Espressif ships 100 millionth IoT chip
16 May 2018, News

Espressif Systems has reached the milestone of shipping its 100 millionth chip for the Internet of Things (IoT) market.

Specialising in the development of low-power Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo ICs and modules, the company has grown rapidly in recent years, thanks to the integration of its products into numerous award-winning, high-volume industrial and consumer applications.

The company, which is helmed by its founder, Teo Swee Ann, boasts an international team of innovative chip-design specialists and software/firmware developers. Its success has been driven primarily by its release of the ESP8266 system-on-chip in 2014, followed by its flagship SoC, the ESP32, in 2016.

According to Espressif, its solutions are being selected to power popular high-tech products ranging from tablets, set-top boxes, action cameras and wearables to smart appliances, lighting and HVAC climate controls. Its chips are also the basis of highly secure professional solutions, such as surveillance cameras, access control mechanisms, sensor networks and robots.

Further to this, it recently introduced a new series of IoT modules to complement its current offering of certified single- and dual-core, Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth products based on the ESP8266 and ESP32. For example, the ESP32-PICO-D4 is a system-in-package (SiP) module, seamlessly integrating in a 7 x 7 x 0,94 mm package such peripherals as a crystal oscillator, flash memory, filter capacitors and RF matching links.

Espressif Systems supports the democratisation of technology by providing open access to its codes. A tangible example of this is the IoT software development platform, ESP-IDF, which has allowed many third-party projects and platforms to be based on it.
