Espressif Unveils Its First Dual-Band Wi-Fi 6 and BLE RISC-V Part for the IoT: The ESP32-C5 | Gareth Halfacree,

Espressif has announced its first RISC-V chip — and the industry’s first, it claims — to offer dual-band Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity: the ESP32-C5.

Following on from the release of the ESP32-C3 and cost-reduced ESP32-C2, while skipping the ESP32-C4 moniker altogether, the ESP32-C5 is Espressif’s latest system-on-chip (SoC) designed around the free and open source RISC-V instruction set architecture — which the company recently announced it was going to be using for all parts in the future. A single-core 32-bit RISC-V part, the processor runs at up to 240MHz with 400kB of static RAM (SRAM) and 384kB of ROM with support for external flash storage.
