Introduction: Detouchable Converter Board for ESP-07 and 12 With Pogo Pins

Picture of Detouchable Converter Board for ESP-07 and 12 With Pogo Pins

I made a Detouchable Converter Board.

For example, a converter for 2mm pitched SMD ESP-07 or ESP-12.

It can mount on 2.54mm pitched breadboard as a 16 pins DIP.

These are the Pogo Pins.

They will be solderd on the PCB.

Step 3:

Pogo Pins and pin headers are soldered.

The Detouchable Converter Board set on a breadboard need only the space as 16pins DIP.

Step 4:

ESP-07 is mounted on the board and can be unmounted easily.

Step 5:

Picture of

ESP-12 can be also mounted.

Simply perfect.
For myself I thouht to contact the ESP-12 from below and fix it with a bar, but from the side is of course more stable and easy to adjust.

It seems a very good solution for programming and testing a ESP-12 before productive use. Of course for prototyping I will use a NodeMCU. But as soon as a prototype ans its software works, I will simply put a naked ESP-12 into this holder, to program it before soldering to the circuit.

It reminds me of the nice Epromer and the Textool-Socet It had for my C64. Youth come back :-)

That's just what I was looking for :-)
