The FireBeetle 2 ESP32-C6 is a low-power IoT (Internet of Things) controller board designed based on the ESP32-C6 chip, making it suitable for smart home projects. The ESP32-C6 features a high-performance 160MHz RISC-V 32-bit processor, supporting communication protocols such as Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, Zigbee 3.0, and Thread 1.3. This enables seamless integration intoIoT networks with various communication protocols.The FireBeetle 2 ESP32-C6 supports multiple power supply options, including Type-C, 5V DC, and solar charging for lithium batteries managed by a solar power manager, which optimizes the power usage and ensures efficient energy management, providing a range of choices for deployment.

Multiple transmission protocol support to expand wireless connectivity

Boasting support for multiple communication protocols, the FireBeetle 2 ESP32-C6 expands wireless connectivity options. By supporting Wi-Fi and Thread protocols, it enables the creation of Matter Wi-Fi terminal devices and Matter Thread terminal devices, facilitating seamless communication and collaboration among multiple systems and platforms in smart home setups. Additionally, the FireBeetle 2 ESP32-C6 supports BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and Zigbee communication protocols, making it suitable for use as a Thread border router, Matter gateway, or Zigbee bridge when combined with other MCUs.
