Not yet another esp-01 adapter/converter/breakout pcb
... but wait this one is different ... I need to completely convert the ESP-01 into a fully 5 volt device ... Here is what I have come up with ... I start with a 1117-33 to regulate the 3.3v voltage ... then I add a TXB0108 to handle bi-directional voltage translation ... I added a jumper from gpio0 to ground for programming ... and the whole pcb is about the size of the esp-01 (a wee bit wider) and is intended to be "Mated" with the esp-01 resulting in a permanate 5 volt esp-01 module ... the bottom mounting pins (breadboard friendly) can be installed or left off to be used with wires (shrink wrap the whole thing up) ... here are the images
here is a mock-up of what the mating would look like ...
