I'm new to the ESP8266
I want to use it with the Arduino IDE.
I have a CP2102 and a separate 3.3V power source (I tested - can deliver 500mA without voltage dropping)
Can I connect the CP2102 TX/RX/RST/DTR pins straight to the ESP8266 or must I use a 5V/3.3V level shifter?
I'm configuring the hardware according to the Minimal hardware Setup for Bootloading and usage on https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino
