9.4.3. BPABI versus base platform

The BPABI is a standard defined by the BPABI for the ARM Architecture. Other compilers such as GCC can target the BPABI. Therefore a platform owner providing a post-linker does not get locked into using the ARM Compiler.

The Base Platform is an extension to the BPABI which is most useful in producing a platform with a single address space application, but with loadable module support. When an MMU exists there is little need for the custom memory map that it provides.
