Arduino Nano ESP32 is a fusion of Arduino’s user-friendly interface with the power of the ESP32 microcontroller, offering endless opportunities in home automation, gaming, and education for creators at all levels.
Arduino has launched the Arduino Nano ESP32, the first Arduino board built around an Espressif ESP32 microcontroller. The board features a NORA-W106 module from u-blox with a USB-C connector, 16 MB (128 Mbit) of Flash, and compatibility with MicroPython and the Arduino IoT Cloud. This innovative board couples the user-friendly and adaptable environment of the Arduino with the energy-efficient potential of the ESP32-S3 system-on-a-chip microcontroller. Picture yourself developing a system to operate door locks from afar, automating blinds, crafting an interactive toy for children, or engaging students in creating smart objects with this handy board. The applications are limitless in home automation, gaming, and education. With regularly updated libraries and compatibility with any ESP32-supporting Arduino board, this could be your gateway to a vast world of open-source endeavours and innovative minds.
Designed with the well-known Nano form factor in mind, the compact size of this board makes it perfect for embedding in standalone projects, truly reflecting its tiny footprint. By harnessing the power of the ESP32-S3 microcontroller, renowned in the IoT realm, it offers full Arduino support for wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Users can seamlessly switch between Arduino and MicroPython programming with simple steps. Additionally, the board supports HID, emulating human interface devices such as keyboards or mice over USB, opening up new possibilities for interaction with your computer.
The Nano ESP32 is designed to offer out-of-the-box Arduino Cloud support. You can develop, control, and monitor your projects from anywhere, utilising beautiful custom dashboards accessible through your favourite browser or the IoT Remote app. Share information across devices, seamlessly integrate with Alexa and much more. The Nano ESP32 and Arduino Cloud form the ideal IoT power couple to spark your creativity and enjoyment.
Why choose Nano ESP32 over standard ESP32 board?
- You Prefer Arduino Integration: If you’re already familiar with the Arduino ecosystem or want to take advantage of Arduino Cloud support, the Nano ESP32 provides a more seamless experience.
- Space Constraints: The smaller form factor makes it a great choice for projects with limited space.
- Beginner-Friendly Approach: If you’re new to IoT or prefer a more guided and user-friendly development experience, including tutorials and introductory courses, the Nano ESP32 might be more appealing.
The Arduino Nano ESP32 offers a smooth user experience by seamlessly running code intended for other ESP32 devices. Its complete compatibility with the ESP32 ecosystem enables you to port existing code to this board without any hassle easily.
