AWS Pop-up Loft Dedicated to Espressif

San Fransisco, China
Sep 30, 2017

San Fransisco get ready! Espressif will set the agenda of the upcoming AWS Pop-up Loft on October 31, in the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale and grow. The AWS Pop-up Lofts are events where startups and developers can meet, work on their apps, attend educational sessions, and get in-person answers to AWS technical questions – all at no cost. Additionally, startups and developers can sharpen their business acumen by attending best-practice sessions that include advice on PR, legal, and funding issues. Plus, they can network and learn first-hand from other hot startups, VCs, and accelerators.

Among the topics that will be discussed at the event is our new System-in-Package (SiP) module, ESP32-PICO-D4, which is based on ESP32, providing complete Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionalities. The module has as small a size as 7.0mm × 7.0mm × 0.94mm, thus requiring minimal PCB area. The module integrates a 4-MB SPI flash. At the core of this module is the ESP32 chip, which is a single 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo chip designed with TSMC’s 40 nm ultra-low power technology. ESP32-PICO-D4 integrates all peripheral components, including a crystal oscillator, flash, filter capacitors and RF matching links in one single package. Given that no other peripheral components are involved, module soldering and testing is not required either. As such, ESP32-PICO-D4 reduces the complexity of supply chain and improves control efficiency. With its ultra-small size, robust performance and low-energy consumption, ESP32-PICO-D4 is well suited for any space-limited or battery-operated applications, such as wearable electronics, medical equipment, sensors and other IoT products. 

In the following days we will provide you with more information about the AWS Pop-up Loft. So, stay tuned!
