ARM Realview Industry Standard

ARM RealView Hardware Platforms

ARM RealView Hardware Platforms are suitable for architecture and CPU evaluation, hardware and software design, and ASIC emulation. They are designed to provide value to customers in a number of ways:

  • Early access to the latest ARM IP, including processors, AMBA interfaces, and PrimeCell blocks
  • Faster time to market achieved by fast software development early in the development cycle
  • Risk reduction in ASIC designs by prototyping custom hardware in FPGAs and connecting it to real processors and peripherals
  • Fast environment for application development for a number of operating systems

The RealView Hardware Platforms Selector (1.3MB pdf) white paper provides general guidance about the advantages and disadvantages of different boards, and shows the typical combinations of boards and the basic compatibility rules between different types of boards.

RealView Versatile Family Overview

Versatile is ARM’s latest generation family of boards. They are based on high density Q Strip® connectors from Samtec which allow several AMBA AHB or AXI buses to be routed between baseboard and daughter cards, also called "tiles".

The Versatile Family supports systems based on the ARM7TDMI, ARM926EJ-S, ARM1136JF-S, ARM1156T2F-S, ARM1176JZF-S and ARM11 MPCore and will be the reference architecture for support of new processors.
