Labs are conducted on target boards, that can be:
    Quad Cortex/A9-based "Sabre" boards from NXP, with Lauterbach JTAG probes.
    Dual Cortex/A9-based "Panda ES" boards from Texas Instruments, with Lauterbach JTAG probes.
    Atmel ARM9-based boards, with Lauterbach JTAG probes.
Course environment
