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.

The Lite version is a little different than the non-Lite:

  • 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

Full differences are documented here.** If you want the original S3-Box, check out this version.

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:

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)

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.
