What it is

ARM is a family of instruction set architectures for computer processors based on a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architecture developed by British company ARM Holdings.

Current supported architecture

  • armv7l - softfloat (can be used on OLD devices)
  • armv7hl - hardfloat (modern phones/boards)
  • aarch64 - our future (will be available for purchase in Q2 2014)
