as a Wi-Fi adapter, wireless internet access can be added to any
microcontroller-based design with simple connectivity through UART interface or the CPU
AHB bridge interface.
ESP8266 onboard processing and storage capabilities allow it to be integrated with the sensors
and other application specific devices through its GPIOs with minimal development up-front and
minimal loading during runtime. With its high degree of on-chip integration, which includes the
antenna switch balun, power management converters, it requires minimal external circuitry, and
the entire solution, including front-end module, is designed to occupy minimal PCB area. According to a datasheet of ESP8266-EVB https://www.icrfq.com/part/3833813-ESP8266_EVB.html .
Sophisticated system-level features include fast sleep/wake context switching for energy-
efficient VoIP, adaptive radio biasing for low-power operation, advanced signal processing, and
pur cancellation and radio co-existence features for common cellular, Bluetooth, DDR, LVDS,
LCD interference mitigation.
Is there any alternative or easy idea for the espressif smart connectivity platform Esp8266?
