Adafruit has announced the availability of the AirLift Bitsy add-on ESP32 WiFi co-processor priced at $14.95. The daughterboard allows you use the powerful ESP32 as a WiFi co-processor. Allowing your projects WiFi connection to be managed by a separate chip, makes your code simpler, and removes the need to cache socket data, or compile in and debug an SSL library. Adafruit explains a little more about the new arrival :
“You probably have your favourite ItsyBitsy (like the Itsy’ M4) that comes with its own set of awesome peripherals and lots of libraries. But it doesn’t have WiFi built in! So lets give that chip a best friend, the ESP32. This chip can handle all the heavy lifting of connecting to a WiFi network and transferring data from a site, even if its using the latest TLS/SSL encryption (it has root certificates pre-burned in). Send basic but powerful socket-based commands over 8MHz SPI for high speed data transfer.”
