ARM (64 bit) reference hardware

Starting with the 17.03 release ARM64 images are available. With the 17.03 release only the minimal (headless) image is supported, full (graphical) bring-up is expected to be done later in 2017. While the images in principle support various 64 bit ARM boards, Renesas Generation 3 SoCs are the main target.

The recommend reference boards for these images are the R-Car Starter Kit boards, however the Salvator-x boards are also support. For more information about Renesas R-Car starter kit please see the Renesas product page.
