M5Stack BASIC Kit, like its namesake, is a starter kit among the M5Stack development kit series. Its modular, stackable, scalable, and portable device is powered with an ESP-32 core, which makes it open source, low cost, full-function, and easy for developers to handle new product development on all stages include circuit design, PCB design, software, mold design and production. This Basic kit provides a friendly price and full-featured resources which makes it a good starter kit for you to explore IoT.
Ever wanted to explore the fastest way of IoT prototyping, M5Stack development board is the perfect solution. Not like others, M5Stack development board is highly productlized, covered with industrial grade case, andESP32-baseddevelopment board.ESP32is a hybid Wi-Fi & Bluetooth chip contains a dual-core and 4MB of SPI Flash . Together with 30+ M5Stackstackable modules, 40+extendable units, and different levels of program language, you can create and verify your IoT product in a very short time. Supported development platforms and program languages: Arduino, Blockly language withUIFlow,Micropython. Regardless of what level program skill you have, M5Stack would guide you in every step of the way to realize your idea as well as to the final productilization.
If you ever played with ESP8266, you would realize that ESP32 is a perfect upgrade from ESP8266. In comparison, ESP32 is full-feathered with more GPIO, plenty of analog inputs and two analog outputs, multiple extra perpherials( like a spare UART ). Official development platform ESP-IDF have planted with FreeRTOS. With dual-core and real time OS you can get more organized code and much high speed processor.
M5Stack Basic is consist with two separable parts. the upside part has all kinds of processor, chips and some other slot components. Thebottompart has a lithium battery,M-BUSsocket and extendable pins on both sides.
The newly-produced M5Core replaces the screen with better display performance and higher viewing angle, so it has some compatibility problems with the old Arduino library. When using the old library for screen driving, it will produce reverse color display. You can open the Arduino. The library management option will upgrade your M5Stack library to the latest version (after 0.2.8) to solve this problem.
