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: Matt Thomas is the maintainer of NetBSD/evbarm.
23: ### CPU types
25: The evbarm port can be built with a variety of CPU options. There are
26: three main variables: the instruction set, the endianness, and whether
27: there is hardware floating point. By default the CPU type is "earm",
28: and this implies little endian (el when explicitly stated), and soft
29: (emulated) floating point. Another example, suitable for Raspberry PI
30: 2, is earmv7hf, which is the v7 instruction set, little endian,
31: and hardware floating point.
33: Typically, various boards are best compiled with a CPU type that
34: matches the board's CPU and floating point support, but generally a
35: lower CPU instruction set version is workable on a newer board. See
36: build.sh and look for aliases for the evbarm port.
38: Some processors can operate as arm or the 64-bit ARM variant, aarch64, which is supported by
41: ### Kernels and userland
43: The evbarm userland can be used on any system that can run code of the
44: CPU type used for the build. Typically, a particular board requires a
45: kernel for that board.
47: ### anita and qemu
49: anita can be used to test builds. evbarm-earmv7hf uses "qemu -M
50: vexpress-a15" and evbarm-aarch64 uses "qemu -M virt". (Information on
51: how to test emulated versions of other specific hardware is welcome.)
