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