Arduino Core for Bouffalo's RISC-V MCUs

Discord | Matrix | Telegram

This is community made Arduino Core for Bouffalo Labs RISC-V MCUs. The target is to make this core compatible with AVR and ESP32/ESP8266 Arduino Core for easy migrating of existing projects.

Supported MCUs

  • BL602
  • BL604

How To Install

In Arduino IDE, go to File > Preferences, and add to Additional Boards Manager URLs following: Then open Tools > Board > Boards Manager, search for Arduino for Bouffalo Labs RISC-V MCUs and install it. (Also, then don't forget to pick your BLXXX based board)


Some parts of this core are based or inspired by work of Arduino, Espressif and Bouffalo Lab teams and their communities.


Is this part of Nutcracker challenge?

Partly. This effort is for me (gamiee) a way how to explore Bouffalo SDK and the MCU itself. So it will help a lot later when reversing the blobs.

Can I use this for testing BL IOT SDK?

At the moment, yes. Most of the components are precompiled to static libraries and all headers are available. (Although, the WiFi component isn't compiled (yet))

Supported operating systems

Windows and Linux are tested and working fine. MacOS should work fine too, but it's not tested.
