New MCU support?

Postby plink » Wed Nov 30, 2022 7:36 am

Hey everyone,

This is my first post here so please forgive me if it's not the right place.

I have an MCU which I haven't encountered before, and it seems to more or less be a 1:1 clone of an STM32 chip. I'm trying to figure out if chibios will/can support it but I really have no idea how to go about that. Given the closeness to an stm32, is it worth simply trying to spin things up and see how it goes?

Hi,

Support for some clones is already present in community repository, you should check if it is one of those.

Thanks for the reply Giovanni!

I did a quick search for "RY72" (the chip series) but there's no results. My impression is this MCU is relatively new - I wasn't able to find any information beyond what the manufacturer supplied :cry:

You could try to use the STM32 port, it depends on how much it is really compatible. Probably not really that compatible.

Thanks. I'll try the YOLO approach and see how far I can get. If it works, I'll post back here to confirm.
