Realtek RTL8720DN boards

Hi, just wondering if this unit might be an alternative to the ESP32? Could it possibly be flashed with micropython?

I noticed it on a bulletin from, and it triggered my interest because I had yet to see anything with similar capabilities to the ESP32.

More info here: ... ot-module/

Regards, AB

There's a fork for the older Realtek Ameba chips (RTL8195AM / RTL8711BN)
Not sure what their plans are for the RTK8720DN.
