Energia to BeagleBone's PRUs?

Recommended Posts

Someone was working on having Energia compile programs to the native Linux target, but I haven't heard anything about the PRUs being a target of such stuff.  I'm not so sure it would even make sense to use Energia on the PRUs.  From what I know of them, they shine primarily as optimized coprocessors to the master Linux instance.

PRU's sound somewhat like the N2HET peripherals on the RM4/4F: they can respond to events, internal or external, in a real-time / deterministic manner.


Linux, much like Windows, is not well suited to being an RTOS though either can provide a robust front-end to the back-end.
