Lilygo T-ETH-Lite: The ESP32-S3 Board with Ethernet and Optional PoE Support

CNX Software reports that LILYGO has released the T-ETH-Lite ESP32-S3, a development board that features WiFi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet connectivity.

The board includes a low-profile Ethernet RJ45 connector with a WIZnet W5500 Ethernet controller and supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) with an additional shield. It also comes equipped with a microSD card slot and expansion I/Os. The T-ETH-Lite ESP32-S3 is based on the ESP32-S3-WROOM-1 wireless module, which features an ESP32-S3 dual-core LX7 microprocessor running at up to 240 MHz and 8MB of PSRAM. It also has 16MB of SPI flash storage and supports WiFi 4 and Bluetooth 5 with LE/Mesh. The board has 2x 15-pin headers with up to 23x GPIOs, 2x UART, 14x ADC, touch interface, reset, 5V, 3.3V, and GND. It measures 59 x 28 x 11 mm.

LILYGO provides a range of Arduino samples for the T-ETH boards, including web server, firmware updates, MQTT server, and more. The T-ETH-Lite ESP32-S3 board is available now on AliExpress. In a home lab environment, the T-ETH-Lite ESP32-S3 with its Ethernet port and PoE support could probably be used to develop an interesting monitoring device, for example.
