What comes after v1.1, and when?

Post by kwiley » Wed Oct 31, 2018 8:45 pm

I'm curious if there is any project to develop the next generation of PyBoard? Is so, what features are being targeted? What is the time table for such a project, if any?

There was a D-series announced a while back: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=4957

As far as i'm aware, It still isn't available yet.

That looks incredible. Thanks.

I wonder what it's going to cost. It really looks pretty remarkable, but that fact in itself is intimidating.

Apparently there will be a range of versions with different cost/capability tradeoffs.

The "D" series promises nonblocking WiFi access with the exceptionally low interrupt latency of a Pyboard. If it achieves this it will be awesome, knocking the Espressif boards into top hats :!: STM chips are much more capable in numerous ways.
