Hi Clay,

I can confirm Yuan's summary is accurate. Years ago we were able to have the 
IDV run on an ARM device similar to Raspberry PI (an ODroid). The problem is 
the Java 3D API that the IDV depends on will no longer correctly interface with 
the ARM device. I unfortunately, don't see this working anytime soon or ever.

Best,
