Hornbill is based on ESP32. A single chip solution with dual core high speed processors, numerous peripherals and built in WiFi and Bluetooth (Classic as well as BLE). Hornbill ESP32 Dev board comes with built in single cell LiPo charger.

The project Hornbill will also offer a rugged IP67 water/dust proof case and multipurpose baseboard to build rugged hardware. We will be writing numerous bare metal as well as Arduino tutorials to get you started.

We believe IoT devices need to be more secure and we will work on providing end to end TLS1.2 encryption with major IoT cloud platforms. We will also on top build Open Source IoT frameworks to provide templates to run your own secure servers!

The project is now crowdfunding, starting at $12. Check here:


The product is live on crowdsupply, do share and support. We are offering it at special campaign price of $12 including free world wide shipping! Grab some soon to get on first batch of 100.

Hornbill is feature rich, in this tutorial I try and explain the specifications and what they mean to use the chip in your project.


Hello world and Blinky together! Simply multitasking with ESP32

I would like to contribute to the project somehow, possibly through Arduino tutorials.

I have had quite a bit of experience with the esp8266, you may see in my projects I have a current product based on it.

:) The ESP software development framework is under active development and it will stay so for sometime now. We think the it needs a lot of help from community, so trying to contribute by making bare-metal, free rtos and  arduino tutorials. If you'd like to be updated on it please sign up here. 

I will post a link to campaign sign up page once it is up.
