Espressif Systems (Shanghai) Pte. Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Espressif Systems”) announced recently that ESP8266EX, a wireless SoC has been approved by FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and has acquired the CE certification.

ESP8266EX is a wireless SoC that is designed for the Internet of Things (IoT). ESP8266EX consists of a high performance 32-bit MCU that can run up to 160 MHz, a 10-bit ADC with high precision, TCP/IP stack, and all RF components. The high integration of this single-chip greatly decreases the external components and reduces BOM cost of your whole solution. The IC features QFN32 package of only 5mm*5mm, which ideally reflects its high integration density and flexible applicability on your board.

Besides, ESP8266EX has various embedded interfaces including SPI, SDIO, UART, and I2C so that it can well meet customers’ developmental needs and requirements. It also supports functions including system-level power management through an adaptor, reset control, power-saving working mode, and so on, making it a perfect choice of high performance and lower power consumption IoT solution in the field.

ESP8266EX encapsulates the complete Wi-Fi and the Internet of Things solution, including hardware design, software, sample codes, compiler and downloading tools, detailed user manuals, BBS forum (bbs.espressif.com), etc. Users can self-customize their own server, or they can perform secondary development based on Software Development Kits provided by Espressif Systems, and flexibly adjust their software solution, so as to reduce development cycle, and speed up the products’ accessibility in the market.

Currently, ESP8266EX, a Wi-Fi and IoT solution has been mass produced and widely applied in smart-home appliances, home automation, industrial wireless control, wireless detectors and controllers using sensors, and other various areas, and has been highly acclaimed by developers and customers at home and abroad.

CE marking is a symbol of free marketability in the European Economic Area (EEA), whereas FCC is a mandatory authentication for certain electrical devices to be sold in the United States. ESP8266EX’s compliance with FCC rules and regulations, as well as the CE marking indicates that this IC is freely marketable in the European Union, the United States, and other countries. We are in full conviction that ESP8266EX and its related products will have business presence at home and abroad in the near future.

The FCC identifier is: 2AC7Z-ESP8266EX

The CE opinion number is: TCF-1933CC14
