Hi SivaKrishna, Edward,

Porting Zephyr to such SoCs is doable, but it need to workout support for Class-A Cortex processors from ARM.
The support itself is quite easy since other RTOS does support them, but you won't support the major features of these cpus like the MMU for memory protection, ...

Such support seems so have some supporters, but none has done the work yet.
If you find time and support for such feature, implement it and the community will certainly review it.

Anyway, like other replied, it will also need Schematics of the boards, but personally I don't think it blocking since there is Mainline U-Boot and Linux support for these boards.

The Raspberry Pi 3 is Cortex A5, we currently support a few Cortex M versions. Adding support for another architecture is a major undertaking. This is just the SoC issue. The next problem with porting for the Raspberry Pi 3 board is that you don't have schematics. This means you can't support any of the hardware on the board. The schematics for Raspberry Pi boards are proprietary and are not released to the public at all. Do you work for Raspberry Pi Organization? If not, I doubt you can get the schematics.
