@brucehoult

I just (pre-)ordered a board from the first link in your post over. It seems I may get it this month or primo 2020.

Apart from the passage "Access the Getting Started Guide and FreeRTOS Download at https://github.com/sifive/Amazon-FreeRTOS.", I can find no references to hands on practical product information (e.g. edge connector pinout etc.) for the board.

After a bit searching I found https://github.com/sifive/Amazon-FreeRTOS/blob/master/Getting%20Started%20Guide.pdf. I can see no table or figure of the edge connector.

The link https://github.com/sifive/Amazon-FreeRTOS/blob/master/DataSheet.pdf contains no more than the string "Place holder for Data Sheet".

A search on the web gave me no further concrete board info regarding the edge connector. If more technical information exists and is public, could you please post/link here.

(If the edge connector is fully physically identical with/to BBC micro:bit, please say so. There is plenty of documentation and connectors / breakouts to be bought for that board).

Thanks


brucehoult:
As you'd expect from how it looks, the connector is intended to be compatible with micro:bit accessories.

I'm told full documentation will drop when the board ships.

I had a play with some of the boards at the SiFive booth at the RISC-V Summit, but haven't had a chance to check them out properly.
