ESP32-PICO-KIT V4 is a mini development board produced by Espressif. At the core of this board is the ESP32-PICO-D4, a System-in-Package (SIP) module with complete Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionalities. Comparing to other ESP32 chips, the ESP32-PICO-D4 integrates several peripheral components in one single package, that otherwise would need to be installed separately. This includes a 40 MHz crystal oscillator, 4 MB flash, filter capacitors and RF matching links in. This greatly reduces quantity and costs of additional components, subsequent assembly and testing cost, as well as overall product complexity.
The development board integrates a USB-UART Bridge circuit, allowing the developers to connect the board to a PC’s USB port for downloads and debugging.
For easy interfacing, all the IO signals and system power on ESP32-PICO-D4 are led out through two rows of 20 x 0.1” pitch header pads on both sides of the development board. To make the ESP32-PICO-KIT V4 fit into mini breadboards, the header pads are populated with two rows of 17 pin headers. Remaining 2 x 3 pads grouped on each side of the board besides the antenna are not populated. The remaining 2 x 3 pin headers may be soldered later by the user.
