Starting with the 17.03 release, ARM64 images have been made available. 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 supported. For more information about Renesas R-Car starter kit please see the Renesas product page. The following optional extras may be of interest.

If you currently don’t have access to any of the below supported hardware, the amd64 images can be run on a virtual machine.

The current ARM64 reference device is the Renesas R-Car M3 Starter Kit Pro (M3SK/m3ulcb). See the Setup guide.

Alternative ARM64 reference devices are the following:
