This tag lists the compatible revisions of the board that the current board file applies to. Changes to the physical board may also trigger changes in board file, and therefore a new board <file_version>. However, revisions to the board file may not require revisions to the physical board; and revisions to the physical board can include changes that do not necessitate an updated board file. Therefore it is possible for a board file to support multiple revisions of a physical board.

Tip: Revisions to the board are possible without triggering revisions to the board file. Therefore a specific board file can be used to define multiple board revisions.

The <compatible_board_revisions> tag includes one or more <revision> tags that list the supported board revisions:

<revision id="0”>1.1</revision>

The <revision> tag includes an index "id" for each revision listed in the <compatible_board_revisions > tag. In the following example, the id is "0", and "1.1” is a supported revision of the board.

  <revision id="0">1.1</revision>
