Project Configuration

[中文]

Introduction

The esp-idf-kconfig package that ESP-IDF uses is based on kconfiglib, which is a Python extension to the Kconfig system. Kconfig provides a compile-time project configuration mechanism and offers configuration options of several types (e.g., integers, strings, and boolens). Kconfig files specify dependencies between options, default values of options, the way options are grouped together, etc.

For the full list of available features, please see Kconfig and kconfiglib extentions.

Project Configuration Menu

Application developers can open a terminal-based project configuration menu with the idf.py menuconfig build target.

After being updated, this configuration is saved in the sdkconfig file under the project root directory. Based on sdkconfig, application build targets will generate the sdkconfig.h file under the build directory, and will make the sdkconfig options available to the project build system and source files.

Using sdkconfig.defaults

In some cases, for example, when the sdkconfig file is under revision control, it may be inconvenient for the build system to change the sdkconfig file. The build system offers a solution to prevent it from happening, which is to create the sdkconfig.defaults file. This file is never touched by the build system, and can be created manually or automatically. It contains all the options which matter to the given application and are different from the default ones. The format is the same as that of the sdkconfig file. sdkconfig.defaults can be created manually when one remembers all the changed configuration, or it can be generated automatically by running the idf.py save-defconfig command.

Once sdkconfig.defaults is created, sdkconfig can be deleted or added to the ignore list of the revision control system (e.g., the .gitignore file for git). Project build targets will automatically create the sdkconfig file, populate it with the settings from the sdkconfig.defaults file, and configure the rest of the settings to their default values. Note that during the build process, settings from sdkconfig.defaults will not override those already in sdkconfig. For more information, see Custom Sdkconfig Defaults.

Kconfig Format Rules

Format rules for Kconfig files are as follows:

  • Option names in any menus should have consistent prefixes. The prefix currently should have at least 3 characters.

  • The unit of indentation should be 4 spaces. All sub-items belonging to a parent item are indented by one level deeper. For example, menu is indented by 0 spaces, config menu by 4 spaces, help in config by 8 spaces, and the text under help by 12 spaces.

  • No trailing spaces are allowed at the end of the lines.

  • The maximum length of options is 40 characters.

  • The maximum length of lines is 120 characters.

Note

The help section of each config in the menu is treated as reStructuredText to generate the reference documentation for each option.

Format Checker

kconfcheck tool in esp-idf-kconfig package is provided for checking Kconfig files against the above format rules. The checker checks all Kconfig and Kconfig.projbuild files given as arguments, and generates a new file with suffix .new with some suggestions about how to fix issues (if there are any). Please note that the checker cannot correct all format issues and the responsibility of the developer is to final check and make corrections in order to pass the tests. For example, indentations will be corrected if there is not any misleading formatting, but it cannot come up with a common prefix for options inside a menu.

The esp-idf-kconfig package is available in ESP-IDF environments, where the checker tool can be invoked by running command python -m kconfcheck <path_to_kconfig_file>.

For more information, please refer to esp-idf-kconfig package documentation.

Backward Compatibility of Kconfig Options

The standard Kconfig tools ignore unknown options in sdkconfig. So if a developer has custom settings for options which are renamed in newer ESP-IDF releases, then the given setting for the option would be silently ignored. Therefore, several features have been adopted to avoid this:

  1. kconfgen is used by the tool chain to pre-process sdkconfig files before anything else. For example, menuconfig would read them, so the settings for old options is kept and not ignored.

  2. kconfgen recursively finds all sdkconfig.rename files in ESP-IDF directory which contain old and new Kconfig option names. Old options are replaced by new ones in the sdkconfig file. Renames that should only appear for a single target can be placed in a target-specific rename file sdkconfig.rename.TARGET, where TARGET is the target name, e.g., sdkconfig.rename.esp32s2.

  3. kconfgen post-processes sdkconfig files and generates all build outputs (sdkconfig.h, sdkconfig.cmake, and auto.conf) by adding a list of compatibility statements, i.e., the values of old options are set for new options after modification. If users still use old options in their code, this will prevent it from breaking.

  4. Deprecated options and their replacements are automatically generated by kconfgen.

Configuration Options Reference

Subsequent sections contain the list of available ESP-IDF options automatically generated from Kconfig files. Note that due to dependencies between options, some options listed here may not be visible by default in menuconfig.

By convention, all option names are upper-case letters with underscores. When Kconfig generates sdkconfig and sdkconfig.h files, option names are prefixed with CONFIG_. So if an option ENABLE_FOO is defined in a Kconfig file and selected in menuconfig, then the sdkconfig and sdkconfig.h files will have CONFIG_ENABLE_FOO defined. In the following sections, option names are also prefixed with CONFIG_, same as in the source code.

Build type

Contains:

CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE

Application build type

Found in: Build type

Select the way the application is built.

By default, the application is built as a binary file in a format compatible with the ESP-IDF bootloader. In addition to this application, 2nd stage bootloader is also built. Application and bootloader binaries can be written into flash and loaded/executed from there.

Another option, useful for only very small and limited applications, is to only link the .elf file of the application, such that it can be loaded directly into RAM over JTAG or UART. Note that since IRAM and DRAM sizes are very limited, it is not possible to build any complex application this way. However for some kinds of testing and debugging, this option may provide faster iterations, since the application does not need to be written into flash.

Note: when APP_BUILD_TYPE_RAM is selected and loaded with JTAG, ESP-IDF does not contain all the startup code required to initialize the CPUs and ROM memory (data/bss). Therefore it is necessary to execute a bit of ROM code prior to executing the application. A gdbinit file may look as follows (for ESP32):

# Connect to a running instance of OpenOCD target remote :3333 # Reset and halt the target mon reset halt # Run to a specific point in ROM code, # where most of initialization is complete. thb *0x40007d54 c # Load the application into RAM load # Run till app_main tb app_main c

Execute this gdbinit file as follows:

xtensa-esp32-elf-gdb build/app-name.elf -x gdbinit

Example gdbinit files for other targets can be found in tools/test_apps/system/gdb_loadable_elf/

When loading the BIN with UART, the ROM will jump to ram and run the app after finishing the ROM startup code, so there's no additional startup initialization required. You can use the load_ram in esptool.py to load the generated .bin file into ram and execute.

Example:

esptool.py --chip {chip} -p {port} -b {baud} --no-stub load_ram {app.bin}

Recommended sdkconfig.defaults for building loadable ELF files is as follows. CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_RAM is required, other options help reduce application memory footprint.

CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_RAM=y CONFIG_VFS_SUPPORT_TERMIOS= CONFIG_NEWLIB_NANO_FORMAT=y CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_HALT=y CONFIG_ESP_DEBUG_STUBS_ENABLE= CONFIG_ESP_ERR_TO_NAME_LOOKUP=

Available options:

  • Default (binary application + 2nd stage bootloader) (CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_APP_2NDBOOT)

  • Build app runs entirely in RAM (EXPERIMENTAL) (CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_RAM)

CONFIG_APP_BUILD_TYPE_PURE_RAM_APP

Build app without SPI_FLASH/PSRAM support (saves ram)

Found in: Build type

If this option is enabled, external memory and related peripherals, such as Cache, MMU, Flash and PSRAM, won't be initialized. Corresponding drivers won't be introduced either. Components that depend on the spi_flash component will also be unavailable, such as app_update, etc. When this option is enabled, about 26KB of RAM space can be saved.

CONFIG_APP_REPRODUCIBLE_BUILD

Enable reproducible build

Found in: Build type

If enabled, all date, time, and path information would be eliminated. A .gdbinit file would be create automatically. (or will be append if you have one already)

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_NO_BLOBS

No Binary Blobs

Found in: Build type

If enabled, this disables the linking of binary libraries in the application build. Note that after enabling this Wi-Fi/Bluetooth will not work.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Bootloader config

Contains:

Bootloader manager

Contains:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_COMPILE_TIME_DATE

Use time/date stamp for bootloader

Found in: Bootloader config > Bootloader manager

If set, then the bootloader will be built with the current time/date stamp. It is stored in the bootloader description structure. If not set, time/date stamp will be excluded from bootloader image. This can be useful for getting the same binary image files made from the same source, but at different times.

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_PROJECT_VER

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FLASH_XMC_SUPPORT

Enable the support for flash chips of XMC (READ DOCS FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config > Serial Flash Configurations

Perform the startup flow recommended by XMC. Please consult XMC for the details of this flow. XMC chips will be forbidden to be used, when this option is disabled.

DON'T DISABLE THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

comment "Features below require specific hardware (READ DOCS FIRST!)"

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST

VDDSDIO LDO voltage

Found in: Bootloader config

If this option is enabled, and VDDSDIO LDO is set to 1.8V (using eFuse or MTDI bootstrapping pin), bootloader will change LDO settings to output 1.9V instead. This helps prevent flash chip from browning out during flash programming operations.

This option has no effect if VDDSDIO is set to 3.3V, or if the internal VDDSDIO regulator is disabled via eFuse.

Available options:

  • 1.8V (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST_1_8V)

  • 1.9V (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_VDDSDIO_BOOST_1_9V)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

GPIO triggers factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config

Allows to reset the device to factory settings: - clear one or more data partitions; - boot from "factory" partition. The factory reset will occur if there is a GPIO input held at the configured level while device starts up. See settings below.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_NUM_PIN_FACTORY_RESET

Number of the GPIO input for factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

The selected GPIO will be configured as an input with internal pull-up enabled (note that on some SoCs. not all pins have an internal pull-up, consult the hardware datasheet for details.) To trigger a factory reset, this GPIO must be held high or low (as configured) on startup.

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_LEVEL

Factory reset GPIO level

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

Pin level for factory reset, can be triggered on low or high.

Available options:

  • Reset on GPIO low (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_LOW)

  • Reset on GPIO high (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET_PIN_HIGH)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_OTA_DATA_ERASE

Clear OTA data on factory reset (select factory partition)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

The device will boot from "factory" partition (or OTA slot 0 if no factory partition is present) after a factory reset.

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_DATA_FACTORY_RESET

Comma-separated names of partitions to clear on factory reset

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_FACTORY_RESET

Allows customers to select which data partitions will be erased while factory reset.

Specify the names of partitions as a comma-delimited with optional spaces for readability. (Like this: "nvs, phy_init, ...") Make sure that the name specified in the partition table and here are the same. Partitions of type "app" cannot be specified here.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST

GPIO triggers boot from test app partition

Found in: Bootloader config

Allows to run the test app from "TEST" partition. A boot from "test" partition will occur if there is a GPIO input pulled low while device starts up. See settings below.

