Image of Board

ESP32-S3-LCD-EV-Board is an ESP32-S3-based development board with a touchscreen. Together with different subboards, ESP32-S3-LCD-EV-Board can drive LCDs with IIC, SPI, 8080, and RGB interfaces. It houses dual array microphones, supports voice recognition and near/far-field voice wake-up, and features screen and voice interaction. The board caters to development needs for touchscreen products with different resolutions and interfaces. Currently, we have two boards available: ESP32-S3-LCD-EV-Board with 480x480 LCD and ESP32-S3-LCD-EV-Board-2 with 800x480 LCD.

Feature List

The main features of the board are listed below:

  • Module Embedded: ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 module with 16 MB flash and 8 MB PSRAM
  • Display: Compatibility with various subboards and support for displays with RGB, 8080, SPI, and I2C interfaces. Please refer to LCD Subboards for more information
  • Audio: Audio Codec + ADC amplifier and dual microphones
  • USB: USB to serial port chip plus USB Type-C download/debug


ESP32-S3-LCD-EV-Board-MB is the core of the kit, which integrates the ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 module and provides ports for connection to the LCD subboard.

CircuitPython 9.0.0-alpha.5

This is the latest development release of CircuitPython that will work with the ESP32-S3 LCD Evaluation Kit.

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.
