QEMU Emulation Targets

To simplify development, the build system supports building images to work with the QEMU emulator in system emulation mode. Several architectures are currently supported in 32 and 64 bit variants:

  • ARM (qemuarm + qemuarm64)
  • x86 (qemux86 + qemux86-64)
  • PowerPC (qemuppc only)
  • MIPS (qemumips + qemumips64)

Use of the QEMU images is covered in the Yocto Project Reference Manual. The appropriate MACHINE variable value corresponding to the target is given in brackets.
