ESP8266 WiFi UART Module for IoT Webserver

EmbeddedSystemNews.Com -- Many IoT enthusiastics is currently spotting their eyes on this new small board, the ESP8266 Wifi to UART module. ESP8266 module takes care TCP/IP stacks, 2.4Ghz radios+antena. It has serial interfacing port (SPI, UART) to connect to external microcontroller, and it also has some GPIO pins. So what makes this module so interesting? Is TI's CC3000 which has similar features not good enough? The short answer is the ESP8266 module is much cheaper compared to any other existing similar modules available in market today. You can get it at about $3 to $4 from sellers in Aliexpress.com. Moreover, some of the sellers there offer freeshipping. The ESP8266 chip (the component) itself only cost $2, incase you want to make your own board. Because of its low pricing, ESP8266 module is suitable for IoT applications. Imagine what cost it will be to build 50 pcs of Wifi-networked IoT devices? I am sure many-many designers have been waiting too long for cheap Wifi module. Now here it comes.
