Wireless module NodeMCU: Development board based on ESP8266

The ESP8266 is a low-cost Wi-Fi chip with full TCP/IP stack and MCU (Micro Controller Unit) capability. This small module allows microcontrollers to connect to a Wi-Fi network and make simple TCP/IP connections using Hayes-style commands. The low price and the fact that there were very few external components on the module attracted many hackers to explore the module. This chip is perfect to start a new IOT (Internet of Things) project.
