Espressif ESP-WROVER-KIT

Hardware

Platform Espressif 32: Espressif Systems is a privately held fabless semiconductor company. They provide wireless communications and Wi-Fi chips which are widely used in mobile devices and the Internet of Things applications.

Microcontroller ESP32
Frequency 240MHz
Flash 4MB
RAM 320KB
Vendor Espressif

Configuration

Please use esp-wrover-kit ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

[env:esp-wrover-kit]
platform = espressif32
board = esp-wrover-kit

You can override default Espressif ESP-WROVER-KIT settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest esp-wrover-kit.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:esp-wrover-kit]
platform = espressif32
board = esp-wrover-kit

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = esp32

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 240000000L

Uploading

Espressif ESP-WROVER-KIT supports the next uploading protocols:

  • esptool
  • ftdi
  • esp-prog
  • jlink
  • olimex-arm-usb-tiny-h
  • olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h
  • olimex-arm-usb-ocd
  • olimex-jtag-tiny
  • iot-bus-jtag
  • tumpa
  • minimodule

Default protocol is esptool

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:esp-wrover-kit]
platform = espressif32
board = esp-wrover-kit

upload_protocol = esptool

Debugging

PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.

Warning

You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

Espressif ESP-WROVER-KIT has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.
