The Wemos LOLIN32 is a ESP32 based IoT development board. It is available in the [1].

As the original page has no documentation at all, here are some findings about the hardware.

Flash Micropython

The Version for ESP32 works: http://micropython.org/download#esp32 Currently (as of 08-08-2018) there is no RTC support in the ESP32 branch! That means, you are also not able to set the time correctly. My super nasty hack is, to use NTP every time you need the time...

Beware: use esptool >= 2.2! I tried with esptool 2.0 first and got an endless boot loop.

The board has dedicated I2C Pins, but it does not look like a hardware implementation?! In Micropython you need to define either a hardware address or the Pins. I could not find any information about the hardware address of the I2C chip. Therefore I initialized I2C like this:

import machine
i2c = machine.I2C(sda=machine.Pin(21), scl=machine.Pin(22), freq=400000)
