Interesting. I wouldn’t call the Cortex-M4 a “real-time” MCU. Embedded, certainly, but not Real-Time. I think you’d have to look at the Cortex-R4F for real-time.

I’m still (sort of) waiting for the open source community to support either the TMS320 DSP family or the SHARC DSP family. The Aleph was Blackfin, but that’s only about half way to SHARC or TMS320 DSP performance.
