Hi all,

I often wondered this myself actually about serial / hardware revisions.  being so generic with reference boards from just about everyone, it would make sense not to lay down any specific revsion / serial number.

You would do this if you were making  a product en mass.  but most of these boards are reference / first adopters.

@Marcin,  I have 2 Panda es boards.  what exactly are you reading from? ( curious more than anything ).

Most of ARM platforms do not provide device serial numbers or device
revision in those places. Many of them can not even recognize revisions
by software.

For PandaBoard you can check board revision by software but you have to
be careful as there are some boards with wrong information (I have such
one). But board does not have serial number programmed at all.
