Bluetrum, a Chinese chip manufacturer known for its high-performance Bluetooth speakers and headsets, has designed an audio player microcontroller for audio applications and other general purposes. The new device named AB32VG1 is an Arduino Uno – like development board with a high-performance 32-bit core that relies on IP based on the RISC-V instruction set created by Bluetrum. The Bluetrum Bluetooth AB5301A RISC-V MCU is said to have a frequency of 120 MHz and is overclockable up to 192 MHz.
The AB32VG1 development board is a great competition for ARM-based development boards, no doubt. It comes with a USB port, a microSD card slot, and various GPIO headers that make interfacing with other devices possible. It is quite small in size but it has all the necessary feature that makes developing with it easy.
