Introduction to ESPresso Lite V2.0
Singapore's very own Wi-Fi Arduino-compatible micro-controller based on the popular ESP8266!
ESPresso Lite V2.0 is an affordable Wi-Fi development board designed by Singapore-based IoT company, Espert Pte Ltd and manufactured & distributed by Cytron Technologies. It uses the ESP8266 chipset as the main micro-controller and supports the Arduino environment. Beginners with no experience in software programming or electronics can start building objects that can respond to light, sound, touch and movement autonomously and wirelessly (‘smart’ objects) connect them together.
The board consists of the following distinctive features:
Made by Singapore. Innovate with ASEAN. Sold around the world.
From unboxing to making your first Internet connection
Thank you for supporting the ESPresso Lite project. The box that you receive contains the ESPresso Lite V2.0 board and its corresponding pin and headers. It will require some additional soldering work from you, O our esteemed user.
Assemble and solder
Locate the correct pins and headers prior to soldering to avoid making any mistakes. Please ensure that appropriate safety precautions have been considered before starting out.
