The Ai-Thinker ESP-01S IoT Module is a self contained SOC with integrated TCP/IP protocol stack that can give any microcontroller access to your WiFi network.
This genuine product offers higher reliability, manufacturing quality and compatibility than the cheaper clones from 3rd parties.
The ESP8266 is capable of either hosting an application or offloading all Wi-Fi networking functions from another application processor.
Each ESP8266 module comes pre-programmed with an AT command set firmware. This means you can simply hook it up to your Arduino board and get out of the box WiFi-ability!
The ESP8266 module is an extremely cost-effective board with a huge, and ever-growing community.
The online sources for information about this module and how to use it are almost limitless. Just use your favorite search engine to find many resources to aid you in using the ESP8266.
Two different USB Adapters are also available for programming and serial communication (CP2104 and CH340).
Note: The ESP8266 Module is a 3.3V module and needs a logic level converter if you want to use it in a 5V environment, for example together with an Arduino UNO R3.
