ESP32 Deep Sleep Ultra Low Power Coprocessor - We need to go deeper...Vote
We're taking an even deeper loop into deep sleep in this video. As always, big thanks to PCBWay for sponsoring this video - check them out at www.PCBWay.com.
We're following on the previous deep sleep deep dive video (https://youtu.be/YOjgZUg_skU) and taking a look at the Ultra Low Power (ULP) coprocessor.
The ULP coprocessor is a really interesting part of the ESP32 device. It's a really powerful additional processor that can run even when the main device is in deep sleep.
I had to learn how to use this to get deep sleep working well in my DIY e-Reader project (https://youtu.be/VLiCgB0odOQ).
There is a plugin for the Arduino IDE that will add support for the ULP assembler - https://github.com/duff2013/ulptool and there's also a C compiler that will generate ULP assembly code - https://github.com/jasonful/lcc

Thanks for watching - I'll see you in the next video!
A collection of slightly mad projects, instructive/educational videos, and generally interesting stuff. Building projects around the Arduino and ESP32 platforms - we'll be exploring AI, Computer Vision, Audio, 3D Printing - it may get a bit eclectic...
