Multitasking Possible?

Postby marcus007 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 5:20 am

Is MultiTasking Possible on OpenMV?
e.g 1 thread handles UART
2nd thread handles camera processing

like this is it possible?

MicroPython added a feature for this but I'm pretty sure we don't enable it. Just make a timer interrupt call back that moves bytes into a larger fifo buffer the main thread can process. See the timer module for how to do interrupt call backs.
