Fit ESP-12 Breakout Board on breadboard

I have a ESP8266 ESP-12 WiFi Module (Full I/O) Breakout Board. But the board cover whole the width of breadboard, such that cannot insert breadboard wire. Alternatively, I have some pre-cut wires for breadboard, can be inserted under the breakout board to make it fit on breadboard.

I also add a breadboard power supply (3.3V selectable), a FTDI adapter and button for flashing firmware. And wires to lead out the GPIO16, 14, 12 and 13 for future use.

Here is the wires placement:


  1. How did you attach the ESP 12 to the breakout board? Did you just solder the leads of the breakout to the individual pins of the model?

    1. Yes. The breakout board have solder pad match with the layout of the ESP12, just solder the ESP12 over the pad. And also solder the header.
