Re: A better ESP-32 multasking example

Andreas Spiess has released a great video about using the 2 cores of ESP32. It is here: https://youtu.be/k_D_Qu0cgu8
The ESP32 is really a very powerfull device for the price. Even without Wifi/Bluetooth capabilities is a very cost effective chip.

Re: Andy's Postbag and random ebay links

This cheap Power Bank case is working well, but if you want something more check the TOMO M2/M3/M4 Power Bank cases, they are very capable devices.

Re: ESP32 board with almost BluePill factor

not visible on aliexpress with simple search srp I bought it from bsfrance.fr because of fast delivery in EU, (paying something more...) but now is not listed in their site. It seems that this board did not gain popularity and only some sellers in Ebay are still selling it (search ESPio32 in ebay)....

Re: ESP32 board with almost BluePill factor

There is also another board with slim factor, the ESPio32. It is not very common but you can find it on ebay for about 12$, still more expensive than other boards (like DoIT for example). I bought it some months ago and is OK, but it has some problems with autoreset function, most of time does not w...

When you say it isn't toy .. what makes it not a toy?
The price, I think.... I totally agree with you about the pricing policy of JLink.
I am also using BMP with Eclipse and gdb and it is OK.

Re: ST-Link Vs Jlink

Original JLink is not a toy... costs about 300$ for basic version and 500$ for Plus, it is unfair to compare it with the ST-Link. Actually ST-Link is an ISP interface with some debugging abilities and JLink is a professional JTAG.

Re: ST-Link Vs Jlink

Personally, I found BMP more convenient than others. I like also the embedded usb to serial interface. For professional use, specially for debugging, I think that JLink is the way to go, as it is the industry standard and is officially supported (eg. Eclipse, ARM plugin, etc...). For hobby use, and ...

Re: ST-Link Vs Jlink

and the Black Magic Probe.... (aka BMP) Is another type of SWD adaptor but... - It is open-source/open hardware. - Includes debugging functionality as gdb server ( replaces stlink+ocd ) - Includes an UART interface - Supports non STM chips. Actually you can transform to BMP any STM32F103 board with ...