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_NUM_PIN_APP_TEST

Number of the GPIO input to boot TEST partition

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST

The selected GPIO will be configured as an input with internal pull-up enabled. To trigger a test app, this GPIO must be pulled low on reset. After the GPIO input is deactivated and the device reboots, the old application will boot. (factory or OTA[x]). Note that GPIO34-39 do not have an internal pullup and an external one must be provided.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST_PIN_LEVEL

App test GPIO level

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST

Pin level for app test, can be triggered on low or high.

Available options:

  • Enter test app on GPIO low (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST_PIN_LOW)

  • Enter test app on GPIO high (CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_TEST_PIN_HIGH)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_HOLD_TIME_GPIO

Hold time of GPIO for reset/test mode (seconds)

Found in: Bootloader config

The GPIO must be held low continuously for this period of time after reset before a factory reset or test partition boot (as applicable) is performed.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_REGION_PROTECTION_ENABLE

Enable protection for unmapped memory regions

Found in: Bootloader config

Protects the unmapped memory regions of the entire address space from unintended accesses. This will ensure that an exception will be triggered whenever the CPU performs a memory operation on unmapped regions of the address space.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

Use RTC watchdog in start code

Found in: Bootloader config

Tracks the execution time of startup code. If the execution time is exceeded, the RTC_WDT will restart system. It is also useful to prevent a lock up in start code caused by an unstable power source. NOTE: Tracks the execution time starts from the bootloader code - re-set timeout, while selecting the source for slow_clk - and ends calling app_main. Re-set timeout is needed due to WDT uses a SLOW_CLK clock source. After changing a frequency slow_clk a time of WDT needs to re-set for new frequency. slow_clk depends on RTC_CLK_SRC (INTERNAL_RC or EXTERNAL_CRYSTAL).

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_DISABLE_IN_USER_CODE

Allows RTC watchdog disable in user code

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

If this option is set, the ESP-IDF app must explicitly reset, feed, or disable the rtc_wdt in the app's own code. If this option is not set (default), then rtc_wdt will be disabled by ESP-IDF before calling the app_main() function.

Use function rtc_wdt_feed() for resetting counter of rtc_wdt. Use function rtc_wdt_disable() for disabling rtc_wdt.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_TIME_MS

Timeout for RTC watchdog (ms)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE

Verify that this parameter is correct and more then the execution time. Pay attention to options such as reset to factory, trigger test partition and encryption on boot - these options can increase the execution time. Note: RTC_WDT will reset while encryption operations will be performed.

Range:
  • from 0 to 120000

Default value:
  • 9000

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE

Enable app rollback support

Found in: Bootloader config

After updating the app, the bootloader runs a new app with the "ESP_OTA_IMG_PENDING_VERIFY" state set. This state prevents the re-run of this app. After the first boot of the new app in the user code, the function should be called to confirm the operability of the app or vice versa about its non-operability. If the app is working, then it is marked as valid. Otherwise, it is marked as not valid and rolls back to the previous working app. A reboot is performed, and the app is booted before the software update. Note: If during the first boot a new app the power goes out or the WDT works, then roll back will happen. Rollback is possible only between the apps with the same security versions.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

Enable app anti-rollback support

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE

This option prevents rollback to previous firmware/application image with lower security version.

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_SECURE_VERSION

eFuse secure version of app

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

The secure version is the sequence number stored in the header of each firmware. The security version is set in the bootloader, version is recorded in the eFuse field as the number of set ones. The allocated number of bits in the efuse field for storing the security version is limited (see BOOTLOADER_APP_SEC_VER_SIZE_EFUSE_FIELD option).

Bootloader: When bootloader selects an app to boot, an app is selected that has a security version greater or equal that recorded in eFuse field. The app is booted with a higher (or equal) secure version.

The security version is worth increasing if in previous versions there is a significant vulnerability and their use is not acceptable.

Your partition table should has a scheme with ota_0 + ota_1 (without factory).

Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_SEC_VER_SIZE_EFUSE_FIELD

Size of the efuse secure version field

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

The size of the efuse secure version field. Its length is limited to 32 bits for ESP32 and 16 bits for ESP32-S2. This determines how many times the security version can be increased.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_EFUSE_SECURE_VERSION_EMULATE

Emulate operations with efuse secure version(only test)

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ROLLBACK_ENABLE > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_APP_ANTI_ROLLBACK

This option allows to emulate read/write operations with all eFuses and efuse secure version. It allows to test anti-rollback implemention without permanent write eFuse bits. There should be an entry in partition table with following details: emul_efuse, data, efuse, , 0x2000.

This option enables: EFUSE_VIRTUAL and EFUSE_VIRTUAL_KEEP_IN_FLASH.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_IN_DEEP_SLEEP

Skip image validation when exiting deep sleep

Found in: Bootloader config

This option disables the normal validation of an image coming out of deep sleep (checksums, SHA256, and signature). This is a trade-off between wakeup performance from deep sleep, and image integrity checks.

Only enable this if you know what you are doing. It should not be used in conjunction with using deep_sleep() entry and changing the active OTA partition as this would skip the validation upon first load of the new OTA partition.

It is possible to enable this option with Secure Boot if "allow insecure options" is enabled, however it's strongly recommended to NOT enable it as it may allow a Secure Boot bypass.

Default value:

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_ON_POWER_ON

Skip image validation from power on reset (READ HELP FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config

Some applications need to boot very quickly from power on. By default, the entire app binary is read from flash and verified which takes up a significant portion of the boot time.

Enabling this option will skip validation of the app when the SoC boots from power on. Note that in this case it's not possible for the bootloader to detect if an app image is corrupted in the flash, therefore it's not possible to safely fall back to a different app partition. Flash corruption of this kind is unlikely but can happen if there is a serious firmware bug or physical damage.

Following other reset types, the bootloader will still validate the app image. This increases the chances that flash corruption resulting in a crash can be detected following soft reset, and the bootloader will fall back to a valid app image. To increase the chances of successfully recovering from a flash corruption event, keep the option BOOTLOADER_WDT_ENABLE enabled and consider also enabling BOOTLOADER_WDT_DISABLE_IN_USER_CODE - then manually disable the RTC Watchdog once the app is running. In addition, enable both the Task and Interrupt watchdog timers with reset options set.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_SKIP_VALIDATE_ALWAYS

Skip image validation always (READ HELP FIRST)

Found in: Bootloader config

Selecting this option prevents the bootloader from ever validating the app image before booting it. Any flash corruption of the selected app partition will make the entire SoC unbootable.

Although flash corruption is a very rare case, it is not recommended to select this option. Consider selecting "Skip image validation from power on reset" instead. However, if boot time is the only important factor then it can be enabled.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC

Reserve RTC FAST memory for custom purposes

Found in: Bootloader config

This option allows the customer to place data in the RTC FAST memory, this area remains valid when rebooted, except for power loss. This memory is located at a fixed address and is available for both the bootloader and the application. (The application and bootoloader must be compiled with the same option). The RTC FAST memory has access only through PRO_CPU.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC_SIZE

Size in bytes for custom purposes

Found in: Bootloader config > CONFIG_BOOTLOADER_CUSTOM_RESERVE_RTC

This option reserves in RTC FAST memory the area for custom purposes. If you want to create your own bootloader and save more information in this area of memory, you can increase it. It must be a multiple of 4 bytes. This area (rtc_retain_mem_t) is reserved and has access from the bootloader and an application.

Default value:

Security features

Contains:

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_NO_SECURE_BOOT

Require signed app images

Found in: Security features

Require apps to be signed to verify their integrity.

This option uses the same app signature scheme as hardware secure boot, but unlike hardware secure boot it does not prevent the bootloader from being physically updated. This means that the device can be secured against remote network access, but not physical access. Compared to using hardware Secure Boot this option is much simpler to implement.

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_SCHEME

App Signing Scheme

Found in: Security features

Select the Secure App signing scheme. Depends on the Chip Revision. There are two secure boot versions:

  1. Secure boot V1
    • Legacy custom secure boot scheme. Supported in ESP32 SoC.

  2. Secure boot V2
    • RSA based secure boot scheme. Supported in ESP32-ECO3 (ESP32 Chip Revision 3 onwards), ESP32-S2, ESP32-C3, ESP32-S3 SoCs.

    • ECDSA based secure boot scheme. Supported in ESP32-C2 SoC.

Available options:

  • ECDSA (CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_ECDSA_SCHEME)

    Embeds the ECDSA public key in the bootloader and signs the application with an ECDSA key. Refer to the documentation before enabling.

  • RSA (CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_RSA_SCHEME)

    Appends the RSA-3072 based Signature block to the application. Refer to <Secure Boot Version 2 documentation link> before enabling.

  • ECDSA (V2) (CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_APPS_ECDSA_V2_SCHEME)

    For Secure boot V2 (e.g., ESP32-C2 SoC), appends ECDSA based signature block to the application. Refer to documentation before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ECDSA_KEY_LEN_SIZE

ECDSA key size

Found in: Security features

Select the ECDSA key size. Two key sizes are supported

  • 192 bit key using NISTP192 curve

  • 256 bit key using NISTP256 curve (Recommended)

The advantage of using 256 bit key is the extra randomness which makes it difficult to be bruteforced compared to 192 bit key. At present, both key sizes are practically implausible to bruteforce.

Available options:

  • Using ECC curve NISTP192 (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ECDSA_KEY_LEN_192_BITS)

  • Using ECC curve NISTP256 (Recommended) (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ECDSA_KEY_LEN_256_BITS)

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_ON_BOOT_NO_SECURE_BOOT

Bootloader verifies app signatures

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, the bootloader will be compiled with code to verify that an app is signed before booting it.

If hardware secure boot is enabled, this option is always enabled and cannot be disabled. If hardware secure boot is not enabled, this option doesn't add significant security by itself so most users will want to leave it disabled.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_SIGNED_ON_UPDATE_NO_SECURE_BOOT

Verify app signature on update

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, any OTA updated apps will have the signature verified before being considered valid.

When enabled, the signature is automatically checked whenever the esp_ota_ops.h APIs are used for OTA updates, or esp_image_format.h APIs are used to verify apps.

If hardware secure boot is enabled, this option is always enabled and cannot be disabled. If hardware secure boot is not enabled, this option still adds significant security against network-based attackers by preventing spoofing of OTA updates.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT

Enable hardware Secure Boot in bootloader (READ DOCS FIRST)

Found in: Security features

Build a bootloader which enables Secure Boot on first boot.

Once enabled, Secure Boot will not boot a modified bootloader. The bootloader will only load a partition table or boot an app if the data has a verified digital signature. There are implications for reflashing updated apps once secure boot is enabled.

When enabling secure boot, JTAG and ROM BASIC Interpreter are permanently disabled by default.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_VERSION

Select secure boot version

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT

Select the Secure Boot Version. Depends on the Chip Revision. Secure Boot V2 is the new RSA / ECDSA based secure boot scheme.

  • RSA based scheme is supported in ESP32 (Revision 3 onwards), ESP32-S2, ESP32-C3 (ECO3), ESP32-S3.

  • ECDSA based scheme is supported in ESP32-C2 SoC.

Please note that, RSA or ECDSA secure boot is property of specific SoC based on its HW design, supported crypto accelerators, die-size, cost and similar parameters. Please note that RSA scheme has requirement for bigger key sizes but at the same time it is comparatively faster than ECDSA verification.

Secure Boot V1 is the AES based (custom) secure boot scheme supported in ESP32 SoC.

Available options:

  • Enable Secure Boot version 1 (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_V1_ENABLED)

    Build a bootloader which enables secure boot version 1 on first boot. Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for this version before enabling.

  • Enable Secure Boot version 2 (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_V2_ENABLED)

    Build a bootloader which enables Secure Boot version 2 on first boot. Refer to Secure Boot V2 section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for this version before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_MODE

Secure bootloader mode

Found in: Security features

Available options:

  • One-time flash (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_ONE_TIME_FLASH)

    On first boot, the bootloader will generate a key which is not readable externally or by software. A digest is generated from the bootloader image itself. This digest will be verified on each subsequent boot.

    Enabling this option means that the bootloader cannot be changed after the first time it is booted.

  • Reflashable (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_REFLASHABLE)

    Generate a reusable secure bootloader key, derived (via SHA-256) from the secure boot signing key.

    This allows the secure bootloader to be re-flashed by anyone with access to the secure boot signing key.

    This option is less secure than one-time flash, because a leak of the digest key from one device allows reflashing of any device that uses it.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_BUILD_SIGNED_BINARIES

Sign binaries during build

Found in: Security features

Once secure boot or signed app requirement is enabled, app images are required to be signed.

If enabled (default), these binary files are signed as part of the build process. The file named in "Secure boot private signing key" will be used to sign the image.

If disabled, unsigned app/partition data will be built. They must be signed manually using espsecure.py. Version 1 to enable ECDSA Based Secure Boot and Version 2 to enable RSA based Secure Boot. (for example, on a remote signing server.)

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_SIGNING_KEY

Secure boot private signing key

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_BUILD_SIGNED_BINARIES

Path to the key file used to sign app images.

Key file is an ECDSA private key (NIST256p curve) in PEM format for Secure Boot V1. Key file is an RSA private key in PEM format for Secure Boot V2.

Path is evaluated relative to the project directory.

You can generate a new signing key by running the following command: espsecure.py generate_signing_key secure_boot_signing_key.pem

See the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for this version for details.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_VERIFICATION_KEY

Secure boot public signature verification key

Found in: Security features

Path to a public key file used to verify signed images. Secure Boot V1: This ECDSA public key is compiled into the bootloader and/or app, to verify app images.

Key file is in raw binary format, and can be extracted from a PEM formatted private key using the espsecure.py extract_public_key command.

Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for this version before enabling.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ENABLE_AGGRESSIVE_KEY_REVOKE

Enable Aggressive key revoke strategy

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, ROM bootloader will revoke the public key digest burned in efuse block if it fails to verify the signature of software bootloader with it. Revocation of keys does not happen when enabling secure boot. Once secure boot is enabled, key revocation checks will be done on subsequent boot-up, while verifying the software bootloader

This feature provides a strong resistance against physical attacks on the device.

NOTE: Once a digest slot is revoked, it can never be used again to verify an image This can lead to permanent bricking of the device, in case all keys are revoked because of signature verification failure.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_FLASH_BOOTLOADER_DEFAULT

Flash bootloader along with other artifacts when using the default flash command

Found in: Security features

When Secure Boot V2 is enabled, by default the bootloader is not flashed along with other artifacts like the application and the partition table images, i.e. bootloader has to be seperately flashed using the command idf.py bootloader flash, whereas, the application and partition table can be flashed using the command idf.py flash itself. Enabling this option allows flashing the bootloader along with the other artifacts by invocation of the command idf.py flash.

If this option is enabled make sure that even the bootloader is signed using the correct secure boot key, otherwise the bootloader signature verification would fail, as hash of the public key which is present in the bootloader signature would not match with the digest stored into the efuses and thus the device will not be able to boot up.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_KEY_ENCODING

Hardware Key Encoding

Found in: Security features

In reflashable secure bootloader mode, a hardware key is derived from the signing key (with SHA-256) and can be written to eFuse with espefuse.py.

Normally this is a 256-bit key, but if 3/4 Coding Scheme is used on the device then the eFuse key is truncated to 192 bits.

This configuration item doesn't change any firmware code, it only changes the size of key binary which is generated at build time.

Available options:

  • No encoding (256 bit key) (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_KEY_ENCODING_256BIT)

  • 3/4 encoding (192 bit key) (CONFIG_SECURE_BOOTLOADER_KEY_ENCODING_192BIT)

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_INSECURE

Allow potentially insecure options

Found in: Security features

You can disable some of the default protections offered by secure boot, in order to enable testing or a custom combination of security features.

Only enable these options if you are very sure.

Refer to the Secure Boot section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for this version before enabling.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENC_ENABLED

Enable flash encryption on boot (READ DOCS FIRST)

Found in: Security features

If this option is set, flash contents will be encrypted by the bootloader on first boot.

Note: After first boot, the system will be permanently encrypted. Re-flashing an encrypted system is complicated and not always possible.

Read Flash Encryption before enabling.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_KEYSIZE

Size of generated XTS-AES key

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENC_ENABLED

Size of generated XTS-AES key.

  • AES-128 uses a 256-bit key (32 bytes) derived from 128 bits (16 bytes) burned in half Efuse key block. Internally, it calculates SHA256(128 bits)

  • AES-128 uses a 256-bit key (32 bytes) which occupies one Efuse key block.

  • AES-256 uses a 512-bit key (64 bytes) which occupies two Efuse key blocks.

This setting is ignored if either type of key is already burned to Efuse before the first boot. In this case, the pre-burned key is used and no new key is generated.

Available options:

  • AES-128 key derived from 128 bits (SHA256(128 bits)) (CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_AES128_DERIVED)

  • AES-128 (256-bit key) (CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_AES128)

  • AES-256 (512-bit key) (CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_AES256)

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE

Enable usage mode

Found in: Security features > CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENC_ENABLED

By default Development mode is enabled which allows ROM download mode to perform flash encryption operations (plaintext is sent to the device, and it encrypts it internally and writes ciphertext to flash.) This mode is not secure, it's possible for an attacker to write their own chosen plaintext to flash.

Release mode should always be selected for production or manufacturing. Once enabled it's no longer possible for the device in ROM Download Mode to use the flash encryption hardware.

When EFUSE_VIRTUAL is enabled, SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_RELEASE is not available. For CI tests we use IDF_CI_BUILD to bypass it ("export IDF_CI_BUILD=1"). We do not recommend bypassing it for other purposes.

Refer to the Flash Encryption section of the ESP-IDF Programmer's Guide for details.

Available options:

  • Development (NOT SECURE) (CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_DEVELOPMENT)

  • Release (CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_ENCRYPTION_MODE_RELEASE)

Potentially insecure options

Contains:

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_JTAG

Allow JTAG Debugging

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable JTAG (across entire chip) on first boot when either secure boot or flash encryption is enabled.

Setting this option leaves JTAG on for debugging, which negates all protections of flash encryption and some of the protections of secure boot.

Only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_SHORT_APP_PARTITION

Allow app partition length not 64KB aligned

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), app partition size must be a multiple of 64KB. App images are padded to 64KB length, and the bootloader checks any trailing bytes after the signature (before the next 64KB boundary) have not been written. This is because flash cache maps entire 64KB pages into the address space. This prevents an attacker from appending unverified data after the app image in the flash, causing it to be mapped into the address space.

Setting this option allows the app partition length to be unaligned, and disables padding of the app image to this length. It is generally not recommended to set this option, unless you have a legacy partitioning scheme which doesn't support 64KB aligned partition lengths.

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_V2_ALLOW_EFUSE_RD_DIS

Allow additional read protecting of efuses

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default, recommended), on first boot the bootloader will burn the WR_DIS_RD_DIS efuse when Secure Boot is enabled. This prevents any more efuses from being read protected.

If this option is set, it will remain possible to write the EFUSE_RD_DIS efuse field after Secure Boot is enabled. This may allow an attacker to read-protect the BLK2 efuse (for ESP32) and BLOCK4-BLOCK10 (i.e. BLOCK_KEY0-BLOCK_KEY5)(for other chips) holding the public key digest, causing an immediate denial of service and possibly allowing an additional fault injection attack to bypass the signature protection.

NOTE: Once a BLOCK is read-protected, the application will read all zeros from that block

NOTE: If "UART ROM download mode (Permanently disabled (recommended))" or "UART ROM download mode (Permanently switch to Secure mode (recommended))" is set, then it is __NOT__ possible to read/write efuses using espefuse.py utility. However, efuse can be read/written from the application

CONFIG_SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_UNUSED_DIGEST_SLOTS

Leave unused digest slots available (not revoke)

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), during startup in the app all unused digest slots will be revoked. To revoke unused slot will be called esp_efuse_set_digest_revoke(num_digest) for each digest. Revoking unused digest slots makes ensures that no trusted keys can be added later by an attacker. If set, it means that you have a plan to use unused digests slots later.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_ENC

Leave UART bootloader encryption enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable UART bootloader encryption access on first boot. If set, the UART bootloader will still be able to access hardware encryption.

It is recommended to only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_CACHE

Leave UART bootloader flash cache enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), the bootloader will permanently disable UART bootloader flash cache access on first boot. If set, the UART bootloader will still be able to access the flash cache.

Only set this option in testing environments.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_REQUIRE_ALREADY_ENABLED

Require flash encryption to be already enabled

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default), and flash encryption is not yet enabled in eFuses, the 2nd stage bootloader will enable flash encryption: generate the flash encryption key and program eFuses. If this option is set, and flash encryption is not yet enabled, the bootloader will error out and reboot. If flash encryption is enabled in eFuses, this option does not change the bootloader behavior.

Only use this option in testing environments, to avoid accidentally enabling flash encryption on the wrong device. The device needs to have flash encryption already enabled using espefuse.py.

Default value:
CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_SKIP_WRITE_PROTECTION_CACHE

Skip write-protection of DIS_CACHE (DIS_ICACHE, DIS_DCACHE)

Found in: Security features > Potentially insecure options

If not set (default, recommended), on the first boot the bootloader will burn the write-protection of DIS_CACHE(for ESP32) or DIS_ICACHE/DIS_DCACHE(for other chips) eFuse when Flash Encryption is enabled. Write protection for cache disable efuse prevents the chip from being blocked if it is set by accident. App and bootloader use cache so disabling it makes the chip useless for IDF. Due to other eFuses are linked with the same write protection bit (see the list below) then write-protection will not be done if these SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_ENC, SECURE_BOOT_ALLOW_JTAG or SECURE_FLASH_UART_BOOTLOADER_ALLOW_CACHE options are selected to give a chance to turn on the chip into the release mode later.

