ESP8266, EMW3165 and the new ESP32
A story about the evolution of these tiny little units of wireless functionality.
If you haven’t heard about these, here’s a quick overview on how these evolved and basically disrupted embedded systems.
This article starts of with the ESP8266, describing how it came about, who the manufacturers are, what sorts of SDKs are around for them, what people have done with them and what their capabilities are. I will try to add as many links as I possibly can, if there’s something I left out, please add them to the comments so necessary updates are made.
