Hi Christoph,

Yes, you can start with a copy of the board closest to your custom board and update the files to match close to your product, preferably the board name is easily relatable to the board going on sale.

As you have already started with Zephyr, I will assume you have referred to

Subject: [Zephyr-devel] Adding a custom board

Dear All,


we’ve just started with Zephyr but already love it.


I want to add our custom board (which is not, but will be on sale in future). What’s the recommended practice?

As it is based on Nordic’s PCA10056 I could just copy the directory and refactor everything to “MakaioHub”, if you agree. Or we could .gitignore it.


Please let me know
