New Arduino Protenta H7

  • The New Arduino Protenta H7 is very interesting as it potentially could use it's second core to run Espruino (Boot core is an M7 has a secondary M4 core). What is really interesting is the board is now available but they have not got the advertised Javascript functionality working yet. See link

    It is a pricey board at ~$100, but would be very interesting if someone could get it working on Espruino. Any opinions on the difficulties or deal breakers with the board?

  • Interesting... I wonder what they're planning on using as the JS interpreter. Maybe JerryScript?

  • Hi at @Gordon, I forgot about this post, I made 3 years ago and the interesting rabbit hole it sent me down.

    Yes the PortentaH7 advertised as being ABLE to run JavaScript, but nothing was ever adopted by Arduino as official support for Javascript. They did very well with supporting OpenMV for micro-python support. It actually runs fairly well if you like Python.

    Time for me to try Espruino, hopefully we can get in touch.
