about RIOT-os porting

Dear sir, I come from a Chinese company named Rockchip.(http://www.rock-chips.com/a/en/index.html) There is a dsp of CEVA-xm4 in our 1608-chip,and now, we want to porting the RIOT-os to this dsp. Can you support us? and tell us what we need to do? At the same time,We can provide you with the appropriate hardware, related document of the dsp.and so on. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks & Best regards

Hi Chen,

RIOT targets primarily low-end IoT devices, e.g. see devices defined in RFC 7228 [1].

At first sight, it seems to me your hardware is rather high-end in comparison: what are the RAM/ROM specs? What architecture? If it can run Linux, why don’t you want to use Linux?

This does not mean that RIOT cannot run on your hardware, but high-end IoT devices are not (our) priority at the moment. However, you are invited to look at the porting guide [2] to get an initial idea of the steps towards RIOT running on your hardware.

Hi again Chen, on second thoughts, I might have misread your email if you want to run RIOT on your DSP. Nevertheless some of my questions hold: what are the key specs of this DSP? Cheers Emmanue
