Seeed Studio XIAO ESP32C6 with Matter support starts at $5.20

Mar 29, 2024 — by Giorgio Mendoza 401 views

SeeedStudio has recently introduced a new addition to their XIAO Series development boards. This latest board brings support for Wi-Fi 6/Bluetooth 5 and integrates Matter compatibility due to its ESP32-C6 integration.

This product stands as the first ESP32-C6-based development board by SeeedStudio and the 8th device in the XIAO Series. It features a high-performance processor operating at up to 160 MHz, alongside a low-power counterpart at 20 MHz, with 512KB SRAM and 4 MB Flash.


The XIAO ESP32C6 integrates 4 GHz Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5 (LE), and IEEE 802.15.4 radio connectivity, facilitating seamless compatibility with protocols like Thread and Zigbee. This versatility extends to native support for Matter, enabling developers to build compliant smart home projects.

Equipped with an onboard antenna offering up to 80m BLE/Wi-Fi range, the XIAO ESP32C6 delivers reliable RF performance. Additionally, provision for an external UFL antenna provides flexibility in antenna selection. Efficient power management is facilitated by four working modes, including a deep sleep mode consuming as low as 15 µA. The device also supports lithium battery charge management for optimized energy utilization.