List of eFuses with the same write protection bit: ESP32: MAC, MAC_CRC, DISABLE_APP_CPU, DISABLE_BT, DIS_CACHE, VOL_LEVEL_HP_INV.

ESP32-C3: DIS_ICACHE, DIS_USB_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_ICACHE, DIS_USB_SERIAL_JTAG, DIS_FORCE_DOWNLOAD, DIS_TWAI, JTAG_SEL_ENABLE, DIS_PAD_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_MANUAL_ENCRYPT.

ESP32-C6: SWAP_UART_SDIO_EN, DIS_ICACHE, DIS_USB_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_ICACHE, DIS_USB_SERIAL_JTAG, DIS_FORCE_DOWNLOAD, DIS_TWAI, JTAG_SEL_ENABLE, DIS_PAD_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_MANUAL_ENCRYPT.

ESP32-H2: DIS_ICACHE, DIS_USB_JTAG, POWERGLITCH_EN, DIS_FORCE_DOWNLOAD, SPI_DOWNLOAD_MSPI_DIS, DIS_TWAI, JTAG_SEL_ENABLE, DIS_PAD_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_MANUAL_ENCRYPT.

ESP32-S3: DIS_ICACHE, DIS_DCACHE, DIS_DOWNLOAD_ICACHE, DIS_DOWNLOAD_DCACHE, DIS_FORCE_DOWNLOAD, DIS_USB_OTG, DIS_TWAI, DIS_APP_CPU, DIS_PAD_JTAG, DIS_DOWNLOAD_MANUAL_ENCRYPT, DIS_USB_JTAG, DIS_USB_SERIAL_JTAG, STRAP_JTAG_SEL, USB_PHY_SEL.

CONFIG_SECURE_FLASH_CHECK_ENC_EN_IN_APP

Check Flash Encryption enabled on app startup

Found in: Security features

If set (default), in an app during startup code, there is a check of the flash encryption eFuse bit is on (as the bootloader should already have set it). The app requires this bit is on to continue work otherwise abort.

If not set, the app does not care if the flash encryption eFuse bit is set or not.

Default value:

CONFIG_SECURE_UART_ROM_DL_MODE

UART ROM download mode

Found in: Security features

Available options:

  • UART ROM download mode (Permanently disabled (recommended)) (CONFIG_SECURE_DISABLE_ROM_DL_MODE)

    If set, during startup the app will burn an eFuse bit to permanently disable the UART ROM Download Mode. This prevents any future use of esptool.py, espefuse.py and similar tools.

    Once disabled, if the SoC is booted with strapping pins set for ROM Download Mode then an error is printed instead.

    It is recommended to enable this option in any production application where Flash Encryption and/or Secure Boot is enabled and access to Download Mode is not required.

    It is also possible to permanently disable Download Mode by calling esp_efuse_disable_rom_download_mode() at runtime.

  • UART ROM download mode (Permanently switch to Secure mode (recommended)) (CONFIG_SECURE_ENABLE_SECURE_ROM_DL_MODE)

    If set, during startup the app will burn an eFuse bit to permanently switch the UART ROM Download Mode into a separate Secure Download mode. This option can only work if Download Mode is not already disabled by eFuse.

    Secure Download mode limits the use of Download Mode functions to update SPI config, changing baud rate, basic flash write and a command to return a summary of currently enabled security features (get_security_info).

    Secure Download mode is not compatible with the esptool.py flasher stub feature, espefuse.py, read/writing memory or registers, encrypted download, or any other features that interact with unsupported Download Mode commands.

    Secure Download mode should be enabled in any application where Flash Encryption and/or Secure Boot is enabled. Disabling this option does not immediately cancel the benefits of the security features, but it increases the potential "attack surface" for an attacker to try and bypass them with a successful physical attack.

    It is also possible to enable secure download mode at runtime by calling esp_efuse_enable_rom_secure_download_mode()

    Note: Secure Download mode is not available for ESP32 (includes revisions till ECO3).

  • UART ROM download mode (Enabled (not recommended)) (CONFIG_SECURE_INSECURE_ALLOW_DL_MODE)

    This is a potentially insecure option. Enabling this option will allow the full UART download mode to stay enabled. This option SHOULD NOT BE ENABLED for production use cases.

Application manager

Contains:

CONFIG_APP_COMPILE_TIME_DATE

Use time/date stamp for app

Found in: Application manager

If set, then the app will be built with the current time/date stamp. It is stored in the app description structure. If not set, time/date stamp will be excluded from app image. This can be useful for getting the same binary image files made from the same source, but at different times.

CONFIG_APP_EXCLUDE_PROJECT_VER_VAR

Exclude PROJECT_VER from firmware image

Found in: Application manager

The PROJECT_VER variable from the build system will not affect the firmware image. This value will not be contained in the esp_app_desc structure.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_EXCLUDE_PROJECT_NAME_VAR

Exclude PROJECT_NAME from firmware image

Found in: Application manager

The PROJECT_NAME variable from the build system will not affect the firmware image. This value will not be contained in the esp_app_desc structure.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER_FROM_CONFIG

Get the project version from Kconfig

Found in: Application manager

If this is enabled, then config item APP_PROJECT_VER will be used for the variable PROJECT_VER. Other ways to set PROJECT_VER will be ignored.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER

Project version

Found in: Application manager > CONFIG_APP_PROJECT_VER_FROM_CONFIG

Project version

Default value:

CONFIG_APP_RETRIEVE_LEN_ELF_SHA

The length of APP ELF SHA is stored in RAM(chars)

Found in: Application manager

At startup, the app will read the embedded APP ELF SHA-256 hash value from flash and convert it into a string and store it in a RAM buffer. This ensures the panic handler and core dump will be able to print this string even when cache is disabled. The size of the buffer is APP_RETRIEVE_LEN_ELF_SHA plus the null terminator. Changing this value will change the size of this buffer, in bytes.

Range:
  • from 8 to 64

Default value:
  • 9

Boot ROM Behavior

Contains:

CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_SCHEME

Permanently change Boot ROM output

Found in: Boot ROM Behavior

Controls the Boot ROM log behavior. The rom log behavior can only be changed for once, specific eFuse bit(s) will be burned at app boot stage.

Available options:

  • Always Log (CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_ALWAYS_ON)

    Always print ROM logs, this is the default behavior.

  • Permanently disable logging (CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_ALWAYS_OFF)

    Don't print ROM logs.

  • Log on GPIO High (CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_ON_GPIO_HIGH)

    Print ROM logs when GPIO level is high during start up. The GPIO number is chip dependent, e.g. on ESP32-S2, the control GPIO is GPIO46.

  • Log on GPIO Low (CONFIG_BOOT_ROM_LOG_ON_GPIO_LOW)

    Print ROM logs when GPIO level is low during start up. The GPIO number is chip dependent, e.g. on ESP32-S2, the control GPIO is GPIO46.

Serial flasher config

  • 128 MB (CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_FLASHSIZE_128MB)

CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_HEADER_FLASHSIZE_UPDATE

Detect flash size when flashing bootloader

Found in: Serial flasher config

If this option is set, flashing the project will automatically detect the flash size of the target chip and update the bootloader image before it is flashed.

Enabling this option turns off the image protection against corruption by a SHA256 digest. Updating the bootloader image before flashing would invalidate the digest.

CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_BEFORE

Before flashing

Found in: Serial flasher config

Configure whether esptool.py should reset the ESP32 before flashing.

Automatic resetting depends on the RTS & DTR signals being wired from the serial port to the ESP32. Most USB development boards do this internally.

Available options:

  • Reset to bootloader (CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_BEFORE_RESET)

  • No reset (CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_BEFORE_NORESET)

CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_AFTER

After flashing

Found in: Serial flasher config

Configure whether esptool.py should reset the ESP32 after flashing.

Automatic resetting depends on the RTS & DTR signals being wired from the serial port to the ESP32. Most USB development boards do this internally.

Available options:

  • Reset after flashing (CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_AFTER_RESET)

  • Stay in bootloader (CONFIG_ESPTOOLPY_AFTER_NORESET)

Partition Table

Contains:

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_TYPE

Partition Table

Found in: Partition Table

The partition table to flash to the ESP32. The partition table determines where apps, data and other resources are expected to be found.

The predefined partition table CSV descriptions can be found in the components/partition_table directory. These are mostly intended for example and development use, it's expect that for production use you will copy one of these CSV files and create a custom partition CSV for your application.

Available options:

  • Single factory app, no OTA (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP)

    This is the default partition table, designed to fit into a 2MB or larger flash with a single 1MB app partition.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp.csv

    This partition table is not suitable for an app that needs OTA (over the air update) capability.

  • Single factory app (large), no OTA (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_LARGE)

    This is a variation of the default partition table, that expands the 1MB app partition size to 1.5MB to fit more code.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_large.csv

    This partition table is not suitable for an app that needs OTA (over the air update) capability.

  • Factory app, two OTA definitions (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_TWO_OTA)

    This is a basic OTA-enabled partition table with a factory app partition plus two OTA app partitions. All are 1MB, so this partition table requires 4MB or larger flash size.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_two_ota.csv

  • Custom partition table CSV (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_CUSTOM)

    Specify the path to the partition table CSV to use for your project.

    Consult the Partition Table section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

  • Single factory app, no OTA, encrypted NVS (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_ENCRYPTED_NVS)

    This is a variation of the default "Single factory app, no OTA" partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_encr_nvs.csv

  • Single factory app (large), no OTA, encrypted NVS (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_SINGLE_APP_LARGE_ENC_NVS)

    This is a variation of the "Single factory app (large), no OTA" partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_singleapp_large_encr_nvs.csv

  • Factory app, two OTA definitions, encrypted NVS (CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_TWO_OTA_ENCRYPTED_NVS)

    This is a variation of the "Factory app, two OTA definitions" partition table that supports encrypted NVS when using flash encryption. See the Flash Encryption section in the ESP-IDF Programmers Guide for more information.

    The corresponding CSV file in the IDF directory is components/partition_table/partitions_two_ota_encr_nvs.csv

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_CUSTOM_FILENAME

Custom partition CSV file

Found in: Partition Table

Name of the custom partition CSV filename. This path is evaluated relative to the project root directory.

