Rev EA1/EA2

These were limited number of 'Early Adopter' boards that built prior to production versions. more details

Rev ES

There is now a PandaBoard-ES which includes an OMAP 4460 at up to 1.2GHz. Several important differences make it important (at the present time) that the MLO/u-boot/kernel be specifically crafted for the 4460. The thermal management is not in the mainline 4430 code as yet and could cause unwanted thermal problems. So BEWARE of running any code built for the non -ES PandaBoard on the -ES model.
