The base components of Espruino WiFi board are STM32F411 (32bit ARM Cortex M4 @100MHz) microcontroller and WiFi ESP8266, wireless module with ESP8266...

ESP32 is the most anticipated component this year, we will meet with a lot of dev boards with this very popular chip for wireless workaround.

Freematics shared development board called ESPRIT with ESP32.

The board contains ESP32, Arduino Uno rev3 compatible connectors, 4pin header with I2C bus and 2x UART serial header.


SinoVoip released a new version of BananaPi M64. The processor was changed to Allwinner R18 - 64bit.
The new version of Banana Pi M64 is pin-to-pin compatible with previous version of that.
Other specs are the same....

Adafruit released a new development board with ESP32. That is not only one devboard, maybe you know these dev boards like SunDuino ESP32, Whitecat ESP32 N1 board, LoLin32 by Wemos or ESP-WROVER-KIT by Espressif.


Maybe you remember on news about the alternative to ESP8266 called RTL8710. Now is available a new development board with RTL8711AM - CREATOR Pro by RAKwireless.

The RTL8711AM integrates high-performance CPU, WiFi, Ethernet, peripherals like SPI, I2C and more. RT8711 can be easier implemented to Arduino with through Standard Arduino library...

Sinovoip, well-known like single-board computer manufacturer of Banana Pi, released other pictures of IoT module which uses NB-IoT (NarrowBand Internet of Things). This IoT network uses Vodafone in trial version in Czech Republic (2017).
NB-IoT is standard Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) used for communication of IoT devices(Internet of Things)...

Do you know WhitecatBoard? It is other company which develops development board with ESP32. If you pay a little bit more you get ESP32 with wireless module for LoRa network...

Finally, I can write you a short tutorial how to play with ESP32 (more powerful than ESP8266). On the internet is a lot of tutorials how to do it, but this is a little bit different. I don't have LoLin32, Hornbill or ESP-DevkitC.

Logic analyzer should be the base component for your development. I'm sure that you know this chinese clone of logic analyzer of Saleae with chip CY7C68013A by Cypress.
The maximum of sample rate is 24 MHz. The clone uses software by saleae which knows to analyze a lot of buses.

ASID company has become a member of the IQRF Alliance. Currently, the first stage of the extensive KRD project – the construction of intelligent buildings in Bratislava with an area of more than 70,000 square meters, is under way. For members of the IQRF Alliance, this is an important opportunity to participate in the implementation of this Smart Buildings project. You will be able to meet with ASID's projects personally at the IQRF Summit 2017. Here you will also see solutions and products for smart cities, smart homes and buildings, industry, security and transport...

Hardware that has missed your attention. - RedBear DUO. The device combines WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy.
