This is a board to help you program your ESP8266 Board. Simply plug in your ESP8266 device; Plug in your USB to UART converter; Finally set the jumper to ground IO0 and press the reset button.
I made this because of the issue of programming the ESP8266 board. You have to ground down pin IO0, pull the enable pin high, and then ground, temporarily, the reset pin so that the unit goes into programming mode. This is a lot of wiring on a bread board and if you cross things up you can short out the board OH NOOO!! Thus, I came up with a simple board that is configured just for programming where it makes this an easy and painless process to perform.
This device does not need to be powered it is simply passive. It keeps you from crossing wires and causing damage to the very sensitive ESP8266 device. It makes programming multiple devices, in case of Home Automation, a complete pain free experience.
1.) Insert your ESP8266 into the programmer as show in the images 3.) Set the jumper between pin IO0 and GND 4.) Connect a 3.3V (VERY IMPORTANT IT IS 3.3V) USB to UART Cable / Converter 5.) Once powered press the Reset Button on the board 6.) Your device is ready for programming
