Device manufacturers across a number of industries including smart home, industrial control, energy management, automotive, healthcare and education technology, rely on Espressif’s chipsets to power their products’ Wi-Fi functionality. One of such chipsets is Espressif’s ESP32-C2, which is a small, cost-effective Wi-Fi 4 RISC-V SoC that delivers an enhanced radio frequency (RF) performance due to its unique design and small package. The chip’s design allows it to target simple, high volume and low data-rate IoT applications, such as smart plugs and smart light bulbs. ESP32-C2 offers easy and robust wireless connectivity, which makes it the go-to solution for developing simple, secure and reliable smart-home devices. The chip also supports Matter, a smart-home connectivity protocol that provides interoperability between devices from different brands.

By becoming a Wi-Fi Alliance solution provider, with ESP32-C2 being a QuickTrack Qualified Solution, Espressif has made it easier for customers to achieve Wi-Fi CERTIFIED status for their products. This way, device manufacturers and end-product vendors can focus on their core offerings, expedite their certification process and reduce costs, while still maintaining the high-quality standards of the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED brand.
