How can I program esp32 after assembly on a PCB?

We have a project on new production which is based on PCB including esp32. How can our hardware engineer program it after PCBA process by supplier?
  • Jumper the device to start into the serial boot loader, connect the UART to an off-board USB-UART adapter,
  • Run the well-known python tool for downloading just as you would with the dev board.

Or get the chip to tristate the flash pins, contact them with something else and directly write the flash.

Or program the flash chip before soldering it in place.

Next time around have a connector, edge fingers, or pads for a pogo-pin spring contact jig.

What Others Are Asking

Why are there no BGA chips with triangular tessellation of circular pads?

A triangular tiling would allow π⁄√12 or 90.69% of the footprint to be reserved for the solder balls and the surrounding clearance, while the ubiquitous square tiling only allows π/4 or 78.54% of the footprint to be used. Why are there no BGA chips with triangular tessellation?
