M5Stack BASIC Kit, like its namesake, is a starter kit among the M5Stack development kit series. It’s a modular, stackable, scalable, and portable device which is powered with an ESP32 core, which makes it open source, low cost, full-function, and easy for developers to handle new product development on all stages including 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.

If you want to explore the fastest way of IoT prototyping, M5Stack development board is the perfect solution. Not like others, M5Stack development board is highly efficient, covered with industrial grade case and ESP32-based development board. It integrates with Wi-Fi modules and contains a dual-core and 16MB of SPI Flash . Together with 30+ M5Stack stackable modules , 40+ extendable units and different levels of program language, you can create and verify your IoT product in a very short time.

Supportive development platforms and programming languages: Arduino, Blockly language with UIFlow , Micropython. Regardless of what level programming skill you have, M5Stack would guide you in every step of the way to realize your idea as well as to the final productization. e If you ever played with ESP8266, you would realize that ESP32 is a perfect upgrade out of ESP8266. In comparison, ESP32 has more GPIOs, more analog inputs and two analog outputs, multiple extra peripherals( like a spare UART ). Official developing platform ESP-IDF has transplanted 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 processors, chips and some other slot components. The bottom part has a lithium battery, M-BUS socket and extendable pins on both sides.

Power on/off:
Power on: click the red power button on the left
Power off: Quickly double-click the red power button on the left
Note: By default, when USB is powered, it cannot be shut down

    As usual, it was perfect

    All are into the title

    M5Stack is awesome. I received my order ahead of the expected date.

    I really enjoy working with these devices. Where can you buy a device with so many options in such a small footprint. Good stuff.


    I am enjoyed.
