1.2.3 Other Fast Models products

The following Fast Models products are available separately from the main package:

Fixed Virtual Platforms (FVPs)

FVPs are models of Arm® platforms, including processors, memory and peripherals. They are supplied as standalone executables for Linux and Windows. They are not customizable, although you can configure some aspects of their behavior through command-line parameters. FVPs can be based on Arm Versatile™ Express development boards, called VE FVPs, on the Armv8‑A Base Platform, called Base FVPs, or on Arm MPS2 and Arm MPS2+ platforms, for Cortex®‑M series processors. They are available with a wide range of Armv7 and Armv8 processors and support the CADI and MTI interfaces, so can be used for debugging and for trace output. For more information, see Arm Developer website.

Arm provides validated Linux and Android deliverables for the Armv8‑A AEM Base Platform FVP and for the Foundation Platform. These are available on the Arm Community website at Arm Development Platforms. To get started with Linux on Armv8‑A FVPs, see Armv8-A FVPs also on Arm Community.
