  • Enhanced Connectivity: Combines 2.4GHz Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5(LE), and IEEE 802.15.4 radio connectivity, allowing you to apply the Thread and Zigbee protocols.
  • Matter Native: Supports building Matter-compliant smart home projects thanks to its enhanced connectivity, achieving interoperability 
  • Security Encrypted on Chip: Powered by ESP32-C6, it brings enhanced encrypted-on-chip security to your smart home projects via secure boot, encryption, and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE)
  • Outstanding RF performance: Has an on-board antenna with up to 80m BLE/Wi-Fi range, while reserving an interface for external UFL antenna
  • Leveraging Power Consumption: Comes with 4 working modes, with the lowest being 15 μA in deep sleep mode, while also supporting lithium battery charge management.
  • Dual RISC-V Processors: Incorporates two 32-bit RISC-V processors, with the high-performance processor running up to 160 MHz, and the low-power processor clocking up to 20
  • Classic XIAODesigns: Remains the classic XIAO designs of the thumb-size form factor of 21 x 17.5mm, and single-sided mountmaking it perfect for space-limited projects such as wearables


Seeed Studio XIAO ESP32C6 is powered by the highly-integrated ESP32-C6 SoC, built on two 32-bit RISC-V processors, with a high-performance (HP) processor with running up to 160 MHz, and a low-power (LP) 32-bit RISC-V processor, which can be clocked up to 20 MHz. There are 512KB SRAM and 4 MB Flash on the chip, allowing for more programming space, and bringing more possibilities to the IoT control scenarios. 

XIAO ESP32C6 is Matter native thanks to its enhanced wireless connectivity. The wireless stack supports 2.4 GHz WiFi 6, Bluetooth® 5.3, Zigbee, and Thread (802.15.4). As the first XIAO member compatible with Thread, it's a perfect fit for building Matter-compliant projects, thus achieving interoperability in smart-home.

To better support your IoT projects, XIAO ESP32C6 not only provides seamless integration with mainstream cloud platforms like ESP Rain Maker, AWS IoT, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, but also leverages security for your IoT applications. With its on-chip secure boot, flash encryption, identity protection, and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), this tiny board ensures the desired level of security for developers looking to build smart, secure, and connected solutions.

This new XIAO is equipped with a high-performance onboard ceramic antenna with up to 80m BLE/Wi-Fi range, while it also reserves an interface for an external UFL antenna. At the same time, it also comes with an optimized power consumption management. Featuring four power modes and an onboard lithium battery charging management circuit, it works in the Deep Sleep mode with a current as low as 15 µA, making it an excellent fit for remote, battery-powered applications. 

Being the 8th member of the Seeed Studio XIAO family, XIAO ESP32C6 remains the classic XIAO design. It is designed to fit the 21 x 17.5mm, XIAO Standard Size, while remains its classic single-sided components mounting. Even being thumb-sized, it amazingly breaks out 15 total GPIO pins, including 11 digital I/Os for PWM pins and 4 analog I/Os for ADC pins. It supports UART, IIC, and SPI serial communication ports. All these features make it a perfect fit for either space-limited projects such as wearables, or a production-ready unit for your PCBA designs. (check out our Fusion one-stop prototyping and manufacturing services to explore what support you can get!). 



Please note that the classic pin heads for XIAO are not included in this product as we want to avoid component wastes (we got this input from the community and we want to contribute a bit to a greener earth). If you want to equip your XIAO ESP32C6 with the pinheads, you can click here to add it to your cart with ease. 


It's super developer-friendly to get started with XIAO ESP32C6 too. Compatible with both Arduino and ESP-IDF, it offers developers the way you prefer to tinker around. Moreover, we also provide the starter kit along with courses for beginners to quickly tap into the world of electronics.
