Re: New MicroPython release: v1.11

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable about ESP32 can confirm, but I believe that this enables FreeRTOS threads (tasks) to use multiple cores, and that MicroPython threads are based on FreeRTOS threads. You can use the _thread module (which is uhh undocumented... see https://docs.micropython.org/en/...

Re: ESP8285 ESP-01M

You might find a bit more information from the folks at Seeed (where I believe it was first sold?) or Tindie where an alternative adapter is available . Without a standard-ish connector those modules seem to be a little awkward though...the breakout board that comes with them alleviates that to some...

Re: Need help with Makefile for ATMEL SAMV7

Love the enthusiasm; so keen you offered help twice ! ;) Although some further progress has been made I believe Damien wants to sort out a few more technical issues before letting it loose. I'll keep at him to release it but I suspect Damien won't until it's at a level of quality he's happy with...p...

Re: [TinyPICO/ESP32] TinyPICO is live and available for purchase!

Yeah, it's pretty cool to see! Bitluni's work outputting VGA from an ESP32 is pretty awesome.

There's also Brian Lough's shield to connect a TinyPICO to an RGB Matrix display.

I'm also aware of a couple of other boards being developed for the TinyPICO, I'll post here when they're ready!

Re: SONY Spresense

I did bring up the Spresense in the January Melbourne MicroPython Meetup . The hardware is really interesting (six cores!) but, as you might gather in the video :), there was some skepticism when Sony's name was mentioned. Apparently they don't have the best track record for good microcontrollers - ...

Re: Need help with Makefile for ATMEL SAMV7

I asked a similar question on Adafruit CP forums (https://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=152352), what would it mean to havd a minimal support of SAMD based boards on MicroPython. Scott (@tannewt) was kind enough to give me some advice in implementing the SAMD port; in short, some of the ...

Re: Sipeed and ESP32 board

Yeah, Sipeed are doing some really interesting work with that Kendryte K210 RISC V micro! For reference, MaixPy is their MicroPython fork and documentation is available in Chinese and, a little less complete, in English. Their twitter account is a good source of news at the moment. I'm really excite...

ESP32 documentation

Do you have an ESP32 documentation issue that you want addressed? Please let me know if it's not listed here! I want to try and tackle these documentation improvements soon...

Either respond in this forum or just raise a ticket on that repo. Thanks!