Default value:
  • "partitions.csv"

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_OFFSET

Offset of partition table

Found in: Partition Table

The address of partition table (by default 0x8000). Allows you to move the partition table, it gives more space for the bootloader. Note that the bootloader and app will both need to be compiled with the same PARTITION_TABLE_OFFSET value.

This number should be a multiple of 0x1000.

Note that partition offsets in the partition table CSV file may need to be changed if this value is set to a higher value. To have each partition offset adapt to the configured partition table offset, leave all partition offsets blank in the CSV file.

Default value:
  • "0x8000"

CONFIG_PARTITION_TABLE_MD5

Generate an MD5 checksum for the partition table

Found in: Partition Table

Generate an MD5 checksum for the partition table for protecting the integrity of the table. The generation should be turned off for legacy bootloaders which cannot recognize the MD5 checksum in the partition table.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

Compiler options

Contains:

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION

Optimization Level

Found in: Compiler options

This option sets compiler optimization level (gcc -O argument) for the app.

  • The "Debug" setting will add the -0g flag to CFLAGS.

  • The "Size" setting will add the -0s flag to CFLAGS.

  • The "Performance" setting will add the -O2 flag to CFLAGS.

  • The "None" setting will add the -O0 flag to CFLAGS.

The "Size" setting cause the compiled code to be smaller and faster, but may lead to difficulties of correlating code addresses to source file lines when debugging.

The "Performance" setting causes the compiled code to be larger and faster, but will be easier to correlated code addresses to source file lines.

"None" with -O0 produces compiled code without optimization.

Note that custom optimization levels may be unsupported.

Compiler optimization for the IDF bootloader is set separately, see the BOOTLOADER_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION setting.

Available options:

  • Debug (-Og) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_DEBUG)

  • Optimize for size (-Os) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_SIZE)

  • Optimize for performance (-O2) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_PERF)

  • Debug without optimization (-O0) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_NONE)

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTION_LEVEL

Assertion level

Found in: Compiler options

Assertions can be:

  • Enabled. Failure will print verbose assertion details. This is the default.

  • Set to "silent" to save code size (failed assertions will abort() but user needs to use the aborting address to find the line number with the failed assertion.)

  • Disabled entirely (not recommended for most configurations.) -DNDEBUG is added to CPPFLAGS in this case.

Available options:

  • Enabled (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_ENABLE)

    Enable assertions. Assertion content and line number will be printed on failure.

  • Silent (saves code size) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_SILENT)

    Enable silent assertions. Failed assertions will abort(), user needs to use the aborting address to find the line number with the failed assertion.

  • Disabled (sets -DNDEBUG) (CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_ASSERTIONS_DISABLE)

    If assertions are disabled, -DNDEBUG is added to CPPFLAGS.

CONFIG_COMPILER_FLOAT_LIB_FROM

Compiler float lib source

Found in: Compiler options

In the soft-fp part of libgcc, riscv version is written in C, and handles all edge cases in IEEE754, which makes it larger and performance is slow.

RVfplib is an optimized RISC-V library for FP arithmetic on 32-bit integer processors, for single and double-precision FP. RVfplib is "fast", but it has a few exceptions from IEEE 754 compliance.

Available options:

  • libgcc (CONFIG_COMPILER_FLOAT_LIB_FROM_GCCLIB)

  • librvfp (CONFIG_COMPILER_FLOAT_LIB_FROM_RVFPLIB)

CONFIG_COMPILER_OPTIMIZATION_CHECKS_SILENT

Disable messages in ESP_RETURN_ON_* and ESP_EXIT_ON_* macros

Found in: Compiler options

If enabled, the error messages will be discarded in following check macros: - ESP_RETURN_ON_ERROR - ESP_EXIT_ON_ERROR - ESP_RETURN_ON_FALSE - ESP_EXIT_ON_FALSE

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_HIDE_PATHS_MACROS

Replace ESP-IDF and project paths in binaries

Found in: Compiler options

When expanding the __FILE__ and __BASE_FILE__ macros, replace paths inside ESP-IDF with paths relative to the placeholder string "IDF", and convert paths inside the project directory to relative paths.

This allows building the project with assertions or other code that embeds file paths, without the binary containing the exact path to the IDF or project directories.

CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS

Enable C++ exceptions

Found in: Compiler options

Enabling this option compiles all IDF C++ files with exception support enabled.

Disabling this option disables C++ exception support in all compiled files, and any libstdc++ code which throws an exception will abort instead.

Enabling this option currently adds an additional ~500 bytes of heap overhead when an exception is thrown in user code for the first time.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Contains:

CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS_EMG_POOL_SIZE

Emergency Pool Size

Found in: Compiler options > CONFIG_COMPILER_CXX_EXCEPTIONS

Found in: Compiler options

Enabling this option compiles all C++ files with RTTI support enabled. This increases binary size (typically by tens of kB) but allows using dynamic_cast conversion and typeid operator.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE

Stack smashing protection mode

Found in: Compiler options

Stack smashing protection mode. Emit extra code to check for buffer overflows, such as stack smashing attacks. This is done by adding a guard variable to functions with vulnerable objects. The guards are initialized when a function is entered and then checked when the function exits. If a guard check fails, program is halted. Protection has the following modes:

  • In NORMAL mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector) only functions that call alloca, and functions with buffers larger than 8 bytes are protected.

  • STRONG mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector-strong) is like NORMAL, but includes additional functions to be protected -- those that have local array definitions, or have references to local frame addresses.

  • In OVERALL mode (GCC flag: -fstack-protector-all) all functions are protected.

Modes have the following impact on code performance and coverage:

  • performance: NORMAL > STRONG > OVERALL

  • coverage: NORMAL < STRONG < OVERALL

The performance impact includes increasing the amount of stack memory required for each task.

Available options:

  • None (CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_NONE)

  • Normal (CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_NORM)

  • Strong (CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_STRONG)

  • Overall (CONFIG_COMPILER_STACK_CHECK_MODE_ALL)

CONFIG_COMPILER_WARN_WRITE_STRINGS

Enable -Wwrite-strings warning flag

Found in: Compiler options

Adds -Wwrite-strings flag for the C/C++ compilers.

For C, this gives string constants the type const char[] so that copying the address of one into a non-const char \* pointer produces a warning. This warning helps to find at compile time code that tries to write into a string constant.

For C++, this warns about the deprecated conversion from string literals to char \*.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_COMPILER_SAVE_RESTORE_LIBCALLS

Enable -msave-restore flag to reduce code size

Found in: Compiler options

Adds -msave-restore to C/C++ compilation flags.

  • Either internal or external memory based on default malloc() behavior in ESP-IDF

  • Internal IRAM memory wherever applicable else internal DRAM

Recommended mode here is always internal (*), since that is most preferred from security perspective. But if application requirement does not allow sufficient free internal memory then alternate mode can be selected.

(*) In case of ESP32-S2/ESP32-S3, hardware allows encryption of external SPIRAM contents provided hardware flash encryption feature is enabled. In that case, using external SPIRAM allocation strategy is also safe choice from security perspective.

Available options:

  • Internal DRAM (CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MEM_ALLOC_MODE_INTERNAL)

  • External SPIRAM (CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MEM_ALLOC_MODE_EXTERNAL)

  • Default alloc mode (CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MEM_ALLOC_MODE_DEFAULT)

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_NODE_ID_TIMEOUT

Node Identity advertising timeout

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_SERVER

This option determines for how long the local node advertises using Node Identity. The given value is in seconds. The specification limits this to 60 seconds and lists it as the recommended value as well. So leaving the default value is the safest option. When an unprovisioned device is provisioned successfully and becomes a node, it will start to advertise using Node Identity during the time set by this option. And after that, Network ID will be advertised.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PROXY_FILTER_SIZE

Maximum number of filter entries per Proxy Client

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_SERVER

This option specifies how many Proxy Filter entries the local node supports. The entries of Proxy filter (whitelist or blacklist) are used to store a list of addresses which can be used to decide which messages will be forwarded to the Proxy Client by the Proxy Server.

This option specifies the maximum capacity of the solicitation replay protection list. The solicitation replay protection list is used to reject Solicitation PDUs that were already processed by a node, which will store the solicitation src and solicitation sequence number of the received Solicitation PDU message.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_GATT_PROXY_CLIENT

BLE Mesh GATT Proxy Client

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option enables support for Mesh GATT Proxy Client. The Proxy Client can use the GATT bearer to send mesh messages to a node that supports the advertising bearer.

This option specifies the maximum number of Solicitation Source (SSRC) that can be used by Proxy Client for sending a Solicitation PDU. A Proxy Client may use the primary address or any of the secondary addresses as the SSRC for a Solicitation PDU. So for a Proxy Client, it's better to choose the value based on its own element count.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

Store BLE Mesh configuration persistently

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

When selected, the BLE Mesh stack will take care of storing/restoring the BLE Mesh configuration persistently in flash. If the device is a BLE Mesh node, when this option is enabled, the configuration of the device will be stored persistently, including unicast address, NetKey, AppKey, etc. And if the device is a BLE Mesh Provisioner, the information of the device will be stored persistently, including the information of provisioned nodes, NetKey, AppKey, etc.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_STORE_TIMEOUT

Delay (in seconds) before storing anything persistently

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines in seconds how soon any pending changes are actually written into persistent storage (flash) after a change occurs. The option allows nodes to delay a certain period of time to save proper information to flash. The default value is 0, which means information will be stored immediately once there are updates.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SEQ_STORE_RATE

How often the sequence number gets updated in storage

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines how often the local sequence number gets updated in persistent storage (i.e. flash). e.g. a value of 100 means that the sequence number will be stored to flash on every 100th increment. If the node sends messages very frequently a higher value makes more sense, whereas if the node sends infrequently a value as low as 0 (update storage for every increment) can make sense. When the stack gets initialized it will add sequence number to the last stored one, so that it starts off with a value that's guaranteed to be larger than the last one used before power off.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RPL_STORE_TIMEOUT

Minimum frequency that the RPL gets updated in storage

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This value defines in seconds how soon the RPL (Replay Protection List) gets written to persistent storage after a change occurs. If the node receives messages frequently, then a large value is recommended. If the node receives messages rarely, then the value can be as low as 0 (which means the RPL is written into the storage immediately). Note that if the node operates in a security-sensitive case, and there is a risk of sudden power-off, then a value of 0 is strongly recommended. Otherwise, a power loss before RPL being written into the storage may introduce message replay attacks and system security will be in a vulnerable state.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS_BACKWARD_COMPATIBILITY

A specific option for settings backward compatibility

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

This option is created to solve the issue of failure in recovering node information after mesh stack updates. In the old version mesh stack, there is no key of "mesh/role" in nvs. In the new version mesh stack, key of "mesh/role" is added in nvs, recovering node information needs to check "mesh/role" key in nvs and implements selective recovery of mesh node information. Therefore, there may be failure in recovering node information during node restarting after OTA.

