Intel Edison MCU SDK Update?

Jump to solution

Hi!

Any news about an update of the https://software.intel.com/iot/hardware/edison/downloads MCU SDK?

The available release is dated May 5th, 2015 and hasn't been updated since.

The MCU SDK looks very promising but faces https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/545142 major limitations, such as:

  • The current Viper OS release does not support unloading an MCU user application after it is loaded. The user must reboot the device to unload the downloaded binary.
  • The MCU application update requires a Linux reboot.
  • Due to the limitations of the current Viper OS release, the MCU OS tick value is 10 ms.
  • Currently, the SPI feature is not supported for the MCU.

The /message/309285# 309285 Edison MCU roadmap? thread received the usual flat PR statement "The MCU roadmap is not currently available publicly" last Jun 2, 2015.

Hi,

 

 

Currently, there aren't updates related to the release of an MCU SDK update. We'll pass your suggestions to the team in charge of developing this SDK. Hopefully, these limitations will be fixed in future releases.
