I just posted IL-G-WROOM02 on Creations. Feel free to discuss and make suggestions here.
Got the boards, thanks, now need time to try them out. Too many projects
Where would I find the driver code? Can you post a link?
What is the minimum hardware required? Would it work with a Reaper?
Driver code is on nuget : PervasiveDigital.Hardware.ESP8266
or source code : https://github.com/PervasiveDigital/serialwifi
With example code here : https://github.com/PervasiveDigital/serialwifi/tree/master/src/netmf43/Tests/G120EcoWroomTest
@ munderhill -
Sure would be nice if you supplied a simple pinout of the socket to the IL-G-WROOM02.
Um, it’s Gadgeteer, and socket type U. There’s not much else to it…
@ Brett -
I realize that but I still think it is a reasonable thing to ask for.
I’m genuinely interested - what will it give that looking at the standard U socket diagram wouldn’t give? If you really wanted to get deeper, you can open the code and it will tell you that they’re not using the GPIO pins on the U socket for anything (the example code passes NULL in for the reset and power pins)
@ Brett -
A U socket has two GPIO Pin 3 and 6.
I would like to know if they are used in some way. As in possibly a reset signal or other?
Not a problem, just thought I would ask.
They’re not using them in code - which is why I posted the above description. I agree, it’s great to know if there is a use, but if there isn’t… Plus, I happen to know Mike is on holidays at the moment, and these things are still new
RESET is on Gadgeteer pin 9
PROG is on Gadgeteer pin 3
My driver will use RESET if you pass it that pin, though I haven’t tested that extensively.
PROG is not currently supported, but may be eventually.

@ mcalsyn - Thanks for answering these questions while I was on vacation!
@ munderhill - What would it take to put an FTDI chip connected to one of the UARTS on these boards of yours?
@ Mr. John Smith - 4 wires to hookup an existing board you can get off eBay for a few dollars.