The new version mesh stack adds the option of "mesh/role" because we have added the support of storing Provisioner information, while the old version only supports storing node information.

If users are updating their nodes from old version to new version, we recommend enabling this option, so that system could set the flag in advance before recovering node information and make sure the node information recovering could work as expected.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SPECIFIC_PARTITION

Use a specific NVS partition for BLE Mesh

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

When selected, the mesh stack will use a specified NVS partition instead of default NVS partition. Note that the specified partition must be registered with NVS using nvs_flash_init_partition() API, and the partition must exists in the csv file. When Provisioner needs to store a large amount of nodes' information in the flash (e.g. more than 20), this option is recommended to be enabled.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_PARTITION_NAME

Name of the NVS partition for BLE Mesh

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SPECIFIC_PARTITION

This value defines the name of the specified NVS partition used by the mesh stack.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_USE_MULTIPLE_NAMESPACE

Support using multiple NVS namespaces by Provisioner

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS

When selected, Provisioner can use different NVS namespaces to store different instances of mesh information. For example, if in the first room, Provisioner uses NetKey A, AppKey A and provisions three devices, these information will be treated as mesh information instance A. When the Provisioner moves to the second room, it uses NetKey B, AppKey B and provisions two devices, then the information will be treated as mesh information instance B. Here instance A and instance B will be stored in different namespaces. With this option enabled, Provisioner needs to use specific functions to open the corresponding NVS namespace, restore the mesh information, release the mesh information or erase the mesh information.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MAX_NVS_NAMESPACE

Maximum number of NVS namespaces

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SETTINGS > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_USE_MULTIPLE_NAMESPACE

This option specifies the maximum NVS namespaces supported by Provisioner.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SUBNET_COUNT

Maximum number of mesh subnets per network

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies how many subnets a Mesh network can have at the same time. Indeed, this value decides the number of the network keys which can be owned by a node.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LABEL_COUNT

Maximum number of Label UUIDs used for Virtual Addresses

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies how many Label UUIDs can be stored. Indeed, this value decides the number of the Virtual Addresses can be supported by a node.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_CRPL

Maximum capacity of the replay protection list

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

This option specifies the maximum capacity of the replay protection list. It is similar to Network message cache size, but has a different purpose. The replay protection list is used to prevent a node from replay attack, which will store the source address and sequence number of the received mesh messages. For Provisioner, the replay protection list size should not be smaller than the maximum number of nodes whose information can be stored. And the element number of each node should also be taken into consideration. For example, if Provisioner can provision up to 20 nodes and each node contains two elements, then the replay protection list size of Provisioner should be at least 40.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_NOT_RELAY_REPLAY_MSG

Not relay replayed messages in a mesh network

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

There may be many expired messages in a complex mesh network that would be considered replayed messages. Enable this option will refuse to relay such messages, which could help to reduce invalid packets in the mesh network. However, it should be noted that enabling this option may result in packet loss in certain environments. Therefore, users need to decide whether to enable this option according to the actual usage situation.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_MSG_CACHE_SIZE

Network message cache size

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Number of messages that are cached for the network. This helps prevent unnecessary decryption operations and unnecessary relays. This option is similar to Replay protection list, but has a different purpose. A node is not required to cache the entire Network PDU and may cache only part of it for tracking, such as values for SRC/SEQ or others.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_ADV_BUF_COUNT

Number of advertising buffers

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Number of advertising buffers available. The transport layer reserves ADV_BUF_COUNT - 3 buffers for outgoing segments. The maximum outgoing SDU size is 12 times this value (out of which 4 or 8 bytes are used for the Transport Layer MIC). For example, 5 segments means the maximum SDU size is 60 bytes, which leaves 56 bytes for application layer data using a 4-byte MIC, or 52 bytes using an 8-byte MIC.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_IVU_DIVIDER

Divider for IV Update state refresh timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

When the IV Update state enters Normal operation or IV Update in Progress, we need to keep track of how many hours has passed in the state, since the specification requires us to remain in the state at least for 96 hours (Update in Progress has an additional upper limit of 144 hours).

In order to fulfill the above requirement, even if the node might be powered off once in a while, we need to store persistently how many hours the node has been in the state. This doesn't necessarily need to happen every hour (thanks to the flexible duration range). The exact cadence will depend a lot on the ways that the node will be used and what kind of power source it has.

Since there is no single optimal answer, this configuration option allows specifying a divider, i.e. how many intervals the 96 hour minimum gets split into. After each interval the duration that the node has been in the current state gets stored to flash. E.g. the default value of 4 means that the state is saved every 24 hours (96 / 4).

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_IVU_RECOVERY_IVI

Recovery the IV index when the latest whole IV update procedure is missed

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

According to Section 3.10.5 of Mesh Specification v1.0.1. If a node in Normal Operation receives a Secure Network beacon with an IV index equal to the last known IV index+1 and the IV Update Flag set to 0, the node may update its IV without going to the IV Update in Progress state, or it may initiate an IV Index Recovery procedure (Section 3.10.6), or it may ignore the Secure Network beacon. The node makes the choice depending on the time since last IV update and the likelihood that the node has missed the Secure Network beacons with the IV update Flag. When the above situation is encountered, this option can be used to decide whether to perform the IV index recovery procedure.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_SAR_ENHANCEMENT

Segmentation and reassembly enhancement

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Enable this option to use the enhanced segmentation and reassembly mechanism introduced in Bluetooth Mesh Protocol 1.1.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_TX_SEG_MSG_COUNT

Maximum number of simultaneous outgoing segmented messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of simultaneous outgoing multi-segment and/or reliable messages. The default value is 1, which means the device can only send one segmented message at a time. And if another segmented message is going to be sent, it should wait for the completion of the previous one. If users are going to send multiple segmented messages at the same time, this value should be configured properly.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RX_SEG_MSG_COUNT

Maximum number of simultaneous incoming segmented messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of simultaneous incoming multi-segment and/or reliable messages. The default value is 1, which means the device can only receive one segmented message at a time. And if another segmented message is going to be received, it should wait for the completion of the previous one. If users are going to receive multiple segmented messages at the same time, this value should be configured properly.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RX_SDU_MAX

Maximum incoming Upper Transport Access PDU length

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum incoming Upper Transport Access PDU length. Leave this to the default value, unless you really need to optimize memory usage.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_TX_SEG_MAX

Maximum number of segments in outgoing messages

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Maximum number of segments supported for outgoing messages. This value should typically be fine-tuned based on what models the local node supports, i.e. what's the largest message payload that the node needs to be able to send. This value affects memory and call stack consumption, which is why the default is lower than the maximum that the specification would allow (32 segments).

The maximum outgoing SDU size is 12 times this number (out of which 4 or 8 bytes is used for the Transport Layer MIC). For example, 5 segments means the maximum SDU size is 60 bytes, which leaves 56 bytes for application layer data using a 4-byte MIC and 52 bytes using an 8-byte MIC.

Be sure to specify a sufficient number of advertising buffers when setting this option to a higher value. There must be at least three more advertising buffers (BLE_MESH_ADV_BUF_COUNT) as there are outgoing segments.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_RELAY

Relay support

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH

Enable this option to operate as a Low Power Node. If low power consumption is required by a node, this option should be enabled. And once the node enters the mesh network, it will try to find a Friend node and establish a friendship.

CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_ESTABLISHMENT

Perform Friendship establishment using low power

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

Perform the Friendship establishment using low power with the help of a reduced scan duty cycle. The downside of this is that the node may miss out on messages intended for it until it has successfully set up Friendship with a Friend node. When this option is enabled, the node will stop scanning for a period of time after a Friend Request or Friend Poll is sent, so as to reduce more power consumption.

Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_AUTO

Automatically start looking for Friend nodes once provisioned

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

Once provisioned, automatically enable LPN functionality and start looking for Friend nodes. If this option is disabled LPN mode needs to be manually enabled by calling bt_mesh_lpn_set(true).

Receive delay requested by the local node

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

The ReceiveDelay is the time between the Low Power node sending a request and listening for a response. This delay allows the Friend node time to prepare the response. The value is in units of milliseconds.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_POLL_TIMEOUT

The value of the PollTimeout timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

PollTimeout timer is used to measure time between two consecutive requests sent by a Low Power node. If no requests are received the Friend node before the PollTimeout timer expires, then the friendship is considered terminated. The value is in units of 100 milliseconds, so e.g. a value of 300 means 30 seconds. The smaller the value, the faster the Low Power node tries to get messages from corresponding Friend node and vice versa.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LPN_INIT_POLL_TIMEOUT

The starting value of the PollTimeout timer

Found in: Component config > CONFIG_BLE_MESH > CONFIG_BLE_MESH_LOW_POWER

These are generated sequentially by adding 0 and 1 (respectively) to the base MAC address. The remaining two interfaces (WiFi softap and Ethernet) receive local MAC addresses. These are derived from the universal WiFi station and Bluetooth MAC addresses, respectively.

When using the default (Espressif-assigned) base MAC address, either setting can be used. When using a custom universal MAC address range, the correct setting will depend on the allocation of MAC addresses in this range (either 2 or 4 per device.)

Note that ESP32-C3 has no integrated Ethernet MAC. Although it's possible to use the esp_read_mac() API to return a MAC for Ethernet, this can only be used with an external MAC peripheral.

Available options:

  • Two (CONFIG_ESP32C3_UNIVERSAL_MAC_ADDRESSES_TWO)

  • Four (CONFIG_ESP32C3_UNIVERSAL_MAC_ADDRESSES_FOUR)

CONFIG_ESP_MAC_USE_CUSTOM_MAC_AS_BASE_MAC

Enable using custom mac as base mac

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > MAC Config

When this configuration is enabled, the user can invoke esp_read_mac to obtain the desired type of MAC using a custom MAC as the base MAC.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Sleep Config

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_POWER_DOWN_FLASH

Power down flash in light sleep when there is no SPIRAM

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

If enabled, chip will try to power down flash as part of esp_light_sleep_start(), which costs more time when chip wakes up. Can only be enabled if there is no SPIRAM configured.

This option will power down flash under a strict but relatively safe condition. Also, it is possible to power down flash under a relaxed condition by using esp_sleep_pd_config() to set ESP_PD_DOMAIN_VDDSDIO to ESP_PD_OPTION_OFF. It should be noted that there is a risk in powering down flash, you can refer ESP-IDF Programming Guide/API Reference/System API/Sleep Modes/Power-down of Flash for more details.

