ESP32-DevKitC V4 Getting Started Guide
This user guide shows how to get started with ESP32-DevKitC V4 development board. For description of other versions of the ESP32-DevKitC check ESP32 Hardware Reference.
What You Need
- 1 × ESP32-DevKitC V4 board
- 1 × USB A / micro USB B cable
- 1 × PC loaded with Windows, Linux or Mac OS
ESP32-DevKitC V4 is a small-sized ESP32-based development board produced by Espressif. Most of the I/O pins are broken out to the pin headers on both sides for easy interfacing. Developers can connect these pins to peripherals as needed. Standard headers also make development easy and convenient when using a breadboard.
The following list and figure below describe key components, interfaces and controls of ESP32-DevKitC V4 board.
- ESP-WROOM-32 module soldered to the ESP32-DevKitC V4 board.
- Optionally ESP32-WROVER module may be soldered instead of the ESP-WROOM-32.
- USB-UART Bridge
