Anyone who follows Expressif will know they make some pretty cool chips.
Today, I noticed on my news feed a new ESP32 Module, the ESP32-WROOM-DA. There is plenty of new things happening in this market but what grabbed me was not only the unique the design, but why the unique design.
The chip has 2 antennas, one capable of generating a stronger signal while I can only assume at a higher power usage. The device uses the lower signal antenna unless the device loses connection, then it will switch over to the second attenna for a better signal.
It seems a pretty small thing, but even in my smart home I constantly fight with signal strength. I look forward to testing these out!
