Because I was unsatisfied with the quality of the generic ESP32 boards that come in the D1 Mini32 form factor at some after starting to offer pre-assembled QuinLED-Dig-Uno and QuinLED-Dig-Quad boards I decided to design my own and basically start producing it in house where I have full control over all components and final quality!
This has become the QuinLED-ESP32 board which is now available in three variants, the AB (Antenna Board), AE (Antenna External) for when you need a bit more range or better signal and the ABE (Antenna Board + Ethernet) which adds a top board to form a stack which has a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port on it so you can hardwire your projects!
Next to that my custom design adds a USB-C port, PTC fuse protection, onboard USB-to-serial programmer with auto-reset circuit, 800mA LDO with robust capacitor network, etc.

Also perfect for generic usage!
Although my ESP32 boards are mostly known for coming with the QuinLED-Dig-Uno and QuinLED-Dig-Quad boards, they also work perfectly as a stand-alone ESP32 modules! Especially if you are looking for an External antenna or Ethernet version it can often be hard to find one readily available in this form factor.
You can even easily make it a POE enabled solution by adding a little POE extractor block, making it one of the most affordable “POE capable” Ethernet boards on the market today!
