Why do we need it?
- ESP8266 is very sensitive to intermittent connections, and the solder-less breadboard is not recommended. Loose connections on breadboard may cause module resets.
- ESP8266 is very sensitive to improper power supply. The average current for the ESP8266 is approximately 100mA; however when transmitting data it can peak at 300mA. Some TTL UART Serial Converts can’t handle peak current and may cause module reset. Here we are using a pair of decoupling capacitor that will minimise reset inducing voltage fluctuations.
- Easy and quick alternative to Flash and Program ESP8266 Module without worrying about wrong or loose connections.
- Easy access to GPIO Pins and Reset Button.
