Annex WI-Fi RDS (Rapid Development Suite) is a version of the “basic” language developed to run on low cost ESP8266 and ESP32 WIFI devices..

Main functionalities:

  • Includes an internal IDE so can be programmed directly using your web browser without any additional utility (even with your phone/tablet).
  • Syntax  highlighting with context sensitive Help
  • A programmable web server including file server
  • Supports OTA (over the air) update.
  • Support async events (interrupts, timers, web access, UDP, ….)
  • Breakpoints, immediate execution of commands, display of variables, single step.
  • A basic interpreter with floating point variables (double precision) and string variables, multidimensional arrays (float and string), user defined subroutines.
  • Access to any available I/O pin for input/output, PWM and Servo.
  • Errors Handling .
  • Support TCP (HTTP) GET and POST for communications
  • Support for UDP for communications.
  • Support for sending Emails using SMTP SSL servers
  • Support for AJAX communications
  • Support for ESP-NOW communications
  • Support for MQTT communications
  • Support for FTP communications
  • Accompanying utility suite includes Flasher, File Manager, HTML Converter, Backup/Restore to bin or zip, integrated Serial Port Monitor, OTA (over the air) update server and UDP Console.
  • IMU / AHRS Fusion algorithms 6 DOF and 9 DOF (Madgwick and Mahony)
  • 4 Channels PID controller
