as a point of correction — iirc — asr1002x is running closer to an rp2.  i don’t have one available to me at the moment, but i believe the code indicates as such.  comparing the ram, route, etc numbers leads me to believe this is true.

based on what i’m reading — the asr1002hx is closer to an rp3-based platform, again — comparing the numbers.  i could be wrong on this.
