M5Stack and AWS Collaborate on IoT Development Kits

Dec. 24, 2020
M5Stack CORE2 for AWS IoT Edukit is based on the M5Stack Core2, coupled with Microchip ATECC608A Trust&GO secure element, supported by FreeRTOS, Arduino, MicroPython, and UIFlow.

M5Stack announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services, to ease the creation of IoT applications using AWS services using the CORE2 ESP32 IoT Dev Kit for AWS IoT Edukit. The Core2 for AWS is a feature-rich, plug-and-play extensible and secure hardware kit for learning and building a wide range of IoT applications. It comes equipped with a Microchip ATECC608A Trust&GO secure element, in addition to the existing features of the standard M5Stack Core2 and M5GO Bottom2.  

The main unit is equipped with a 2.0-inch capacitive touch screen for the human-machine interface, with a built-in vibration motor that can be used to provide haptic feedback or alerts. Onboard RTC module provides an accurate time of day. Power is supplied through an AXP192 power management chip, to monitor and control power attributes of the device. The included TF card slot supports microSD cards up to 16GB. The on-board speaker is paired with an I2S digital audio interface power amplifier chip to reduce signal distortion and provide clearer audio output. There are independent physical power and reset (RST) buttons on the sides of Core2 for AWS, with 3 programmable touch buttons on the front of the screen. 

The M5GO Bottom2 for AWS adds additional features and security for IoT applications. The MPU6886 provides 6-axis internal IMU and temperature, the SPM1423 digital microphone captures audio for recording or creating voice applications, 10 individually programmable RGB LEDs via SK6812 to create customized and animated light effects, a 500mAh lithium-ion battery provides power on the go, the onboard Microchip ATECC608A Trust&GO crypto-authentication chip is pre-provisioned with secure keys to simplify connectivity to AWS and accelerate cryptographic computation.
