I am looking for help creating a new platform for an upcoming product I am releasing based on the Renesas DA14706 MCU. What is the going bounty for such help?
The project is pretty cool, and I have a budget ($500 ish) for help.
Ill strike out alone if there is no interest
The Retro Watch
I did one internally for Renesas / Dialog DA1469x (BLE SoC) at https://github.com/maxgerhardt/platform-dialog but never finished it because I think the SDK had licensing issues so I can’t just publish it in some public repo for PlatformIO to download. Is that the case too for the framework you want to support?
As I am the author of platform-ch32v (RISC-V WCH CH32V) and platform-gd32 and maintainer of a platform-raspberrypi fork, I guess I have quite the experience.
Hi Maxgerhardt, I also give some try to add a new platform, but looks not work. which based on sifive to support a new chip in PIO.
if there any useful guideline? the official document of PIO looks not working well
( Custom Development Platforms — PlatformIO latest documentation)
Very interesting, thank you for the response…let me check the sdk licensing and your github to see if its uesful.
@maxgerhardt defintiley interested in going a little deeper in this discussion.
Here is the project Im working on: The Retro Watch
I dont see anyway to DM on here…
Just clicking upen the profile icon should reveal a message button.
Looks interesting. It has both an FPGA and a Dialog DA14706? The FPGA doesn’t instantiate a softcore?
If you have any particular problem / error message, you can createa a new topic. Otherwise I recommond looking through reference platforms (atmelavr, ststm32, tons of others), SCons manual and the PlatformIO core code. Some of it I also ‘documented’ here.
It has a DA14706 for the main processor and a Efinix T20 FPGA to supplement for video processing.
The DA is pretty capable on its own so I doubt the FPGA will be on too much due to power concerns and is mostly just in the design for “thats cool af”
They are connected via two memory mapped qspi busses and the DA14706 has a gpu which can render a framebuffer from the QSPI bus…its pretty slick
And sorry, I must be inept. I have failed to find the message button.
