Designed for use in Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, and wearable electronics applications, the wireless ESP8266 chip provides extremely low-power consumption and occupies minimal PCB area. The minimal wake up time feature can be utilized by mobile device SOCs which allows them to remain in low-power standby mode until WiFi is needed.
With a 32-bit low power micro-controller (MCU), the EXP8266 is often integrated with external sensors and other application-specific devices through its 17 GPIOs. It can host an application or offload 802.11 WiFi networking functions from another application processor.
