Our Campaign is Now Live on Crowd Supply!

We are proud to announce that our Espoir campaign is now live and available for pre-order. We have been working hard to bring you our best quality PoE dev platform that is highly adaptable and rugged for a variety of applications. Our mikroBUS™ socket and Pmod™ compatible mikroShield add compatibility with an additional extensive set of 1300+ add-on boards.

Since the announcement of our pre-launch page on Crowd Supply, we’ve been refining the final details in our design, the production process, and securing components to ensure a swift production timeline. With these steps completed, our Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, PoE+, mikroBUS™-compatible and protoboard-friendly microcontroller board is confirmed to be complete and available for sale.

We’ve worked hard to ensure that our documentation is highly accessible, and Espoir is officially OSHWA certified! Our OSHWA Certification guarantees the security and flexibility that comes with having access to schematics, layout and gerber files. We have also implemented support for quite a few of your favorite programming and control frameworks. Espoir officially supports ESP-IDF, Arduino-ESP32, MicroPython, and Tasmota for IoT applications, and all documentation is available on our official Wiki page.

Head to our Crowd Supply page now and order yours today! Also, don’t forget to check out our mikroShield add-on boards! They come with our OSHWA certified documentation to help get you started on your next project.
