SparkFun will be closed Monday 7/4/2022 for the 4th of July holiday. Orders placed after 2 pm MT on Friday 7/1/2022 will be processed on Tuesday 7/6/2022. SparkFun Support will also resume on Tuesday 7/6/2022. Have a safe holiday!
The ESP-PROG is one of Espressif’s development and debugging tools, with functions including automatic firmware downloading, serial communication, and JTAG online debugging. ESP-PROG's automatic firmware downloading and serial communication functions are supported on both the ESP8266 and ESP32 platforms, while the JTAG online debugging is supported only on the ESP32 platform.
ESP-PROG can easily connect to a PC with the use of a single USB cable. The PC can then identify the board's downloading and JTAG interfaces (functions) by their port numbers.
Given that the power supply voltage may vary on different user boards, either of the ESP-PROG interfaces can provide the 5V or the 3.3V power supply through pin headers, in order to ensure power compatibility
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
