I am not really up to speed on all the versions of ESP devices. I have several of the RNT books/courses but am getting confused by all of the different versions of ESP devices out there. Is there a sort concise comparison or tutorial of what the differences are in general.
For instance – there are various versions of hardware, but how does that matter to me for software?
What does the ESP32 do that the ESP8266 does not? What won’t work in software if I use one over the other?
How can I tell which – ESP chip (?) I am getting in a particular version of the board.
When/why would I use say an ESP-01 over a ESP32 or a Raspberry Pi with wireless built in?
I see a lot of information on how to write software for the different versions, but not why I might want to use a particular version over another.
Here, we usually use ESP32 and ESP8266 boards.
There are many models of ESP32 and ESP8266 boards.
Usually, you need a different code for ESP32 and a different code for ESP8266.
However, between the ESP32 models you can use the same code. The same is true for the ESP8266.
We have several articles that may help you have a clear idea:
If you still have doubts, feel free to ask.
Thanks Sara, I had not noticed the comparison articles before. Helpful.
Are there PDF versions of them that I can download to my computer?
