how looks the roadmap in 2020 ?
i got several answeres to my questions in the past, here and there with espressifer's and direct conntact with espressif (2018),
one was from 6 Dez 2018
that 5 GHZ comes soonish's, also few other goodies and tech news.
i thinked and believe it, that 5GHz comes 2018 QIII-QIV but latest 2019 Q1,
cause we go now from 2019 to 2020 and we talked this in 2018, can you confirm again, that 5 GHz comes or
does it be on(ly at) the List (for) later?.
I think, 5 GHz comes with USB OTG on ESP32-S2 / S3.. but not in SOC itself?
Does we have to handle 5GHz over 3thrd hands? I hope not.
I can imagine that with "pwnd" 3-6-9 months everything threw everything behind. from the beginning ESP and IoT I had opted for ATECCxxxx, ( Olimex, Analoglamb ) so I am not very surprised at the use with ATECC608A and ESP32 in the new ESP32-WROOM-32SE
. Unfortunately, glitching is a sensitive topic - and that was also the case with ESP8266 and ESP32 - I hope espressif learned the lessons from it. I talked this theme in the past to espressif but there was no ear for this theme.
In what i am have the most interesst is USB Device ( OTG is fine ) and 5 GHz compatible with 2.4..
Is there progress in the 5 GHz direction? Has it been put on hold? Unfortunately, it was already said in January 2018 that it would be available soon. So far, there has been no report. Unfortunately. And in a few days it will be January 2020, two years ago.
IPO was very successful, maybe too successful? You hear and read very little of people at Espressif with whom you have always been in contact. The "Twitter relationship" with some was getting thinner and then it was a long time coming, unfortunately. There was a time in 2015 when Espressif could be reached. Unfortunately, today you wait in vain for answers and you feel a bit "used".
I understand that here and there company positions have been filled and new tasks are waiting for the previous contacts that were known, but I also have to say that I have not had any of the management levels for over a year (more than 1 1/2 years) heard of Espressif - let alone - that they answered my questions. Too bad. Angus or Jeroen were mostly the only ones who sporadically gave answers here in the forum. Sure Ivan is the Top in few technicals "tricks" with his answeres and helps allways.
I hope that it has nothing to do with the domestic political situation at the moment and that Espressif will always be free from political influences. But I'm afraid that exactly the cut happened here at times like IPO and investment.
Be that as it may - I wish Espressif all the best for the future and would be happy to continue to cultivate and maintain old contacts or that Espressif simply preserves and appreciates such contacts.
Espressif will appear as a CO exhibitor at eMbeddedWorld 2020
. After the successful IPO
, of course for 2020 I would like Espressif to come as a direct exhibitor. But that's ok, I'm happy that Espressif is coming again. Maybe this will result in some interesting conversations.
Unfortunately, I wasn't lucky enough to test a new ESP32-S2 or MARLIN B3. Anyway - many thought - but no - I got nothing this time
I hope that many suggestions from this thread will be used here, and I also hope that this or that will flow into the new chips. When it will be or what roadmap MileStones it will be, unfortunately you can not see.
Since 2020 will bring some changes, I think there will also be changes here. I hope that we can all survive and use them well.
I hope from espressif and for the future in the other chips from espressif, and from our all suggestions here in this thread, that espressif will return to the beginning as it all started
also an ear has for the community, more opensource and more open, communicated more directly with it and shows more accessibility and more contact as before.
I am a little disappointed with how it is currently going and how it went.
Company structures change - times change but technologies also change. I am not sure that we can hear everything that Espressif develops and publishes in the world. We watch many channels every day and read some political concerns that are also worrying. Espressif is currently very closed.
Nothing penetrates outside, nothing is speculated.
The future list here is fine and beautiful. But if it only serves hope and not implementation, it will have no future. People watch that too.
Like me - 5GHz since Oct 2017, Jan 2018 soonish's and now two years have passed and all other manufacturers are passing where Espressif was once a pioneer and figurehead.
I am sorry for the word and difficult for anyone who knows me.
I hope that changes and actions will follow soon.
missing the roadmap and the milestones from this thread.
