+Board Support Packages (BSP)
+----------------------------
+.. index:: Board Support Package
+.. index:: BSP
+
+A Board Suport Package is a historical term for a package of code, and
+supporting documentation for a target. The sparation is still important today
+for users with custom hardware.
+
+RTEMS includes 173 board support packages in it's source tree and this is a
+small number of actual targets running because it does not take into account
+the custom targets.
+
+You can see the BSP list in RTEMS by asking RTEMS with:
+
+.. code-block:: shell
+
+ $ ./rtems-bsps
