[Xen-devel] Supported hardware

Dear developers,

​I'm doing my master thesis this year and I will be using the Xen hypervisor for it. The domain for my thesis is more about the automotive sector, but unfortunately the hardware is too expensive to actually use the automotive drivers for Xen.

The goal is to set up a failover cluster by using two different processors, but the first goal is to actually run Xen on them. Due to the limited budget, we were looking at this development board specifically:


This is a board based on a single Cortex A53 implemented by NXP, more details can be found here:


Now I have heard the biggest problem is generally the GIC interrupt controller, so I was wondering if it is possible to run Xen on these boards? Once I have confirmation I can make the purchase to continue my thesis. It would be a shame to buy unsupported hardware to start with.

Many thanks in advance!
