I've posted this unofficial guide to the Pyboard D. Some of the content is based on my testing, the rest on information from Damien (reproduced with his permission).

Any additions/corrections/PR's/comments from those with boards are welcome.
Now I just need to be able to buy one! :(

This seems to be a very well kept secret...

Does anyone know if the Pyboad D is (like the ESP8266) capable of having Wifi Station and Access Point at the same time?

The 1DX Wifi Chip can do that: https://wireless.murata.com/type-1dx.html
(Network AP and STA dual mode)

So I thing micropython will be able to do that too?

Does the pyboard D use the same build as pyboard 1.1 ??

and...

Can someone who has one let me know the result of this:

Code: Select all

import socket
dir(socket)
dir(socket.socket)

No. Some code is stored in external QSPI flash.

Thanks, but I don't understand what you mean ??

I don't have the board yet, still in transit.

Is the build / flash process different from the pybboard 1.1 ?

OK, great just received my pyboard Ds.

I have the 4GB EMMC connected, but unless I am missing something it does not appear to be giving me 4GB and is only showing 2MB of storage ??

Code: Select all

cd /Volumes/PYBFLASH
df -h
Filesystem      Size   Used  Avail Capacity iused      ifree %iused  Mounted on
/dev/disk1s1   2.0Mi  100Ki  1.9Mi     5%     512          0  100%   /Volumes/PYBFLASH

You are just seeing the internal flash. At the REPL what does sys.path show? I'm wondering if it might be visible at the Python level.

I wonder if the device needs to be explicitly mounted?
