Two months ago at the RISC-V Summit, the first Vegaboards with NXP RV32M1 and Arduino-compatible pin bars were shown, now there was a first batch of free test patterns for developers. “From spring” then universities can buy the developer boards, so they use students for projects.
At NXP, Robert Oshana and Markus Levy stand up for RISC-V development. In the RV32M1-Vega, however, NXP combines the RISC-V cores RI5CY and Zero-RI5CYdeveloped by the ETH Zurich PULP team with an ARM core: a Cortex-M4F for applications and a Cortex-M0 + for Bluetooth 5.0 – (BLE) communication. The RV32M1 is intended for developers and should not be sold in a standard form as a serial product.
