(Penguin) #1

Rev. B of the HiFive1 got announced!

Cool. Directly ordered it :slight_smile:

I know this is designed to be a micro controller but I’m interested in doing some operating system development with it. The price is right, I want to play with RISC-V and I just want to do simple some relatively basic things.

Does anyone know of any hardware that could be added to give graphical display capabilities? I’m not talking about adding a 3D graphics chip, just old fashioned stuff.

Hi, when can we expect an updated datasheet for the new chip and also documentaion for the board?

The “HiFive1 getting started guide” lists this display as supported (note: haven’t tried it myself):

I expect that docs will be available when the board starts shipping.