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_FLASH_LEAKAGE_WORKAROUND

Pull-up Flash CS pin in light sleep

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

All IOs will be set to isolate(floating) state by default during sleep. Since the power supply of SPI Flash is not lost during lightsleep, if its CS pin is recognized as low level(selected state) in the floating state, there will be a large current leakage, and the data in Flash may be corrupted by random signals on other SPI pins. Select this option will set the CS pin of Flash to PULL-UP state during sleep, but this will increase the sleep current about 10 uA. If you are developing with esp32xx modules, you must select this option, but if you are developing with chips, you can also pull up the CS pin of SPI Flash in the external circuit to save power consumption caused by internal pull-up during sleep. (!!! Don't deselect this option if you don't have external SPI Flash CS pin pullups.)

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_PSRAM_LEAKAGE_WORKAROUND

Pull-up PSRAM CS pin in light sleep

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

All IOs will be set to isolate(floating) state by default during sleep. Since the power supply of PSRAM is not lost during lightsleep, if its CS pin is recognized as low level(selected state) in the floating state, there will be a large current leakage, and the data in PSRAM may be corrupted by random signals on other SPI pins. Select this option will set the CS pin of PSRAM to PULL-UP state during sleep, but this will increase the sleep current about 10 uA. If you are developing with esp32xx modules, you must select this option, but if you are developing with chips, you can also pull up the CS pin of PSRAM in the external circuit to save power consumption caused by internal pull-up during sleep. (!!! Don't deselect this option if you don't have external PSRAM CS pin pullups.)

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled) if SPIRAM

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_MSPI_NEED_ALL_IO_PU

Pull-up all SPI pins in light sleep

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

To reduce leakage current, some types of SPI Flash/RAM only need to pull up the CS pin during light sleep. But there are also some kinds of SPI Flash/RAM that need to pull up all pins. It depends on the SPI Flash/RAM chip used.

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_GPIO_RESET_WORKAROUND

light sleep GPIO reset workaround

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

esp32c2, esp32c3, esp32s3, esp32c6 and esp32h2 will reset at wake-up if GPIO is received a small electrostatic pulse during light sleep, with specific condition

  • GPIO needs to be configured as input-mode only

  • The pin receives a small electrostatic pulse, and reset occurs when the pulse voltage is higher than 6 V

For GPIO set to input mode only, it is not a good practice to leave it open/floating, The hardware design needs to controlled it with determined supply or ground voltage is necessary.

This option provides a software workaround for this issue. Configure to isolate all GPIO pins in sleep state.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_WAIT_FLASH_READY_EXTRA_DELAY

Extra delay (in us) after flash powerdown sleep wakeup to wait flash ready

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

When the chip exits sleep, the CPU and the flash chip are powered on at the same time. CPU will run rom code (deepsleep) or ram code (lightsleep) first, and then load or execute code from flash.

Some flash chips need sufficient time to pass between power on and first read operation. By default, without any extra delay, this time is approximately 900us, although some flash chip types need more than that.

(!!! Please adjust this value according to the Data Sheet of SPI Flash used in your project.) In Flash Data Sheet, the parameters that define the Flash ready timing after power-up (minimum time from Vcc(min) to CS activeare) usually named tVSL in ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS chapter, and the configuration value here should be: ESP_SLEEP_WAIT_FLASH_READY_EXTRA_DELAY = tVSL - 900

For esp32 and esp32s3, the default extra delay is set to 2000us. When optimizing startup time for applications which require it, this value may be reduced.

If you are seeing "flash read err, 1000" message printed to the console after deep sleep reset on esp32, or triggered RTC_WDT/LP_WDT after lightsleep wakeup, try increasing this value. (For esp32, the delay will be executed in both deep sleep and light sleep wake up flow. For chips after esp32, the delay will be executed only in light sleep flow, the delay controlled by the EFUSE_FLASH_TPUW in ROM will be executed in deepsleep wake up flow.)

Range:
  • from 0 to 5000

Default value:
  • 0

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_CACHE_SAFE_ASSERTION

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_SLEEP_EVENT_CALLBACKS

Enable registration of sleep event callbacks

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > Sleep Config

If enabled, it allows user to register sleep event callbacks. It is primarily designed for internal developers and customers can use PM_LIGHT_SLEEP_CALLBACKS as an alternative.

NOTE: These callbacks are executed from the IDLE task context hence you cannot have any blocking calls in your callbacks.

NOTE: Enabling these callbacks may change sleep duration calculations based on time spent in callback and hence it is highly recommended to keep them as short as possible.

Default value:

CONFIG_RTC_CLK_CAL_CYCLES

Number of cycles for RTC_SLOW_CLK calibration

Found in: Component config > Hardware Settings > RTC Clock Config

When the startup code initializes RTC_SLOW_CLK, it can perform calibration by comparing the RTC_SLOW_CLK frequency with main XTAL frequency. This option sets the number of RTC_SLOW_CLK cycles measured by the calibration routine. Higher numbers increase calibration precision, which may be important for applications which spend a lot of time in deep sleep. Lower numbers reduce startup time.

When this option is set to 0, clock calibration will not be performed at startup, and approximate clock frequencies will be assumed:

  • 150000 Hz if internal RC oscillator is used as clock source. For this use value 1024.

  • 32768 Hz if the 32k crystal oscillator is used. For this use value 3000 or more.

    In case more value will help improve the definition of the launch of the crystal. If the crystal could not start, it will be switched to internal RC.

Enable profiling counters for PM locks

Found in: Component config > Power Management > CONFIG_PM_ENABLE

If enabled, esp_pm_* functions will keep track of the amount of time each of the power management locks has been held, and esp_pm_dump_locks function will print this information. This feature can be used to analyze which locks are preventing the chip from going into a lower power state, and see what time the chip spends in each power saving mode. This feature does incur some run-time overhead, so should typically be disabled in production builds.

Default value:
CONFIG_PM_TRACE

Enable debug tracing of PM using GPIOs

Found in: Component config > Power Management > CONFIG_PM_ENABLE

If enabled, some GPIOs will be used to signal events such as RTOS ticks, frequency switching, entry/exit from idle state. Refer to pm_trace.c file for the list of GPIOs. This feature is intended to be used when analyzing/debugging behavior of power management implementation, and should be kept disabled in applications.

Default value:
CONFIG_PM_SLP_IRAM_OPT

Put lightsleep related codes in internal RAM

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, about 2.1KB of lightsleep related source code would be in IRAM and chip would sleep longer for 310us at 160MHz CPU frequency most each time. This feature is intended to be used when lower power consumption is needed while there is enough place in IRAM to place source code.

CONFIG_PM_RTOS_IDLE_OPT

Put RTOS IDLE related codes in internal RAM

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, about 180Bytes of RTOS_IDLE related source code would be in IRAM and chip would sleep longer for 20us at 160MHz CPU frequency most each time. This feature is intended to be used when lower power consumption is needed while there is enough place in IRAM to place source code.

CONFIG_PM_SLP_DISABLE_GPIO

Disable all GPIO when chip at sleep

Found in: Component config > Power Management

This feature is intended to disable all GPIO pins at automantic sleep to get a lower power mode. If enabled, chips will disable all GPIO pins at automantic sleep to reduce about 200~300 uA current. If you want to specifically use some pins normally as chip wakes when chip sleeps, you can call 'gpio_sleep_sel_dis' to disable this feature on those pins. You can also keep this feature on and call 'gpio_sleep_set_direction' and 'gpio_sleep_set_pull_mode' to have a different GPIO configuration at sleep. Waring: If you want to enable this option on ESP32, you should enable GPIO_ESP32_SUPPORT_SWITCH_SLP_PULL at first, otherwise you will not be able to switch pullup/pulldown mode.

CONFIG_PM_LIGHTSLEEP_RTC_OSC_CAL_INTERVAL

Calibrate the RTC_FAST/SLOW clock every N times of light sleep

Found in: Component config > Power Management

The value of this option determines the calibration interval of the RTC_FAST/SLOW clock during sleep when power management is enabled. When it is configured as N, the RTC_FAST/SLOW clock will be calibrated every N times of lightsleep. Decreasing this value will increase the time the chip is in the active state, thereby increasing the average power consumption of the chip. Increasing this value can reduce the average power consumption, but when the external environment changes drastically and the chip RTC_FAST/SLOW oscillator frequency drifts, it may cause system instability.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_PM_POWER_DOWN_CPU_IN_LIGHT_SLEEP

Power down CPU in light sleep

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, the CPU will be powered down in light sleep, ESP chips supports saving and restoring CPU's running context before and after light sleep, the feature provides applications with seamless CPU powerdowned lightsleep without user awareness. But this will takes up some internal memory. On esp32c3 soc, enabling this option will consume 1.68 KB of internal RAM and will reduce sleep current consumption by about 100 uA. On esp32s3 soc, enabling this option will consume 8.58 KB of internal RAM and will reduce sleep current consumption by about 650 uA.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_PM_POWER_DOWN_PERIPHERAL_IN_LIGHT_SLEEP

Power down Digital Peripheral in light sleep (EXPERIMENTAL)

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, digital peripherals will be powered down in light sleep, it will reduce sleep current consumption by about 100 uA. Chip will save/restore register context at sleep/wake time to keep the system running. Enabling this option will increase static RAM and heap usage, the actual cost depends on the peripherals you have initialized. In order to save/restore the context of the necessary hardware for FreeRTOS to run, it will need at least 4.55 KB free heap at sleep time. Otherwise sleep will not power down the peripherals.

Note1: Please use this option with caution, the current IDF does not support the retention of all peripherals. When the digital peripherals are powered off and a sleep and wake-up is completed, the peripherals that have not saved the running context are equivalent to performing a reset. !!! Please confirm the peripherals used in your application and their sleep retention support status before enabling this option, peripherals sleep retention driver support status is tracked in power_management.rst

Note2: When this option is enabled simultaneously with FREERTOS_USE_TICKLESS_IDLE, since the UART will be powered down, the uart FIFO will be flushed before sleep to avoid data loss, however, this has the potential to block the sleep process and cause the wakeup time to be skipped, which will cause the tick of freertos to not be compensated correctly when returning from sleep and cause the system to crash. To avoid this, you can increase FREERTOS_IDLE_TIME_BEFORE_SLEEP threshold in menuconfig.

Default value:
  • No (disabled) if SOC_PAU_SUPPORTED

CONFIG_PM_LIGHT_SLEEP_CALLBACKS

Enable registration of pm light sleep callbacks

Found in: Component config > Power Management

If enabled, it allows user to register entry and exit callbacks which are called before and after entering auto light sleep.

NOTE: These callbacks are executed from the IDLE task context hence you cannot have any blocking calls in your callbacks.

