When I use esp8266 as STATION mode and connect a speaker between VCC(3.3v) and GND pin a sound appears like "doop doop". what is this sound? I test this in version 01 and 12 of esp8266 module and this appear in both versions. maybe you ask me why I connect speaker to this pins. problem is that when I use pwm of esp8266 for playing a sound, this sound ("doop doop") appear to it also. What is problem? How can I fix this?

  • sounds like your power supply is weak. it might also have trouble driving an 8-ohm load (400+ma) plus the MCU. more capacitors would help as well.

  • Maybe the ESP resetting? It is really not a good idea, to connect a speaker like this.

  • No .I use different power supply and different battery. I use high pass and low pass filter but it does not fix yet. Also I use capacitor between VCC and GND. I'm wondered now.

  • If reset occurred LED must be on in a moment. I'm sure reset does not occur

It's called "noise" and is to be expected. Wi-Fi devices are generally very electrically noisy - and the ESP8266 is no exception.

  • I think noise sound is irregular but this sound is regular and periodic.

  • As regular and periodic as the transmission of packets over WiFi?

  • No. when I set esp8266 as station mode, without any connection and sending and receiving packet this problem occur

  • Just because you aren't sending packets doesn't mean packets aren't being sent. Wi-Fi is complex. There's constant chatter between stations and the AP.

  • It's true. your mean is packets send in environment such as mac address or Host name?
