Arm Versatile Express¶
The vexpress_* board configuration supports the following platforms:
Juno development board
Fixed Virtual Platforms¶
The Fixed Virtual Platforms (FVP) are complete simulations of an Arm system, including processor, memory and peripherals. They are set out in a “programmer’s view”, which gives a comprehensive model on which to build and test software.
The supported FVPs are available free of charge and can be downloaded from the Arm developer site 1 (user registration might be required).
The default configuration assumes that U-Boot is bootstrapped using a suitable
bootloader, such as Trusted Firmware-A 4. The u-boot binary can be passed
into the TF-A build:
make PLAT=<platform> all fip BL33=u-boot.bin
The FVPs can be debugged using Arm Development Studio 2.
Juno is an Arm development board with the following features:
Arm Cortex-A72/A57 and Arm Cortex-A53 in a “big.LITTLE” configuration
A PCIe Gen2.0 bus with 4 lanes
8GB of DRAM
