Rust (rustlang) on the Microchip SAMD51 Adafruit Metro M4 microcontroller board!

Heading over to GitHub provides the details that Paul (sajattack) has successfully ported Rust to the SAMD51 based on the ATSAMD Rust effort originally targeting the SAMD21.

The repo states it holds various things that support/enable working with atmel SAMD21 based devices, such as the Adafruit Metro M0, Trinket M0 and Gemma M0, using Rust.

In addition to the generic crates, there are also crates for popular ATSAMD21 based development boards. They aim to rename pins to match silk screens or Arduino pin assignments, add helpers for initialization, and re-export the atsamd21-hal crate.

Ed.: I’m sure the SAMD51 provides the extra flash and RAM to make Rust on Microcontrollers a more seamless experience (at least it is for CircuitPython).

The SAMD21 code is in the GitHub repo under Apache 2.0 and MIT licenses. You can see the SAMD51 pull request here.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
