ESP32-S3 Box Lite
The ESP-BOX is a new generation AIoT development platform released by Espressif Systems. The ESP32-S3-BOX is an AIoT development board that is based on Espressif’s ESP32-S3 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 (LE) SoC. The ESP32-S3-BOX provides a platform for developing the control of home appliances using Voice Assistance + touch screen controller, sensor, infrared controller, and intelligent Wi-Fi gateway.
- Does not include the dock that serves as a stand for your device.
- Comes with 3 mechanical buttons instead of software buttons
- Does not support AEC or waking during speak/music playback
The ESP32-S3-BOX Lite comes with pre-built firmware that supports offline voice interaction, with the SDKs and examples provided by Espressif, you will be able to develop a wide variety of AIoT applications based on the ESP32-S3-BOX Lite such as online and offline voice assistants, voice-enabled devices, HMI touch-screen devices, control panels, multi-protocol gateways easily.
ESP-BOX Lite features:
- Supports far-field voice interaction with 2 mics
- Offline voice wake-up with high wake-up rate
- Offline speech commands recognition in Chinese and English languages with high recognition rate
- Reconfigurable voice commands in Chinese and English languages
- Flexible and reusable GUI framework
- End-to-end IoT development framework ESP-RainMaker
Pmod™ compatible headers support expand peripheral modules

- For voice control and customization, please refer to the Voice Assistance Control and Customization
- For controlling the device by graphical user interface, please refer to the GUI Guide
- For more details of ESP32-S3-BOX hardware, Please refer to ESP32-S3-BOX hardware overview
- For the latest version firmware, Please refer to the ESP32-S3-BOX firmware update
Important Note: We recommend updating the ESP32-S3-BOX firmware when you first receive the kit to have the latest features and bugfix. Current firmware support is though ESP-IDF (not Arduino yet)

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the ESP32-S3 Box Lite.
Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.
Built-in modules available: _asyncio, _bleio, adafruit_bus_device, adafruit_pixelbuf, aesio, alarm, analogio, array, atexit, audiobusio, audiocore, audiomixer, binascii, bitbangio, bitmaptools, board, builtins, busio, canio, collections, coproc, countio, digitalio, displayio, dotenv, dualbank, errno, fontio, framebufferio, frequencyio, getpass, gifio, hashlib, i2ctarget, ipaddress, json, keypad, math, mdns, microcontroller, msgpack, neopixel_write, nvm, onewireio, os, ps2io, pulseio, pwmio, qrio, rainbowio, random, re, rgbmatrix, rotaryio, rtc, sdcardio, select, sharpdisplay, socketpool, ssl, storage, struct, supervisor, synthio, sys, terminalio, time, touchio, traceback, ulab, usb_cdc, usb_hid, usb_midi, vectorio, watchdog, wifi, zlib
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.
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.
