Wow, and that's with software floating point
need to run this test on the new chip :)

any you guys know the repository which is used for Home IOT project , and can manage the ESP- enabled wifi devices . easy add or remove wifi device and apply the specific scenario

so day two of esp8266/IoT-class. four working dev. boards build, two are dead. not bad... :-)

thanks. I'm glad we got it running. and for the first time that I do it it runs quite smoothly. but still three days to go with lots of room for desasters... :-)
current problem is that ch340g seems to die very easy. don't know why, but we have 3 or 4 going dead on soldering them on the boards. (not me soldering)

static discharge? Are the participants grounding themselves?

could be. room is quite static active and our setup is a little bit on the home-brew-cheapo-side

In my old high school electronics class, while we didn't have the static wrist straps, we did have metal power strip at the top of the desk, which is the outside is grounded, and our teacher asked us to touch it before grabbing the soldering iron.

we put alu foil on the tables, grounded it and a sheet of paper on top. so quite hobo but should do the job.

I have never ever grounded myself at home and I have done a whole lot off all kinds of soldering th and smd without a single fail due to static
not telling anyone that it's the proper way. just stating observations

Don't disagree, but it depends on the environment, some are very static prone, some are not. Most components are not sensitive, some are. If you touch a door knob and get a discharge, you should ground yourself before touching components.

that's the way the room acts: walk from desk to desk and you get zapped.
I would vote to temperature abuse.
