Arduino Lab addresses MCU-based MicroPython tasks
We’re speaking Arduino Lab for MicroPython, and it lives at labs.arduino.cc. It’s described as “a easy, cross-platform IDE for MicroPython that helps any board with a serial REPL interface”, which suggests it may well additionally work with non-Arduino boards.
The workforce writes:
“We’ve created a partnership with OpenMV, which ported their laptop imaginative and prescient oriented digital machine to a few of our merchandise and enabled us to do unimaginable stuff with the Nicla Imaginative and prescient (for instance).”
“Increasing on this preliminary expertise we had been fortunate sufficient to accomplice with the creator of MicroPython, Damien George, to port the official the digital machine to plenty of Arduino merchandise. You could find our code right here. We’re positive you’ll going to like it!”
Notice, nevertheless, that this it’s nonetheless an “experimental software” and never an official product but. Caveat emptor (but it surely’s free).
Arduino says it will likely be posting experimental instruments there for folks to check out and provides suggestions.
You possibly can learn extra data on the Arduino web site. And you’ll learn extra in regards to the MCU-friendly language right here, for which a port for the Raspberry Pi RP2040 has been created.
Funnily sufficient, I coated the launch of MicroPython right here on Gadget Grasp again in 2013 – it was a KickStarter venture, by one Damien George. (It bust its £15,000 objective by elevating £97,803, by the way in which.)
