Realtek RTL8720DN boards

Post by iotman » Mon Jan 20, 2020 8:29 am

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 seeedstudio.com, and it triggered my interest because I had yet to see anything with similar capabilities to the ESP32.

More info here:

There's a fork for the older Realtek Ameba chips (RTL8195AM / RTL8711BN)

Not sure what their plans are for the RTK8720DN.
