Altera is shipping their second generation ARM Cortex-A9 based FPGA in the Altera Arria 10 FPGA, built on 20nm, running at 1.5 GHz, the ARM processor provides a 50% increase in performance over the previous generation (Altera Arria 5) with also a 30% power reduction. Altera Arria 10 SoCs support secure boot with authentication based on Elliptical Curve Digital Signature Authentication (EC DSA), with a layered public key infrastructure for root of trust support, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and new anti-tamper features. Altera Arria 10 HPS now has three Ethernet MAC cores, 256 KB Scratch-RAM, supports 8- and 16-bit NAND flash devices, eMMC SD/SDIO/MMC cards, and 72-bit DDR3/4 memory. Altera Arria 10 features the industry’s only midrange 28.3 Gbps support, highest performance 2,666 Mbps DDR4 SDRAM memory interface, IEEE 754-compliant hard floating-point with 1,500 GFLOPS of DSP performance and 96 transceiver lanes deliver 3.6 Tbps of serial bandwidth.

In 1986, Acorn shipped the ARM Development System, the world's first ARM development board to ever be sold with an ARM Processor in it, a Tube-linked second processor for the BBC Master which allowed developers to write programs for ARM! Sophie Wilson, original ARM designer at Acorn Computers, talks about the History of ARM, with the devices that used ARM1, ARM2, ARM3, ARM610 in the Apple Newton and talking about how ARM was spun out of Acorn, how the ARM business model made ARM such a huge worldwide success.
Allwinner H64 OTT box development board is a 64bit Quad core ARM Cortex-A53 with H.265 4K decoding, 4K HDMI output, smart color display with Android 5 Lollipop support.
This is the Radxa Rock2 on Rockchip RK3288 quad-core ARM Cortex-A17, still being optimized for release at http://radxa.com/Rock2 it's configured as a SoM (System on Module) board with a choice of two base boards with more or less connectors and with that SoM module swappable. Tyler Baker of the Linaro LAVA team talks about the connectors and how Linaro is integrating this into http://kernelci.org which you can hear about at http://armdevices.net/2015/02/28/kernelci-org-upstream-kernel-validation-project/
Qualcomm at Linaro Connect, Open Source Freedreno GPU Drivers for Qualcomm Adreno GPUs running on Inforce Computing’s Single-board-computers
Hacking on Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Snapdragon 805 based Inforce Computing single-board-computers, Inforce 6410 and Inforce 6540, in this video, the Qualcomm Linaro Landing Team and Qualcomm Linaro engineers talk about the status of Ubuntu Linux release on Snapdragon 600 processor based development boards. Rob Clark, Freedreno project owner, talks about the status of open source graphics drivers for Qualcomm Adreno processor. The Linaro Linux release uses Freedreno graphics driver for HW acceleration. Other landing team engineers talk about various other plugins and drivers such Gstreamer plugin developed for the Linux release to enable to support for HW accelerated HTML5 video. There has been a lot of progress made on up streaming drivers for Snapdragon processors.
