ARM is a processor architecture used in a variety of applications, such as:
- Handheld Computers (Nokia n900, n95, etc.)
- Network Devices (Genesi Efika MX Nettop, Wyse T50, CompuLab
- Project development boards (Beagleboard, Pandaboard, Quickstart,
etc.) Subnotebooks (Sharp Netwalker, etc.)
- Netbook/Notebooks (Genesi Efika MX Smartbook, Toshiba AC100, etc.)
- Ubuntu targets the ARMv7 and above Application Processor family
(Cortex A8, A9 and above). Currently the archive supports ARM EABI,
with an expectation of minimum compliance with the ARMv7+VFP ISA.
Where possible Ubuntu targets the Thumb2 instruction set.
Limited support for earlier instruction sets (ARMv5t, ARMv6) was available in early releases of the ARM port (jaunty, karmic).
- Much of the application porting is complete
- Installation images are available for selected boards
- kernels for a variety of sub-architectures are available
- Much of SMP validation complete
- Continued porting and optimization is underway
- OMAP: Texas Instruments OMAP
- Tegra (AC100): Thosiba AC100 Nvidia Tegra 2
- IMX53 QuickStart: Freescale IMX53 QuickStart Board
- Server images (for OMAP3/4 so far) ARM/ServerInstall
