DFRobot Brings RISC-V and Matter Compatibility to Its FireBeetle 2 Board with New ESP32-C6 Variant

By January 11, 2024February 15th, 2024No Comments

DFRobot has launched a new FireBeetle 2, swapping out the original design’s Espressif ESP32-S3 chip for the RISC-V-based ESP32-C6 — which brings with it support for Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax) alongside Bluetooth 5 and IEEE 802.15.4 connectivity.

“The FireBeetle 2 ESP32-C6 is a low-power IoT (Internet of Things) controller board designed based on the ESP32-C6 chip, making it suitable for smart home projects,” DFRobot writes of the new model, brought to our attention by Linux Gizmos. “The ESP32-C6 features a high-performance 160MHz RISC-V 32-bit processor, supporting communication protocols such as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, Zigbee 3.0, and Thread 1.3. This enables seamless integration into IoT networks with various communication protocols.”
