Porting Linux on K210?
Are there any active efforts to port Linux on K210?
I am thinking about a very small Linux version that is able to use/share the SRAM at the same time with the KPU
Perhaps something in the lines of μClinux? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ΜClinux)
@adioltean Actually if the KPU's disabled, you can get 8MB RAM.
@loboris Agree that FreeRTOS is normally good enough for an embedded system.
ucLinux (which is now part of Linux) is difficult to fit in 6 MB but possible. Normally 8 MB is considered the typical minimum.

You can hardly expect all of that to work with 6MB of RAM! I think RTOS is better choice...
@latyas Linux comes with a standard application development/deployment, extensible networking stack including WiFi, console, SSH, standard toolsets, etc.
@adioltean Supporting linux seems cool, but, why?
Thanks. Any timeline?
Also, what stops the first chip to support Linux? As far as I can understand the 6 MiB SRAM can be shared across the KPU and the GPU

@adioltean I think the second generation chip will support linux. K210 is for AIoT...
