8.2. Board Variant Selection Considerations

Target a board variant in your Custom Platform that provides only the external connectivity resources you require.

For example, if your kernel requires one external memory bank, target a board variant that only supports a single external memory bank. Targeting a board with multiple external memory banks increases the area usage of your kernel unnecessarily.

If your Custom Platform does not provide a board variant that meets your needs, consider creating a board variant. Consult the Custom Platform Toolkit User Guide for more information.
