I configured Eclipse as described https://dl.espressif.com/doc/esp-idf/la ... setup.html.

Now I would like to upload some test projects (some examples located in IDF folder).


How can I connect my ESP32 to PC?
I have found some tuturials, but there were another board, with ready USB out.

P.S. I'm not so familar with SoCs, sorry if my questions looks obvious.

Regards!

At a high level, you will probably want to get yourself a USB->UART device. This plugs into an open USB port and provides RX and TX through the USB. These then connect to the RX and TX pins of the ESP32. At this point your PC can form a serial connection to the ESP32 and flashing of your program to flash memory on the ESP32 can be performed.

There are ESP32 development boards out in the market that contain these components on the board. All one would need then is a USB cable from the board to your PC. If you are just starting out, I'd probably recommend starting with one of those.
