The ST Microelectronics SPEAr range of ARM9/CortexA9 System-on-Chip CPUs are
- supported by the 'spear' platform of ARM Linux. Currently SPEAr300,
- SPEAr310, SPEAr320 and SPEAr600 SOCs are supported. Support for the SPEAr13XX
- series is in progress.
+ supported by the 'spear' platform of ARM Linux. Currently SPEAr1310,
+ SPEAr1340, SPEAr300, SPEAr310, SPEAr320 and SPEAr600 SOCs are supported.
Hierarchy in SPEAr is as follows:
SPEAr (Platform)
- SPEAr3XX (3XX SOC series, based on ARM9)
- SPEAr300 (SOC)
- - SPEAr300_EVB (Evaluation Board)
+ - SPEAr300 Evaluation Board
- SPEAr310 (SOC)
- - SPEAr310_EVB (Evaluation Board)
+ - SPEAr310 Evaluation Board
- SPEAr320 (SOC)

Configuration
-------------
A generic configuration is provided for each machine, and can be used as the
default by
- make spear600_defconfig
- make spear300_defconfig
- make spear310_defconfig
- make spear320_defconfig
+ make spear13xx_defconfig
+ make spear3xx_defconfig
+ make spear6xx_defconfig
Layout
------
- The common files for multiple machine families (SPEAr3XX, SPEAr6XX and
- SPEAr13XX) are located in the platform code contained in arch/arm/plat-spear
+ The common files for multiple machine families (SPEAr3xx, SPEAr6xx and
+ SPEAr13xx) are located in the platform code contained in arch/arm/plat-spear
with headers in plat/.
Each machine series have a directory with name arch/arm/mach-spear followed by
series name. Like mach-spear3xx, mach-spear6xx and mach-spear13xx.
- Common file for machines of spear3xx family is mach-spear3xx/spear3xx.c and for
- spear6xx is mach-spear6xx/spear6xx.c. mach-spear* also contain soc/machine
- specific files, like spear300.c, spear310.c, spear320.c and spear600.c.
- mach-spear* also contains board specific files for each machine type.
+ Common file for machines of spear3xx family is mach-spear3xx/spear3xx.c, for
+ spear6xx is mach-spear6xx/spear6xx.c and for spear13xx family is
+ mach-spear13xx/spear13xx.c. mach-spear* also contain soc/machine specific
+ files, like spear1310.c, spear1340.c spear300.c, spear310.c, spear320.c and
+ spear600.c. mach-spear* doesn't contains board specific files as they fully
+ support Flattened Device Tree.
