Can we run an operating system on GR-PEACH? If Yes, Will BSP & technical support be provided ?

I would like to port embedded linux or any other OS , on which I should be able to run opensource softwares such as OpenCV . Thanks .

Question relating to:

GR-PEACH is an Mbed enabled platform which combines the advantages of the Mbed ecosystem and Arduino UNO form factor.

The Renesas RZA1H can run XIP Linux OS. This is running the Linux kernel from Serial Flash. See this link for information http://renesasrulz.com/renesas_forum_home/rz/m/mediagallery/

The GR-PEACH has limited amount of Serial Flash (8MB) and no SDRAM( not needed for XIP Linux).

There is a unique GR-PEACH/RZA-H/M/L RAM and Flash configuration so it depends on the size your binary image of OS and applications. The Current GR-PEACH uses the 10MB RAM on Chip with NO external DDR RAM or options. This will be the memory boundary for your OS/OpenCV/application. There are other Renesas platforms that are used with Linux, OpenCV and BDTi Optical Flows.

I dont think the GR-PEACH can hold an OS. My project also needs opencv, I found a mbed-opencv program :

I combiled it, showing much errors. also I found a project on opencv :

Check this, share me ur findings, I also struggling.
