And this is exactly why I believe Edison is destined to fail in the IOT/Maker space.
I realise Intel is a commercial enterprise and wants to keep things quite until announcement such as estimated new releases, feedback to people such as Kurt and myself who have logged issues with SPI etc.
If Intel is serious about edison, a lot more information will be forthcoming and they will treat edison as if it is in an open community.
Having worked for large multinationals like Sun and Digital, I realise the public facing Intel employees in this forum have to operate under severe limitations and none of this is directed at them.
Hi primiano and rest of the guys @Frederic Philips, @Stan_Gifford,
We apologize for the late reply, information was being gathered to provide a more accurate answer.
There is no shared memory API. The shared memory that exists cannot be accessed, it is used by the MCU driver and the Viper kernel internally. Regarding IPC, there are only 3 usable channels.
Hopefully, in the future there would be some more documentation about the board and its features.
