This AI development kit is intended for developers looking to prototype and transform existing factory operating systems into Edge, AI and HMI applications or other complex IoT systems.

The AIoT kit is a feature-rich development tool based on the ESP32-S3 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 Low Energy system-on-chip (SoC) featuring AI acceleration capabilities. The SoC also features 512KB SRAM, supported by 16MB of quad flash and 16MB of octal PSRAM.

The kit also contains a 2.4-inch (320 x 240) SPI touchscreen, two digital microphones, a speaker, a USB Type-C port, and a high-density PCIe connector for hardware expansion. The ESP32-S3-BOX-3 also delivers a speech-recognition framework that provides users with an offline AI voice assistant with far-field voice interaction, continuous recognition, wake-up interruption, and the ability to recognise over 200 customisable command words.

The ESP32-S3-BOX-3 has been designed to be a versatile device that supports the Matter protocol, enabling users to utilise it as a Matter-over-Wi-Fi/Thread end-device, a Thread border router, or a Matter gateway.

Additionally, the ESP32-S3-BOX-3 supports working with the open-source, home-automation platform and home assistant, providing users with a powerful, local home controller that rivals Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Its AI capabilities and low power consumption make it a suitable choice for smart home automation, delivering connectivity and control over a wide range of devices.

Espressif’s AIoT Cloud platform, ESP RainMaker, can be used with the ESP32-S3-BOX-3 to configure GPIOs and offline voice commands while also offering remote control via phone apps or third-party voice assistants.

Espressif’s ESP Insights software provides a remote diagnostics solution to monitor the functioning of the ESP32-S3-BOX-3 in the field, thus ensuring optimal performance at all times.
