Espressif systems launched their first-ever RISC-V wireless SoC last year. But the company hasn’t stopped here as it recently announced its second RISC-V processor with ESP32-C6 single-core 32-bit processor clocked at up to 160 MHz with both 2.4 GHz WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5 LE connectivity.
Espressif systems CEO explains the multidimensional strategy to launch a new processor would engage more buyers as it uses expansive connectivity across various devices. ESP32-C6 is basically the same as ESP32-C3 except for the WiFi 6 radio. It also appears that ESP32-C6 doesn’t embody the optional embedded flash anymore. The embedded flash block has been removed from the block diagram.
ESP32 chips are formed with the ESP-IDF framework which improves the Optimization and performance of the devices. The company will also make EST-Hosted and ESP-AT firmware available for customers wanting to control the new processor from an external host. It would be the first time that such tech is instilled and these ESP32-C6 chips are faster and help in increasing engagement from the networks. The mains consideration of the company has always been to outperform its previous standards, and with such swift moves, the company could definitely achieve that as per the customers’ demands.
