New M5StickC PLUS2 Universal Board from M5Stack

The compact M5StickC PLUS2 universal board for wearable devices features 2MB of PSRAM, 8MB of flash memory and a 200mAh battery for extended runtime.

Embedded hardware company M5Stack announced an update to its universal microcontroller development board, replacing the original ESP-PICO-D4 system block with the ESP32-PICO-V3-02 and increasing RAM and storage capacity.

The M5StickC PLUS2 is a compact all-in-one gadget with a 1.14-inch 135×240 TFT display, built-in buttons, general-purpose input/output (GPIO) pins brought out on an expansion connector, and a Grove-compatible connector, I2C, UART, and GPIO signals, and built-in peripherals including a six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU), microphone, infrared transmitter, passive piezoelectric buzzer, and real-time clock.

Compared to the original, the biggest change is the switch to the ESP32-PICO-V3-02 system package - the available memory has been increased by 2MB of pseudo-static RAM (PSRAM) and the SPI flash memory has been doubled from 4MB to 8MB. The core architecture remains the same with two Tensilica Xtensa LX6 processor cores running at up to 240MHz, 520KB of static RAM (SRAM), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 low energy (BLE).

The M5StickC PLUS2 is available now from the M5Stack store for $19.95 with shipping.
