New ESP32-H2 SoC with Integrated IEEE 802.15.4 Radio and Bluetooth 5.2 (LE) Connectivity
Espressif Systems Co., Ltd. has announced the release of ESP32-H2 with integrated IEEE 802.15.4 radio and Bluetooth 5.2 (LE) connectivity, operable in the 2.4 GHz band. This new SoC comes with an integrated DC-DC converter that enables ultra-low-power and has a single-core, 32-bit RISC-V microcontroller that can be clocked up to 96 MHz. Moreover, the combined availability of IEEE 802.15.4 and Bluetooth LE connectivity enables building devices for the upcoming Matter protocol that intends to bring interoperability for Smart-Home devices.
ESP32-H2 SoC has a 256 KB SRAM and has 26 programmable GPIOs with support for ADC, SPI, UART, I2C, I2S, RMT, GDMA, and PWM. It takes advantage of Bluetooth 5.2 technology that enables building devices for LE Audio and continues to facilitate building secure connected devices through hardware security features such as ECC-based secure boot, AES-128/256-XTS-based flash encryption, digital signature, and an HMAC peripheral for identity protection, as well as cryptographic accelerators for improved performance. Moreover, ESP32-H2 will support Thread version 1.x and Zigbee 3.x.
