just found a cortex m3 wifi SOM for 2$

Post by inaba_nl » Sun Jul 16, 2017 9:12 pm

i was wondering if i should post it here, but i basically found a stamp sized cortex m3 running at 80mhz (or higher by overclocking) with 512k ram, 1024k flash, onboard wifi for 2$ (stamp module only, for custom pcb's), or $3,50 (including breadboard adapter, assembled).
for a uart programmer you'd pay 2$

actually, the module is a bit smaller than a post stamp

it includes arduino IDE support too

now is my question to you all: is it worth it to compare this to a blue or red pill board (i know it doesn't have as agood support as those red/blue pill boards)?

and am i allowed to link to the product on here?

Searching for "cortex m3 80 mhz 512k ram 1024k flash wifi board" you found this topic.

Maybe he is talking about RTL8710 boards
https://www.seeedstudio.com/RTL8710-WiF ... -2793.html
but it is faster, 160MHz
RTL8710 easy programming by Arduino IDE

I looked on eBay and they cost $4.50 Australian dollars, but ESP8266 is less than $3 and EPS32 only costs $6

Apart from it being ARM core, rather than MIPS ( Xtensis) core, I don't see the point in using this device, when there are cheaper tried and tested alternatives
