SparkFun Qwiic Pocket Development Board - ESP32-C6

The SparkFun ESP32-C6 Qwiic Pocket Development Board is designed to fit the 1in. x 1in. Qwiic Standard Size, making it easy to add a powerful wireless development platform that stacks into any existing project using the Qwiic ecosystem. It features the ESP32-C6 Mini-1 module from espressif. We designed this board with components on both sides of the PCB to squeeze as many features as possible into its tiny footprint, including a USB-C connector, Qwiic connector, 2-pin JST battery connector with an on-board charging circuit, as well as two buttons for Reset and Boot. The design also works to optimize power consumption. In our testing, we measured total current consumption by the board to be ~14µA in Deep Sleep mode, making it an excellent fit for remote, battery-powered applications.

The ESP32-C6 SoC is built around a RISC-V single-core processor with 4 MB flash memory and an integrated wireless stack. The wireless stack supports 2.4 GHz WiFi 6, Bluetooth® 5.3, Zigbee, and Thread (802.15.4) and uses an on-board PCB antenna. The ESP32-C6 includes various peripheral options, including SPI, UART, LPUART, I2C, I2S, LED PWM, USB Serial/JTAG controller, ADC, and more. Though some are tied to specific pins, many of these peripherals can be mapped to any GPIO pin. Due to the board's size, it only breaks out eight total GPIO pins, including four ADC-compatible pins, Low Power and Standard UART, and an extra two GPIO pins.


The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.

SparkFun Qwiic Pocket Development Board - ESP32-C6 Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

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.

3 Programming

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.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

VERY LATE DELIVERY

The components I received worked without any issues, but my order arrived very late, causing a delay in my project.
