Description

M5Stack recently launched the new AIoT(AI+IoT) Camera powered by Kendryte K210 -an edge computing system-on-chip(SoC) with dual-core 64bit RISC-V CPU and advanced neural network processor..

M5StickV AI Camera possesses machine vision capabilities, equips OmniVision OV7740 image sensor, adopts OmniPixel®3-HS technology, provides optimum low light sensitivity, supports various vision identification capabilities. (e.g. Real-time acquisition of the size, type and coordinates of the detected target ) In addition to an OV7740 sensor, M5StickV features more hardware resources such as a speaker with built-in I2S Class-D DAC, IPS screen, 6-axis IMU, 200mAh Li-po battery, and more.

It is able to perform convolutional neural network calculations at low power consumption, so M5StickV will be a good zero-threshold machine vision embedded solution. It is in support with MicroPython, which makes your code to be more concise when you use M5stick-V for programming.

USB Drive problems

UnitV/M5StickV/M5StickC/ATOM may not work without driver in some systems. Users can manually install FTDI driver to fix this problem. Take the win10 environment as an example, download the driver file that matches the operating system, decompress it, and install it through the device manager. (Note: In some system environments, the driver needs to be installed twice for the driver to take effect. The unrecognized device name is usually M5Stack or USB Serial. Windows recommends using the driver file to install directly in the device manager (custom Update), the executable file installation method may not work properly).

SPI/I2C dual communication mode

<mark?>Note: There are two versions of M5StickV currently released by M5Stack. When programming, users need to configure differently according to their corresponding pin mapping. The specific differences are as follows.

  • In the M2StickV circuit design of the I2C single-mode (blue PCB) version, MPU6886 only supports the user to configure its communication mode to I2C, and its pin mapping is SCL-28, SDA-29.

  • In the SPI/I2C dual mode (black PCB) version of the M5StickV circuit design, MPU6886 supports the user to configure its communication mode to SPI or I2C, and its pin mapping is SCL-26, SDA-27., when using, you can switch CS Pin level to switch modes (high level 1 is I2C mode, low level 0 is SPI mode)

  • The specific pin mapping is shown below:
