ARM Linux Embedded Systems

From Lazarus wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page shall offer a hardware selection guide for those seeking an ARM based (eg low power) platform for FPC and want also to benefit of the capabilities of the underlying Linux OS. Development kits are listed below their respective targets(mentioning the additional features in the I/O column)

Also this will link to a FPC Embedded Nutshell page, which holds readymade 'hello world' samples for various systems, to be able to tryout FPC on your system before having to undergo a full installation and a possible build/crosscompile etc.

Products are listed alphabetically.
