ESP8266 or ESP32 for automotive use

Postby serkam » Mon Jan 08, 2018 10:13 pm


I need to know if ESP8266 or ESP32 can be reliably be used in automotive designs.

Along higher temperatures than domestic environment ( up to 90 ºC at direct sunlight ), it should resist physical shocks, vibrations and noisy RFI ( Radio Frequency Interference).

Is there anyone that had previous experience in such automotive application?

You could use them in automotive, the chips are very reliable if you design the hardware right and the programming is robust.
If you operate across wide temperature ranges, you need to run RF calibration more often on power-up. The entire board design and components also start to matter a lot.
As for EMI - it is a two-way road. If your design puts out a lot of EM emissions, then it would also absorb a lot of it from other devices. So by ensuring a layout where you do not radiate a lot of EM waves out of your design, you can ensure that the design is EMI immune as well.