NOTE: Enabling these callbacks may change sleep duration calculations based on time spent in callback and hence it is highly recommended to keep them as short as possible

Default value:

ESP PSRAM

ESP Ringbuf

Contains:

CONFIG_RINGBUF_PLACE_FUNCTIONS_INTO_FLASH

Place non-ISR ringbuf functions into flash

Found in: Component config > ESP Ringbuf

Place non-ISR ringbuf functions (like xRingbufferCreate/xRingbufferSend) into flash. This frees up IRAM, but the functions can no longer be called when the cache is disabled.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_RINGBUF_PLACE_ISR_FUNCTIONS_INTO_FLASH

Place ISR ringbuf functions into flash

Found in: Component config > ESP Ringbuf > CONFIG_RINGBUF_PLACE_FUNCTIONS_INTO_FLASH

Place ISR ringbuf functions (like xRingbufferSendFromISR/xRingbufferReceiveFromISR) into flash. This frees up IRAM, but the functions can no longer be called when the cache is disabled or from an IRAM interrupt context.

This option is not compatible with ESP-IDF drivers which are configured to run the ISR from an IRAM context, e.g. CONFIG_UART_ISR_IN_IRAM.

Default value:

ESP System Settings

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP_DEFAULT_CPU_FREQ_MHZ

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC

Panic handler behaviour

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

If FreeRTOS detects unexpected behaviour or an unhandled exception, the panic handler is invoked. Configure the panic handler's action here.

Available options:

  • Print registers and halt (CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_HALT)

    Outputs the relevant registers over the serial port and halt the processor. Needs a manual reset to restart.

  • Print registers and reboot (CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_PRINT_REBOOT)

    Outputs the relevant registers over the serial port and immediately reset the processor.

  • Silent reboot (CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PANIC_SILENT_REBOOT)

    Just resets the processor without outputting anything

  • 0

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_RTC_EXT_XTAL_BOOTSTRAP_CYCLES

Bootstrap cycles for external 32kHz crystal

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

To reduce the startup time of an external RTC crystal, we bootstrap it with a 32kHz square wave for a fixed number of cycles. Setting 0 will disable bootstrapping (if disabled, the crystal may take longer to start up or fail to oscillate under some conditions).

If this value is too high, a faulty crystal may initially start and then fail. If this value is too low, an otherwise good crystal may not start.

To accurately determine if the crystal has started, set a larger "Number of cycles for RTC_SLOW_CLK calibration" (about 3000).

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_ALLOW_RTC_FAST_MEM_AS_HEAP

Enable RTC fast memory for dynamic allocations

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This config option allows to add RTC fast memory region to system heap with capability similar to that of DRAM region but without DMA. This memory will be consumed first per heap initialization order by early startup services and scheduler related code. Speed wise RTC fast memory operates on APB clock and hence does not have much performance impact.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_USE_EH_FRAME

Generate and use eh_frame for backtracing

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

Generate DWARF information for each function of the project. These information will parsed and used to perform backtracing when panics occur. Activating this option will activate asynchronous frame unwinding and generation of both .eh_frame and .eh_frame_hdr sections, resulting in a bigger binary size (20% to 100% larger). The main purpose of this option is to be able to have a backtrace parsed and printed by the program itself, regardless of the serial monitor used. This option shall NOT be used for production.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

Memory protection

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP_SYSTEM_PMP_IDRAM_SPLIT

Enable IRAM/DRAM split protection

CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_SECONDARY

Channel for console secondary output

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This secondary option supports output through other specific port like USB_SERIAL_JTAG when UART0 port as a primary is selected but not connected. This secondary output currently only supports non-blocking mode without using REPL. If you want to output in blocking mode with REPL or input through this secondary port, please change the primary config to this port in Channel for console output menu.

Available options:

  • No secondary console (CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_SECONDARY_NONE)

  • USB_SERIAL_JTAG PORT (CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_SECONDARY_USB_SERIAL_JTAG)

CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_NUM

UART peripheral to use for console output (0-1)

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This UART peripheral is used for console output from the ESP-IDF Bootloader and the app.

If the configuration is different in the Bootloader binary compared to the app binary, UART is reconfigured after the bootloader exits and the app starts.

Due to an ESP32 ROM bug, UART2 is not supported for console output via esp_rom_printf.

Available options:

  • UART0 (CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_CUSTOM_NUM_0)

  • UART1 (CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_CUSTOM_NUM_1)

CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_TX_GPIO

CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_RX_GPIO

UART RX on GPIO#

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This GPIO is used for UART RX input in the ESP-IDF Bootloader and the app (including default default standard input of the app).

Note: The default ESP-IDF Bootloader configures this pin but doesn't read anything from the UART.

If the configuration is different in the Bootloader binary compared to the app binary, UART is reconfigured after the bootloader exits and the app starts.

Range:
Default value:
CONFIG_ESP_CONSOLE_UART_BAUDRATE

UART console baud rate

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This baud rate is used by both the ESP-IDF Bootloader and the app (including boot log output and default standard input/output/error of the app).

The app's maximum baud rate depends on the UART clock source. If Power Management is disabled, the UART clock source is the APB clock and all baud rates in the available range will be sufficiently accurate. If Power Management is enabled, REF_TICK clock source is used so the baud rate is divided from 1MHz. Baud rates above 1Mbps are not possible and values between 500Kbps and 1Mbps may not be accurate.

If the configuration is different in the Bootloader binary compared to the app binary, UART is reconfigured after the bootloader exits and the app starts.

Range:
Default value:
  • 115200

CONFIG_ESP_INT_WDT

Interrupt watchdog

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

This watchdog timer can detect if the FreeRTOS tick interrupt has not been called for a certain time, either because a task turned off interrupts and did not turn them on for a long time, or because an interrupt handler did not return. It will try to invoke the panic handler first and failing that reset the SoC.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_CHECK_IDLE_TASK_CPU0

Watch CPU0 Idle Task

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_EN > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_INIT

If this option is enabled, the Task Watchdog Timer will watch the CPU0 Idle Task. Having the Task Watchdog watch the Idle Task allows for detection of CPU starvation as the Idle Task not being called is usually a symptom of CPU starvation. Starvation of the Idle Task is detrimental as FreeRTOS household tasks depend on the Idle Task getting some runtime every now and then.

Default value:
  • Yes (enabled)

CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_CHECK_IDLE_TASK_CPU1

Watch CPU1 Idle Task

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_EN > CONFIG_ESP_TASK_WDT_INIT

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings > CONFIG_ESP_XT_WDT

Enable this to automatically switch to BACKUP32K_CLK as the source of RTC_SLOW_CLK when the watchdog timer expires.

Default value:
CONFIG_ESP_PANIC_HANDLER_IRAM

Place panic handler code in IRAM

Found in: Component config > ESP System Settings

If this option is disabled (default), the panic handler code is placed in flash not IRAM. This means that if ESP-IDF crashes while flash cache is disabled, the panic handler will automatically re-enable flash cache before running GDB Stub or Core Dump. This adds some minor risk, if the flash cache status is also corrupted during the crash.

If this option is enabled, the panic handler code (including required UART functions) is placed in IRAM. This may be necessary to debug some complex issues with crashes while flash cache is disabled (for example, when writing to SPI flash) or when flash cache is corrupted when an exception is triggered.

Default value:
  • No (disabled)

CONFIG_ESP_DEBUG_STUBS_ENABLE

OpenOCD debug stubs

IPC (Inter-Processor Call)

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP_IPC_TASK_STACK_SIZE

Inter-Processor Call (IPC) task stack size

Found in: Component config > IPC (Inter-Processor Call)

Configure the IPC tasks stack size. An IPC task runs on each core (in dual core mode), and allows for cross-core function calls. See IPC documentation for more details. The default IPC stack size should be enough for most common simple use cases. However, users can increase/decrease the stack size to their needs.

Range:
  • from 512 to 65536

Default value:
  • 1024

CONFIG_ESP_IPC_USES_CALLERS_PRIORITY

IPC runs at caller's priority

Wi-Fi

Contains:

CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_STATIC_RX_BUFFER_NUM

Max number of WiFi static RX buffers

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

Set the number of WiFi static RX buffers. Each buffer takes approximately 1.6KB of RAM. The static rx buffers are allocated when esp_wifi_init is called, they are not freed until esp_wifi_deinit is called.

WiFi hardware use these buffers to receive all 802.11 frames. A higher number may allow higher throughput but increases memory use. If ESP_WIFI_AMPDU_RX_ENABLED is enabled, this value is recommended to set equal or bigger than ESP_WIFI_RX_BA_WIN in order to achieve better throughput and compatibility with both stations and APs.

Range:
  • from 2 to 128 if SOC_WIFI_HE_SUPPORT

Default value:
  • 16 if SPIRAM_TRY_ALLOCATE_WIFI_LWIP

CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_DYNAMIC_RX_BUFFER_NUM

Max number of WiFi dynamic RX buffers

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

Set the number of WiFi dynamic RX buffers, 0 means unlimited RX buffers will be allocated (provided sufficient free RAM). The size of each dynamic RX buffer depends on the size of the received data frame.

For each received data frame, the WiFi driver makes a copy to an RX buffer and then delivers it to the high layer TCP/IP stack. The dynamic RX buffer is freed after the higher layer has successfully received the data frame.

For some applications, WiFi data frames may be received faster than the application can process them. In these cases we may run out of memory if RX buffer number is unlimited (0).

If a dynamic RX buffer limit is set, it should be at least the number of static RX buffers.

Range:
Default value:
  • 32

CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_TX_BUFFER

Type of WiFi TX buffers

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

Select type of WiFi TX buffers:

If "Static" is selected, WiFi TX buffers are allocated when WiFi is initialized and released when WiFi is de-initialized. The size of each static TX buffer is fixed to about 1.6KB.

If "Dynamic" is selected, each WiFi TX buffer is allocated as needed when a data frame is delivered to the Wifi driver from the TCP/IP stack. The buffer is freed after the data frame has been sent by the WiFi driver. The size of each dynamic TX buffer depends on the length of each data frame sent by the TCP/IP layer.

If PSRAM is enabled, "Static" should be selected to guarantee enough WiFi TX buffers. If PSRAM is disabled, "Dynamic" should be selected to improve the utilization of RAM.

Available options:

  • Static (CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_STATIC_TX_BUFFER)

  • Dynamic (CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_DYNAMIC_TX_BUFFER)

CONFIG_ESP_WIFI_STATIC_TX_BUFFER_NUM

Max number of WiFi static TX buffers

Found in: Component config > Wi-Fi

Set the number of WiFi static TX buffers. Each buffer takes approximately 1.6KB of RAM. The static RX buffers are allocated when esp_wifi_init() is called, they are not released until esp_wifi_deinit() is called.

For each transmitted data frame from the higher layer TCP/IP stack, the WiFi driver makes a copy of it in a TX buffer. For some applications especially UDP applications, the upper layer can deliver frames faster than WiFi layer can transmit. In these cases, we may run out of TX buffers.

Range:
