TI CC1352R

Hi,

Does anyone know if the new dual-radio chip from TI, the CC1352R, would be a good candidate for uPy porting?

From the spec sheet: CC1352R SimpleLink High-Performance Dual-Band Wireless MCU ... features a 48 MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4F Processor, 352KB of In-System Programmable Flash, 256KB of ROM for Protocols and Firmware, 8KB of Cache SRAM (Available as General-Purpose RAM), 80KB of Ultra-Low Leakage SRAM. http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/cc1352r.pdf

I am not familiar with MicroPython minimum requirements and have a vague understanding of the porting process. There are some details at https://github.com/micropython/micropython/wiki/FAQ. For reference, the uPy-compatibile CC3200 features a ARM® Cortex®-M4 Core at 80 MHz, RAM Up to 256KB.

I am not really sure if there are going to be enough resources to run micropython and an rtos on this chip or not. I'd like to compile it and see what happens but really having trouble wading through the makefiles. I am trying to combine the minimal micropython port and a UART example from CodeComposer which creates a single task in tirtos. I am not having any luck right now. Anyone have any tips or attempted this already?

Someone from emf camp here? I noticed they got micropython running on an msp432 which I think uses the same build tools as the 1352. I was hoping to take the generated makefiles from CCS and integrate them into micropython but it looks like emfcamp guys rewrote/heavily customized them. Any help appreciated.
