Introducing ESP32-C6-Bug, a compact yet powerful development board based on the latest Esp32-C6FH4 RISC-V MCU from the ESP32 family. It supports multiple wireless protocols, boasts low power consumption, includes battery support, and is ideal for a wide range of applications.
Supported wireless protocols encompass Wi-Fi 6, BLE 5, Thread, and Zigbee. With its introduction of WiFi-6, which brings new features and optimized energy consumption, the Esp32-C6-Bug empowers the creation of multi-protocol, low-power devices using the Esp32-C6FH4 chip. This compact board neatly fits on a breadboard and features castellated holes for easy integration into other products. Other noteworthy features include an integrated 32.768 kHz RTC oscillator and power consumption as low as 20uA in sleep mode. Esp32-C6-Bug can be programmed using both the Arduino framework and Esp-IDF, with links to examples readily available.
Esp32-C6-Bug excels in scenarios where low-power functionality or multi-protocol features are required. It’s well-suited for building multi-protocol devices, wearable electronics, protocol bridges, and smart home devices, among other applications.
Thread to Wi-Fi Bridge: An excellent Espressif example enables access to devices on the Thread network via Wi-Fi using just one Esp32-C6-Bug board. Detailed testing and descriptions can be found in the Esp32-C6-Bug datasheet.
Zigbee Light Bulbs/Switches: Another outstanding example by Espressif allows the creation of simple Zigbee devices like light bulbs and switches. This example has been thoroughly tested and described in detail in the Esp32-C6-Bug datasheet.
Zigbee sleepy device: This example uses the Esp32-C6-Bug sleep modes together with Zigbee protocol, which allows battery powered low-power devices with Zigbee connectivity and power consumption as low as 60uA when in sleep mode. For more details refer to the Esp32-C6-Bug datasheet.
Multi-Protocol USB Dongle (Similar to Home Assistant SkyConnect): The native USB and support for multiple wireless protocols in Esp32-C6-Bug provide the potential to create a USB dongle, granting users access to Wi-Fi/Ble/Thread/Zigbee networks.
Ethernet Multi-Protocol Bridge: Another possible addition to the wireless functionality is Ethernet. While Esp32-C6 doesn’t have native Ethernet RMII, it does support popular Ethernet chips like W5500 via SPI.
Esp32-C6-Bug Smart Home Devices: Some developers are already experimenting with Esp32-C6 support in ESPHome, opening up possibilities for smart home devices.
Small Battery-Powered Devices: Applications like fitness trackers, motion capture systems, BLE speakers, or virtual reality controllers (with a BLE demo provided in the Esp32-C6-Bug datasheet) can benefit from the built-in battery charge/protection support and low-power features of the Esp32-C6FH4 chip.
