Introduction: HOW TO UPLOAD PROGRAM TO ESP-01 USING ARDUINO
In this tutorial, I am going to show how to program ESP8266 - 01 using Arduino board
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
1.go to preferencespaste this link there http://arduino.esp8266.com/package_esp8266com_index.json
2.then go to tools-boards-board managerthen install esp8266now go-to tools- boards
now go-to tools- boards select generic esp8266 board
Step 4: Circuit Diagram
Connection information -
ESP8266 VCC - 3.3volt -
ESP8266 GND - GND of Arduino
ESP8266CH_PD - 3.3volt
- ESP8266 RST ground it for reset
- ESP8266 GPIO 0 - groundit at the time of uploading program.
RX, TX Connection for Arduino
- ESP8266 RX - RX of Arduino
- ESP8266 TX - TX of Arduino
-connect rst to gnd off Arduino
go to files-examples-esp8266-blink
select board and port then upload the sketch to your board this will took upto3 minutes maybe so wait patiently.
after uploading connect(then remove) the reset pin to ground and remove pin0 from ground then repower the board u should see blinking led on esp board
