The Beetle ESP32-C6 development board is a miniature Arduino-compatible IoT development board based on the ESP32-C6 chip, it has a compact design with dimensions as small as 25 x 20.5mm. Powered by a high-performance 160MHz RISC-V 32-bit processor, it supports multiple communication protocols including Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, Zigbee 3.0, and Thread 1.3.

This connectivity makes it ideal for various IoT networks and particularly suitable as a Matter terminal device. The board features integrated lithium battery charging management, eliminating the need for external modules and reducing overall project size, which is perfect for smart wearable projects. With ultra-low power consumption, including deep sleep mode at just 14uA, and the support for Wi-Fi 6, it provides lower latency and reduced power usage.
