Reference Open Source Software stacks

For Arm development boards and Fixed Virtual Platforms.

Arm produce Open Source Software (OSS) stacks for a variety of development platforms. The software provides a reference to help enable product development based on Arm IP for a range of markets and applications. We use the stacks to demonstrate:

  • Integration of multiple open source software components (firmware, OS, applications, services)
  • Upstream support for configuring the latest Arm IP
  • Software features (secure boot, secure services, power management, RAS error handling, etc.)
  • Alignment with Arm Specifications and Open Source community initiatives
