You can find work in progress here too:

For aarch64 there are virt and sbsa-ref machines. Virt is essentially to
boot a VM while sbsa-ref is a reference platform that mimics all required
hardware, firmware for the secure world (TF-A, OP-TEE) and firmware for
normal world (U-Boot, EDK2). This technology (sbsa-ref) is really to
simulate a system for pre-silicon development while virt shall be used in
cloud native environments.

We are working on something that we may end up calling bsa-ref (note the
absence of initial S standing for “server”). Sbsa-ref is about edk2 and
acpi, bsa-ref is about U-Boot and device tree. The directory points to this
work in progress. You can have a look at SystemReady in Arm to understand
and get details on bsa.

In a future release of Qemu, one will be able to simulate a full platform
with its main processor (as of today) but also SCP (system control
processor) and MCP (management control processor).
