Hopefully this is not a stupid question, but a few days ago I plugged in my ESP board , blue led blinked and then later the board was not responding. Nothing out of the ordinary installed , but then it started to heat up, WIFI module got quite warm. Now I cannot access it, just wondering if I could remove the WIFI chip(ESP8266mod A1Thinker) and attach it to my Arduino Uno to act as a WIFI shield.
If there is any info as to how to do this I would greatly appreciate any direction. I know that this is an inexpensive board and could be replaced for a few bucks , but I like to repurpose where I can, thanks.
