Lego NXT port

Post by fma » Sun Aug 24, 2014 6:20 pm

Do you think it could be possible to port micropython on Lego NXT brick? It runs an ARM7 proc... I' don't have a clue about features of that proc.

It looks like the NXT is similarly spec'd to the teensy. See: http://mindstormsnxt.blogspot.ca/2006/0 ... brick.html
256K flash, 64K RAM, no FPU.
It looks like it has Thumb, but not Thumb2, so the viper/native code generators would probably not work.

The EV3 (NXT 2.0) appears to have gotten an ARM9 processor running linux, and has 64MB RAM, 16 MB flash.
