Object recognition using Artificial Intelligence has never been this convenient ever before.
Sipeed MaixCube is an all-in-one development platform based on the M1n module which is powered by the Kendryte K210 core. It is equipped with a camera, TF card slot, user buttons, TFT display, lithium battery, speaker, microphone and an expansion interface. This provides a great platform for everyone to start learning about AI development.
The KendryteK210 which acts as the main control chip for the MaixCube, is very powerful. The module has a built-in 64-bit dual-core processor chip and 8M of on-chip SRAM. It has outstanding performance in AI machine vision and Auditory applications. It has a variety of hardware acceleration units such as KPU, FPU, FFT, etc. and the total computing power can be up to 1TOPS, which can conveniently realize machine vision/hearing algorithms of various application scenarios, and can also perform pre-processing work of voice scanning and voice data output.
Users can use MaixCube to easily build a face recognition access control system.
A Wide Range of Sipeed Modules (SP-MOD) Supported
Through the SP-MOD interface on the MaixCube which is a standard 2.54mm 2×4 Pin female header, with Vcc, GND, and 6 signals, you can connect to various SP-MOD modules and extend your AI projects further.
Please note SP Modules are sold separately and are not included as part of this kit

What is MaixPy?
Before getting to know about the MAIX product series, it is very necessary to understand the MaixPy project. It can help you quickly use the Al module.
MaixPy is a project of porting Micropython to K210 chip (running Micropython parser on K210), that is, users can finally control the function of K210 chip through Micropython programming. For example, you can directly call the facial recognition algorithm built into the firmware through Micropython programming, and finally generate a Micropython file, which can be downloaded to the Flash chip, and run on it. In addition, MaixPy supports the normal operation of MCU and integrates machine vision and microphone arrays to rapidly develop intelligent applications in the field of AIoT with extremely low cost and practicality.
What is the Development Environment on MaixCube?
By default, the development board has burned MaixPy firmware (the firmware source code is open source and can be downloaded from Github). MaixPy has developed a variety of functional libraries that developers can call directly. Maix series products use Maix IDE developed by the Sipeed team. The software is free of installation. After downloading, you can directly use MaixPy to use Micropython script syntax. Developers can edit the script on the computer and upload it to the development board to execute the script directly on the development board. The IDE can view camera images in real-time and save files to the development board, which is very convenient for development.
