Hello Joel,

first a confirmation from my side: I had to do with a customer board
that used a Picozed 7030 just recently. It worked well. If you need a
more detailed configure line, I can look it up.

I don't think that adding more BSP variants would be an optimal solution
if no adaption is necessary for a specific variant. That will only lead
to a longer build time if you want to build all BSPs.

How about adding a bit more information like a list of boards the BSP
can handle in the user manual? We have a big Board Support Packages
section for that:

I did something like that when I extended the imx BSP to support
i.mx6ul/ull too:

Best regards
