I highly doubt that, all M5Stack likes to do is:
1. Buy overpriced connectors
2. Limit the “openness” and control the marked of modules
I love the idea and package of the M5Stack, but the connectors are just stupid, require high forces, difficult to find, … .
Maybe I will use other very common low-profile types, do it in FreeCAD, and KiCAD so we can get rid of that nonsense connectors for 3rd Party and custom modules.

Is there UIFlow module for RoverC? I cant find it in UIFlow but I saw UIFlow examples in the RoverC documentation. I think RoverC is great for education.
And if you look in this (work in Progress) document you can find some simple programming guide for it: https://github.com/Ajb2k3/UIFlowHandbook/blob/master/quickblockref.pdf
@aehiot said in RS485T and ACSOCKET and 120 OHM RESISTOR:
As I understand 120 Ohm terminated resistor for RS485 bus will be used only in one single end of the bus. I wonder if RS485T integrate R120 ohm and we connect many of them together, the data might be incorrect. I test with AC Plug if I don't use the RS485T the RX response is correct as in attached picture. After testing AC Socket for a while I found that if there is only one 120 Ohm terminate resistor on the bus, sometimes the Rx response is incorrect.
Anyone face the same problem?
I asked about this before but have been too busy to do any test with the 485 units.
If you are interested in continuing test, please let us know.
Also please consider creating a project log in hackster.io and record you discoveries.
@world101 said in How to control lots of Neopixel:
WLED (https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED) is a really great and easy way to control lots of neopixels. The author has done an awesome job and there are so many features supported now. I used it this past Christmas season to control 800 of the WS2811 string LEDs on the exterior of my home.
It runs on the ESP8266 and ESP32, but I haven’t seen anyone using an m5stack product as a controller yet. The most common platform used is the nodeMCU which is based on the ESP8266.
I only started trying to port WLED to the m5stack yesterday (I was inspired by this thread), but since I’m new to PlatformIO and I’m a weak programmer, I’m running into build/compile issues. I’ll let you know if I make any progress, but you could also look into the nodeMCU if you want something running quickly.
If there was a Micropython lib then i would be interested in testing.
I just tried with another cable: the microcontroller works with a very short cable or from a powered hub. Basically it reboots because of a brown-out due to a power consumption that is at the limit of what a plain usb port can deliver.
