Arch Linux ARM is a branch of Arch Linux for ARM processors.[1][2][3]

Unlike Arch Linux which is aimed at x86 CPU's (IA-32 and x86-64), Arch Linux ARM is aimed at low and high end ARM CPUs. On the low end there is support for ARMv5 platforms like plug computers and OXNAS-based ARMv6 Pogoplugs.

On the higher end, there is support for ARMv7 first generation Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard or Cubieboard, second generation Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and TrimSlice.[4] and 3th generation ARMv7, Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A15 (Cubieboard2, Odroid XU, Samsung Chromebook (series 3) or Samsung Chromebook 2). However, Arch Linux ARM can run on any device that supports ARMv5te, ARMv6h or ARMv7 instruction sets.[5]
