so, okay, go for BT then.
and after like 2~3 months tell me "ok the price is too high, lets go back to esp8266."
so I guess I'll be stealing salary for the next few weeks just to wait for HW to layout the god damn schematics and get a devel pcb...
i thought they're providing esp32 somewhere late Sep?

@everslick
there is plenty of work befor you have a pcb.
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
the works are almost done during the prototyping process.
Clemens Kirchgatterer
@everslick
decide on IDE, test libraries

I was asked to study that bcm solution JUST FOR BT
making me kinda blue anyway.
in mood i mean
I wasn't connecting enough LEDs and Buttons because of the lack of IO pins during the prototyping process
the only thing left is I2S, cuz I don't get a DAC either.
and I was keep argue about "get me the god damn I2S DAC so I can start my work! even OK if I have to etch my own breakout board"
and my boss just ignore me...
last week, my boss said "Hey Victor, we don't have any progress this week! what you think?"
what I think? I've got almost nothing left to do...
sometimes you just can't understand what those management departments are thinking
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
does he know any kind of programming?
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
he writes crappy PHP
if that's considered "programming"
at least <?php echo "<html></html>"; ?> stuff
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
so he is used to wite a couple of lines and get result i the browser
it's still some programming, just at a different level
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
I dunno, I wrote the cloud service, the android app, and the mcu firmware.
total solution provider, eigh?
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
He expects to see something change all of the time :D
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
but I'm stall, I don't have the required hardware to continue my progress /_\
there's a 8051 used as an IO expander to control LEDs, Buttons, and some ADC. I just offload the work to a n00b fw engr. :-P
and now I have to review the hw schematics because the hw can't get the UART upload interface right...
really a headache
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
there is also this
no BT though
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
dunno, anyway, even now, I don't get the I2S DAC, so I dunno if my "dumping wav from SPIFFS to I2S" codes works or not.
this is like super high price
E30.99
he wants to have a BOM cost of around USD$15
rejected bcm solution because the module cost $5...
esp-wroom-02 is like $2
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
I have no idea how much esp32 will cost when out
it might be even more than $5
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
around $2 ~ $3
per 1k MOQ
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
that is for bare chips right?
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
esp-wroom-32
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
that is a good price
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
and because it would have enough pins, we can eliminate the 8051.
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
I expected it to be more
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
and just connect everything back to the mcu module
yeah if you want just 1, it's $5
