Bast Wifi

by Electronic Cats

Image of Board

The Bast WiFi includes the newer ESP32-S2 module, which is like a little brother to the ESP32 where only one core instead of 2 has cores, it has no BLE implemented, but gains a native USB, a new processor and crypto accelerators for better performance protection against physical fault injection attacks and more improvements over the SoC.

Please note that the ESP32-S2 is still intended for developers. Not all peripherals are fully documented with sample code on Arduino and there are still some bugs that can be found that have yet to be fixed. We know that it is not entirely pleasant but we hope you understand us.

Some elements are still in development; For this reason, we recommend this board to manufacturers who have some experience in microcontroller programming, and not as a first development board.

CircuitPython 9.1.0-beta.3

This is the latest development release of CircuitPython that will work with the Bast Wifi.

Alpha development releases are early releases. They are unfinished, are likely to have bugs, and the features they provide may change. Beta releases may have some bugs and unfinished features, but should be suitable for many uses. A Release Candidate (rc) release is considered done and will become the next stable release, assuming no further issues are found.

Please try alpha, beta, and rc releases if you are able. Your testing is invaluable: it helps us uncover and find issues quickly.

Absolute Newest

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for each board and language. The binaries are stored on Amazon S3, organized by board, and then by language. These releases are even newer than the development release listed above. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.

Previous Versions of CircuitPython

All previous releases of CircuitPython are available for download from Amazon S3 through the button below. For very old releases, look in the OLD/ folder for each board. Release notes for each release are available at GitHub button below.

Older releases are useful for testing if you something appears to be broken in a newer release but used to work, or if you have older code that depends on features only available in an older release. Otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release.
