M5Stamp: Ultra-compact microcontroller for your next IoT application
M5Stamp the mini controller with powerful computing power. With its user-friendly development kit, M5Stack has created an excellent system for a wide range of IoT projects. No matter whether you want to program automated applications for your smart home or for a professional industrial trade: The devices from M5Stack offer the best prerequisites in terms of quality and score points with their versatility thanks to several expansion modules.
And the best thing is there are optimal boards and controllers for every need. If you need a particularly handy model for your prototype, we recommend the M5Stamp series. These are battery-powered and impress with their extremely compact design, which makes them perfect for particularly small IoT devices such as sensors or wearables. In addition, the controllers also have many technological advantages that will certainly benefit you in the realisation of your project.
M5Stamp C3 Mate, C3U Mate and Pico: the controllers have these technical features on board
The flagship models of the series are the M5Stamp C3 Mate, the M5Stamp C3U Mate, and the M5Stamp Pico. All three controllers convince with their relatively strong computing power. The M5Stamp C3 Mate and C3U Mate models use the ESP32-C3 32-bit RISC-V, a single-core processor that clocks at up to 160 MHz. The two Xtensa® 32-bit LX6 microprocessors installed in the M5Stamp Pico even have a maximum clock speed of 240 MHz.
Apart from that, the microcontrollers of the M5Stamp series are equipped with many other features. The M5Stamp C3 Mate and the M5Stamp C3U Mate can communicate via WiFi as well as Bluetooth and each have, among other things, a programmable RGB LED, a USB-C interface and 13 or 14 IO interfaces. The M5Stamp Pico supports WiFi and has, among other things, a DC/DC connection, twelve GPIO connections, a programmable RGB LED and an RF circuit that ensures reliable wireless communication.
Practical: With all three M5Stamp models, you can use the UIFlow tool developed by M5Stack to program your applications. Compatibility with Arduino and MicroPython is also available.
These accessories are available from Berrybase
To enable you to use your M5Stamp controller as flexibly as possible, M5Stack has developed a large software and hardware ecosystem with high-quality expansion components. The STAMP IO, for example, is an IO expansion board that uses an I2C communication interface and is equipped with eight input and output channels. In addition, the module comes up trumps with a servo and an RGB LED control, among other things.
