1: [[!template id=port
16: NetBSD/evbarm is the port of NetBSD to various evaluation and prototyping
17: boards based on CPUs implementing the ARM architecture. NetBSD/evbarm also
18: supports some specific embedded system products based on prototype board
21: ### CPU types
23: The evbarm port can be built with a variety of CPU options, corresponding to the
24: [large array of ARM CPU architectures](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARM_architecture#Cores).
25: There are
26: four main variables: the word size, the instruction set, the
27: endianness, and whether there is hardware floating point. By default
28: the CPU type is "earm", and this implies aarch32 (32-bit), earmv5 cpu
29: architecture, little endian (el when explicitly stated), and soft
30: (Emulated) floating point. Another example, suitable for Raspberry PI
31: 2, is earmv7hf, which is aarch32, the v7 instruction set, little
32: endian, and hardware floating point.
34: Typically, various boards are best compiled with a CPU type that
35: matches the board's CPU and floating point support, but generally a
36: lower CPU instruction set version is workable on a newer board. See
37: build.sh and look for aliases for the evbarm port.
39: Through NetBSD 8, the evbarm port has supported exclusively the
40: aarch32 (32-bit CPU) sub-family of the ARM architecture. Some
41: processors, such as many supporting the armv8 CPU architecture, also
42: support a 64-bit instruction set, referred to as aarch64. This is
43: sometimes referred to as a distinct port, [[NetBSD/aarch64|aarch64]],
44: with code in src/sys/arch/aarch64, but it is built as the evbarm port
45: with aarch64 cpu type, and available as the alias evbarm64.
47: Note that MACHINE_ARCH=aarch64 currently refers to the A64 instruction
48: set and the aarch64 architecture, built for the armv8 architecture.
49: (Note also that armv8 is the first architecture to support aarch64, so
50: this will not be an issue until at least armv9.)
52: ### anita and qemu
54: anita can be used to test builds. (In addition to anita, install qemu and dtb-arm-vexpress from pkgsrc.) The release subdirectory should follow the naming convention on the autobuild cluster, used below.
56: - evbarm-earmv7hf uses "qemu-system-arm -M vexpress-a15"
57: - evbarm-aarch64 uses "qemu-system-aarch64 -M virt"
58: - Information on how to test emulated versions of other specific hardware is welcome.
60: ### invisible.ca builds
62: NetBSD developer Jared McNeill provides [builds of NetBSD-current for a vast variety of hardware.](https://www.invisible.ca/arm/) In addition to the standard build, these images have board-specific uboot contents. See also /usr/pkgsrc/sysutils/u-boot*.
64: ### Board specific information (often including installation information)
65: - [[Allwinner sunxi family SoCs|Allwinner]]
66: - [[BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black, and PocketBeagle|BeagleBone]]
67: - [[NVIDIA Tegra|Tegra]]
68: - [[ODROID C1 and C1+|ODROID-C1]]
69: - [[Raspberry Pi 1, 2 and 3|Raspberry Pi]]
71: ### SSH configuration for installtion
73: The default configuration will connect to the local network via DHCP and
74: run an SSH server. In order to use the SSH server, we must configure
75: users. This can be done by writing to the SD card's MS-DOS partition.
77: Create a creds.txt file and use:
79: useradd user password
81: <!--TODO: Additional configuration options are available on creds_msdos.8-->
86: **NOTE**: This list is incomplete. For a full list of boards, please see the [GENERIC DTS files](http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/~checkout~/src/sys/arch/evbarm/conf/GENERIC).
