Micro Python: Python for microcontrollers
Torsten came across an interesting project on Kickstarter called Micro Python by Damien George. He writes:
It has some very nice new design ideas as well as a totally new way of dealing with uC. I often do prototyping of a certain algorithm in python because it is very easy to debug and test. After that, I go an implement it in the uC-architecture of choice.
Just think of that you could directly use the Python code.
In addition it is a very nice read about the internals of scripting
languages and what need to be considered to run them on a small architecture like a uC. The founder seems very knowledgeable about pythons internals. He rewrote many internals to optimize it for a uC environment. He managed to speed up the execution by tenfold and brings python execution time almost as close as its C equivalents!
Nonetheless, you can execute almost arbitrary python 3 code.
Via contact form. Thanks Torsten!This entry was posted in dev boards and tagged Microcontrollers, python.
