Python snakes its way to the Arduino Portenta H7 @arduino @micropython

Adafruit 2019 3297

Board Iso-Withlogo

Looks like Arduino will be supporting Python in some way very soon, maybe?! In the promo video it lists “MicroPython” and on the overview page “MicroPython / JavaScript via an interpreter” it’s available for pre-order for $99.

This is a powerful STM32H747XI dual Cortex®-M7+M4 32bit chip that runs pretty fast – SDRAM was added, and flash storage. If you’re going to want to get TinyUSB running on this thing, we have support for the STM32 H7 series.

The Portenta kinda reminds us of the Pyboard D-series with STM32F767 and WiFi/BT from MicroPython, it has similar connectors on the bottom, fast chip, Wifi/BT, etc.

Alasdair Allan over on has the best coverage so far, go check out the full article.

We tried to get more info before, during, and after CES.

Prior to CES, on November 22, 2019, Luisa Castiglioni from Arduino PR emailed us about some upcoming news. We asked for more info, but did not hear back so we emailed on the 29th of Nov, then the 2nd of Dec. We did not receive any news or updates. After the news of the new board we reached out again on Jan 8, 2020. We were told there was a problem sending the emails and were sent this PDF, and for questions we were directed to email Dario Pennisi. We have not heard back yet. However, it appears this might be Dario from Arduino in the Teensy forums posting about the new board.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, 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.
