Overview:
In addition to BIOS, UEFI, and Intel® Boot Loader
Development Kit (Intel® BLDK) that have been traditionally enabled by Intel,
Intel has created the Intel® Firmware Support Package (Intel® FSP) to further
satisfy the versatile needs of the Intel® Intelligent Systems ecosystem, which
creates products covering a wide range of system designs beyond PC architecture
with the Intel® Atom™ and Intel® Core™ processors. With Intel FSP, customers can
create and develop innovative products using any suitable firmware boot loader
solutions in the market, such as: BIOS, RTOS (VxWorks, QNX Neutrino, etc.), Open
Source solutions (Coreboot, U-Boot, Linux, etc.), and other proprietary and
non-proprietary boot solutions. This technical presentation will talk about:

  • Intel FSP design principle and contents
  • Intel FSP integration and programming interface
  • Intel FSP build and tool requirements
  • Intel FSP support model and release plan

What the
Attendees will Learn:

  • What Intel Firmware Support Package (Intel FSP) is and what makes it great
    for the intelligent system market
  • Philosophy and design principles of Intel FSP
  • Key features Intel FSP supports
  • Technical details with sample implementation code walk-through

Who Should Attend:
BIOS developers, UEFI developers, RTOS
developers, Firmware developers, embedded system designers, architects who are
looking for opportunities to convert from competing architectures to Intel
Architecture.
