The Arm reference software stacks supported by this community are designed to run on Arm supplied hardware or virtual development platforms.
The robotics Arm reference software stacks also target specific 3rd party boards. Questions about these platforms should be directed to 96Boards
The Juno Arm Development Platform (ADP) is a software development platform for Armv8-A, it includes the Juno Arm Versatile Express board and an Armv8-A reference software port available through Linaro. The Juno hardware delivers to software developers an open, vendor neutral, Armv8-A development platform with Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 MPcore for Armv8-A big.LITTLE, Arm Mali graphics processor for 3D Graphics Acceleration, and SoC architecture aligned with Level 1 (Server) Base System Architecture.
Technical Reference Manual
Fixed Virtual Platforms (FVP) for development of software for Armv8-A and Armv8-M. The platform includes the Architecture Envelope Model for Armv8 and a comprehensive set of SystemIP. Compatible with reference Linux and Android software stacks from Linaro. The FVPs are updated quarterly and model the latest published architecture specifications.
The AEMv8-A Base Platform FVP is a free of charge Fixed Virtual Platform of the latest Arm v8-A architecture features, including SMMUv3 and PCIe, and has been validated with Linaro kernels (available at linaro.org).
The Beetle IoT evaluation board is built around the Arm CoreLink SDK-100 System Design Kit processors which allows design teams to create IoT endpoints faster and with lower risk. Arm’s IoT subsystem with the Mbed IoT device platform is a complete reference system that reduces the complexity and risk of a SoC design for IoT endpoints. It is specifically designed for the use with Cortex-M processors and Arm Wireless IP.
The Cortex-M Prototyping System (MPS2) is an ideal platform for the evaluation and FPGA prototyping of Cortex-M based designs or IoT subsystems. It comes provided with fixed encrypted FPGA implementations of all the Cortex-M processors and an example design based on DesignStart.
The Arm Cortex Prototyping System (MPS3) board is an FPGA prototyping platform, which allows designers to design systems easily. It is part of the Versatile Express family. The board features a large FPGA to implement complex embedded designs (even including small Cortex-A class cores) and many expansion connectors to plug in other systems.

The Arm Musca-A1 board is based on the latest Arm Corelink SSE-200 Subsystem featuring two Arm Cortex-M33 processors. This board is the first Platform Security Architecture (PSA) development platform.
This design extends the Arm TrustZone architecture, from the processors to the whole system and utilizes the Arm TrustZone CryptoCell-312. This means that developers can use the latest security technology to implement the best protection for IoT devices.
