I have been considering trying my hand at creating either a SITCore board with an onboard Raytec device (link below) OR perhaps a Raytec board with a Gadgeteer connector.
I am writing to gauge interest (or for you to tell me such a thing already exists, so I don’t waste my time). I am a complete novice at Altium and friends, but I also have friends in low places with more skill, so this is kind of a lark for me, but I’d like it to be a useful lark.
I am leaning toward a Gadgeteer module, because no SBC that I create is likely to be deployment-ready. So if this is only useful for prototyping, it might as well be in a prototyping form factor.
The Raytec board has 1Mb flash and 256K RAM and I would be flashing it with an AT command set that you could use from TinyCLR. The Raytec already supports OpenThread, so this is a route for getting Thread (and NFC, Zigbee, and BLE5) on TinyCLR.
Theoretically this is already FCC and CE certified, but IANAL …
Any interest? Advice?
