Introducing Olimex’s ESP32-H2-DevKit-LiPo: Empowering IoT Enthusiasts with Affordable Connectivity


Bulgarian open hardware specialist Olimex has revealed its latest innovation, the ESP32-H2-DevKit-LiPo. This compact, cost-effective development board is specifically crafted for individuals keen on delving into Matter devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).

At the heart of the ESP32-H2-DevKit-LiPo lies the Espressif ESP32-H2 microcontroller. Sporting a single 32-bit core clocked at up to 96MHz, this chip boasts 32kB of static RAM, 128kB of on-chip ROM, 4kB of low-power RAM (LPRAM), and 4MB of flash memory, ensuring ample resources for diverse IoT applications.

The board’s versatility is further enhanced by its array of 19 GPIO pins and integrated peripherals, including ADC, SPI, I2C, I2S, UART buses, and PWM support. Such features empower users to customize and expand their projects with ease.

However, the ESP32-H2-DevKit-LiPo truly shines in its wireless capabilities. It boasts support for Bluetooth 5 Low Energy and IEEE 802.15.4 LR-WPAN, encompassing protocols like Thread, Zigbee, and the emerging Matter standard. This enables seamless connectivity and communication across IoT devices, paving the way for innovative applications.

Practicality meets convenience with the board’s design, featuring two USB Type-C connectors for programming and debugging, a lithium-polymer (LiPo) battery connector with charging circuitry, and connectors like Qwiic/STEMMA QT and UEXT for hassle-free expansion.

Despite its advanced features, the ESP32-H2-DevKit-LiPo remains remarkably affordable, priced at just €8 (approximately $8.66). Orders are now open on the Olimex store, with shipping slated to commence by the end of the month. Additionally, the hardware design files are available on GitHub under the reciprocal GNU General Public License 3, fostering a culture of openness and collaboration in the IoT community.
