SPWF04 - wifi module from ST

Postby Smrtokvitek » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:26 am

This looks like a new wifi board with uPy support. Hard to tell if it can compete with esp8266 or esp32 boards. Eval. board is 25$/23€ module itself around 15€, that looks reasonable.

MicroPython 1.6, that's pretty old. Funny how they use "pyb" module even though it's not a pyboard.

Despite the odd naming that is interesting.

It does offer 2MB flash and wifi at a compelling price but more relevant is that it is coming from one of the major ARM chip manufacturer - and they mention uPy as a key piece of FW. I think that is great!

Lets hope other silicon manufacturers (TI, Freescale, Atmel..) join the uPy party now too.
