Half-year ago, Ai-Thinker launched new ESP32-C3 series modules that are fully pin-to-pin compatible with ESP8266, namely ESP-C3-12F, ESP-C3-32S, ESP-C3-01M, ESP-C3-13, ESP-C3-13U. After several months, the company got further requirements about the modules, notably in terms of size. So based on the demand, Ai-Thinker has now added the ESP-C3 mini series family starting with two modules: ESP32-C3-M1 and ESP-C3-M1-I measuring 16.6×13.2mm and 12.5×13.2mm respectively.
Some of the wonderful features of the new ESP-C3 mini modules include:
- ESP32-C3 MCU – 32-bit RISC-V single-core processor up to 160 MHz, with 400 KB SRAM, 384 KB ROM, 8KB RTC SRAM
