Let’s start a series of posts using an ESP32 CAM board. I had this one from Amazon Canada.
I choosed this one, because it will avoid me the pain of wiring.
So, 1st test, let’s turn the Flash ON and then OFF.
Let’s start creating a new PlatformIO project, and selecting the right board: AI Thinker ESP-32CAM
Once the project is created our ini file contains the following information:
; PlatformIO Project Configuration File ; ; Build options: build flags, source filter ; Upload options: custom upload port, speed and extra flags ; Library options: dependencies, extra library storages ; Advanced options: extra scripting ; ; Please visit documentation for the other options and examples ; https://docs.platformio.org/page/projectconf.html [env:esp32cam] platform = espressif32 board = esp32cam framework = arduino
And now let’s add some code to make the flash work. And, my only note here is that the Pin is 4.
