  • Great to add WiFi to an Arduino/RPI but even better to program itself

    posted bylindenaar on 05/25/2017

    Pros: out of the box firmware is easy to add WiFi to projects, module can be programmed itself to replace an Arduino (if only a few pins are needed), can be a soft-AP itself (also in dual mode), tiny form factor Cons: requires 3.3v power and level... Read more

  • Cheap tags that look solid and just work

    posted bylindenaar on 04/22/2017
