This page is specific to running the arm version of Qemu. Make sure to also read the common Qemu notes!

This device is used to emulate an ARM Versatile Express for Cortex-A9.

Vexpress (Versatile Express) is the reference architecture from the ARM Foundation. It simulates the armv7 architecture and a lot of other hardware (like graphics hardware).

QEMU supports many other ARM architectures (see qemu-system-arm -machine help).
