Dose LINX support the Raspberry PI Zero 2 W?

The Raspberry PI Zero 2WThe Raspberry PI Zero 2W

The Raspberry PI Zero 2W was released on October 28, 2021. It uses the BCM2710A1 of the Raspberry PI 3 as the SoC. Can the LINX toolkit support it?

Hi, 

 

Yes,  it's looking good 🙂  I've been able to load the LINX runtime on the PI Zero 2 W and deploy a few test VI's ! 

 

The sense hat example from the MediaMongrels RPi-LINX-Addons toolkit runs OK!

 

Cheers,

Andy.

There likely will be some problems with the GPIO configuration. Linx is currently rather hardwired to expect the Raspberry Pi 2B GPIO layout, which for most things works for Raspberry Pi 3 and 4 too, but the Pi Zero 2W might have a different GPIO configuration.

Good comment Rolf,

I tested a few channels using the blink advanced and digital read N channels examples.

I've not tried all the channels yet, but it looks to be the same mapping as the PI 3B+.

The SPI Loopback Benchmark example is running OK.
