The NodeMCU ESP8266 Devkit is based on widely explored esp8266 Syem on Chip from Expressif.
NodeMCU is an open source IoT platform, firmware and development kit which makes it easy to prototype your IoT project with a few lines of Lua Script code.
It integrates GPIO, PWM, IIC, 1-Wire and ADC all in one board. Power your developement in the fastest way combinating with NodeMcu Firmware.
It also combines features of a WIFI accesspoint and station and microcontroller so you can use it directly without a separate microcontroller.
It uses simple LUA based programming language.
- Arduino-like IO which allows you to code as if you were using an Arduino, but interactively in Lua script.
- Event-driven Nodejs style network API for network applications, which facilitates developers writing code running on a 5mm*5mm sized MCU in Nodejs style to greatly speed up your development time.
- Low cost
