Now you can add Internet and powerful WIFI networking capability to your project. ESP8266-12 (ESP-12) is the enhanced version of ESP8266 WIFI module. The ESP8266-12 has an integrated 80 MHz microcontroller with a full WiFi capability (both as client and access point) and TCP/IP stack with DNS support as well.
Compared to ESP8266, The The ESP8266-12 onboard antenna impedance matching was modified to improve output signal strength and quality. Both stability and RF interference resistance has been improved to reduce the data losses during transmit and receive. It has the additional six pins with IO and SPI ports which allow more freedom to the developer.
ESP8266-12 has powerful on-board processing and storage capabilities that allow it to be integrated with the sensors and other application specific devices through its GPIOs with minimal development . It is designed to occupy minimal PCB area.
