New ESP8266 (ESP-12) modules ready

Today, while my son and I were visiting the NMM, the breadboard adapters for my new ESP8266 type ESP-12 modules arrived. Finally …

ESP12_on_breadboardI was a bit surprised by their size though; the adapter covered the whole middle area of the breadboard, leaving no room to plug in wires as you can see. So instead of using the headers that came with the adapter, I used headers with a length of 18 mm. This way the adapter board is still held at its place on the breadboard and I can use female wires to connect to the ESP-12.

Now let’s see what has happened in the ESP8266 scene during the time I was away 😉

    I have this same board. Did you add any components to the pads underneath? I did not but then there is a discontinuity beteen the board VCC and the chip VCC. Interested in what you did.

    I have this board and when soldering it up I noticed that there are pads on the underside. What did you put there? If there are no components there, it seems that there is a discontinuity between VCC supply and the board VCC
