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 6.1.0-beta.1

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

Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

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. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.

Past Releases

All previous releases are listed on GitHub, with release notes, and are available for download from Amazon S3. They are handy for testing, but otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release. Some older GitHub release pages include the same binaries for downloading. But we have discontinued including binaries as assets on newer release pages because of the large number of files for each release.
