ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1

[中文]

This user guide will help you get started with ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1 and will also provide more in-depth information.

ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1 is an entry-level development board based on Bluetooth® Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4 combo module ESP32-H2-MINI-1 or ESP32-H2-MINI-1U.

Most of the I/O pins on the ESP32-H2-MINI-1/1U module are broken out to the pin headers on both sides of this board for easy interfacing. Developers can either connect peripherals with jumper wires or mount ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1 on a breadboard.

The description of components starts from the ESP32-H2-MINI-1/1U module on the left side and then goes clockwise.

Key Component

Description

ESP32-H2-MINI-1 or ESP32-H2-MINI-1U

ESP32-H2-MINI-1/1U, with ESP32-H2 inside which integrates a 2.4 GHz transceiver compliant with Bluetooth ® Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4-based technologies, supporting Bluetooth 5 (LE), Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Matter, and Zigbee. This module is specially designed for all kinds of low-power IoT applications.

Pin Headers

All available GPIO pins (except for the SPI bus for flash) are broken out to the pin headers on the board. For details, please see Header Block.

3.3 V Power On LED

Turns on when the USB power is connected to the board.

5 V to 3.3 V LDO

Power regulator that converts a 5 V supply into a 3.3 V output.

USB-to-UART Bridge

Single USB-UART bridge chip provides transfer rates up to 3 Mbps.

ESP32-H2 USB Type-C Port

The USB Type-C port on the ESP32-H2 chip compliant with USB 2.0 full speed. It is capable of up to 12 Mbps transfer speed (Note that this port does not support the faster 480 Mbps high-speed transfer mode).

Boot Button

Download button. Holding down Boot and then pressing Reset initiates Firmware Download mode for downloading firmware through the serial port.

Reset Button

Press this button to restart the system.

USB Type-C to UART Port

Power supply for the board as well as the communication interface between a computer and the ESP32-H2 chip via USB-to-UART bridge.

RGB LED

Addressable RGB LED, driven by GPIO8.

J5

Used for current measurement. See details in Section Current Measurement.

Start Application Development

Before powering up your ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1, please make sure that it is in good condition with no obvious signs of damage.

Required Hardware

  • ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1

  • USB-A to USB-C (Type C) cable

  • Computer running Windows, Linux, or macOS

Note

Some USB cables can only be used for charging, not data transmission and programming. Please choose accordingly.

Software Setup

Please proceed to Get Started, where Section Installation will quickly help you set up the development environment and then flash an application example onto your ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1.

Power Supply Options

There are three mutually exclusive ways to provide power to the board:

  • USB Type-C to UART port, default power supply

  • 5V and GND pin headers

  • 3V3 and GND pin headers

Current Measurement

The J5 headers on ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1 (see J5 in Figure ESP32-H2-DevKitM-1 - Front) can be used for measuring the current drawn by the ESP32-H2-MINI-1/1U module:

  • Remove the jumper: Power supply between the module and peripherals on the board is cut off. To measure the module’s current, connect the board with an ammeter via J5 headers.

  • Apply the jumper (factory default): Restore the board’s normal functionality.

Note

When using 3V3 and GND pin headers to power the board, please remove the J5 jumper, and connect an ammeter in series to the external circuit to measure the module’s current.
