Re: How to remove PWM signal from the pin?

you dont need to de-init the pin. just set the PWM to 0.

Re: Can the output current of the esp32 GPIO be reduced?

In my application, the ESP32 needs to drive an external contactor, which draws 29mA from the pin. It works, but I don't know if that can safely be done for 1-2 hours, or if I risk damaging the esp32 and better use a relay (there is only very little space, unfortunately). The typical method is to us...

Re: Help! ESP32 burnt by Motor Drive Module.

Thanks. I will try that. Could you tell me the physics theory of the small resistor? Do they protect the ESP32 from shortcut or something else? resistors limit current. the higher the value the more they limit. For example, if you set a GPIO pin high, but that pin is shorted to gnd for whatever rea...

Re: is there any issue using io0/io4 for i2c?

Not sure, Personally I steer clear of using GPIO0. Throw a scope on the SCL/SDA lines and have a look.

Re: Help! ESP32 burnt by Motor Drive Module.

its possible. Another option to try on a new motor driver board to help is to put a 100 or 220 Ohm resistor in series with your 2 control wires and PWM wire to your driver board.

Re: is there any issue using io0/io4 for i2c?

IO0 is a special pin that already has a pullup on it. Its used to program the part. I suggest looking at the data sheet first so you can understand what pins to use and not to.

Re: Help! ESP32 burnt by Motor Drive Module.

It all depends on how far it crashes. Best way is to protect the outputs from the ESP32

Re: Help! ESP32 burnt by Motor Drive Module.

I have used this one, may not be what your looking for but it could prove out the issue because it has opto Isolators as inputs to protect your device.

Describe what your measuring with your A/D pin and anything attached to that pin.
