This section provides an overview of the ARM Prospector development system. The Prospector development system is available in two versions:
The Prospector P1100 uses the StrongARM SA1100 processor.
The Prospector P720 uses a Cirrus Logic 7212 (an ARM720T processor variant).
Table B.1 lists the differences between the P1100 and P720T development boards. By including all of these features, along with a reusable pool of software, Prospector allows rapid porting, evaluation, and development of derivative products.
