Here is a list of different processor families, with miscellaneous notes for development information:

See also Hardware Hacking for a list of systems that include these processors.


See ARM website and the Wikipedia ARM article for information about the ARM architecture and processor family.

From the Linux perspective, there are 2 very different kinds of ARM chips:

  • ARM devices that include a MMU, and can run standard Linux
  • ARM devices without a MMU, which cannot run standard Linux. However, they can run uClinux. The Linux/Microcontroller project is a port of Linux to systems without a Memory Management Unit (MMU), such as the ARM7TDMI and the Microblaze. ( ). Is it true that the the Linux security permissions system relies on the MMU?

(FIXME: indicate whether or not each chip has a MMU)

Some major ARM platforms/SOCs are:
