This is a breadboard adapter for the popular ESP-01 model of the ESP8266 serial-to-WiFi transceiver module.
ESP8266 is an inexpensive serial-to-wifi tranceiver chip that can be used to connect any microcontroller with a serial port to a WiFi network. Because of its simplicity and low cost, it is getting popular among hobbyists for building Internet of Things (IoT) applications. While there are varieties of breakout boards available for ESP8266 from the Chinese markets, the most popular one is the ESP-01 model that provides access to the power supply and I/O pins through a 2x4 male header. Drawbacks of this module are that the pin arrangements are not breadboard friendly and are not labeled, which makes it little inconvenient for rapid prototyping. So, I designed this breadboard adapter to make prototyping with the ESP-01 module easier. The adapter has a 2x4 female header to receive the ESP-01 module and provides easy access to those pins through two single row male headers (with clear pin names printed next to them) that are breadboard friendly. An additional power supply filter capacitor of 10uF is also provided on board.
You will receive a breadboard adapter PCB, a 10uF tantalum capacitor and a 2x4 female header presoldered on the board. Two 1x4 male headers are also included but not soldered so as to give flexibility to the users to use a different type header if they want.
