Playing with ESP8266 modules and IoT

ESP8266 as IoT device

Reviewing the Exosite Murano Platform for a IoT solution, I started to build a new board based on ESP8266 powered ESP-12E module.

Tools used: Autotrax DEX aka DEXPCB and DFM now!

 

Arduino ESP support installation instructions:

Start Arduino and open Preferences window.
Enter the following link into “Additional Board Manager URLs” field.:

http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json

Start the Boards Manager, update and select the ESP support package.
Install and use a USB to Serial adapter to program the board.
