ESP32 CAM Module Introduction and key features

ESP32 CAM module is a board that consists of two basic parts the ESP32 microcontroller and a camera module. These basic parts are used to build different required projects that involve wireless communication. In this post we are going to explain the key features of the ESP32-CAM module:

ESP32-CAM key features

The heart of the esp32 CAM Module is Microcontroller. The microcontroller on ESP32 CAM is a powerful SoC developed by Espressif Systems. The ESP32 cam module chip provides built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. This feature of the module enables the creation of an easy project that can send and receive data over the internet or communicate with nearby devices.

How to Program ESP32-CAM Module

The module can be programmed using the popular Arduino IDE or the official Espressif IoT Development Framework. This makes it accessible to beginners and experienced developers. With a bundle of resources and libraries available to simplify development. It has the feature of creating innovative projects that involve wireless communication, image processing, and video recording.

The back draw of the Esp32 cam module is only that it does not have the connector for programming. FDTI to program is used to program this module. Many FTDI has a jumper that allows you to select 3.3V or 5V. Before programming make sure the jumper is in the right place to select 5V.
