Never say never..
But not likely...
The 972 used TI DA710 processors (2) but the technical challenge is the supporting software..
burden for creating, debugging and validating the software is simply too expensive...
If the unit sales qtys were higher and spread over more models than it become more feasible from a financial return viewpoint...
Just my $0.02... 👍😉
