Summary Featuring hands-on examples and exercises using Open Source codebases, like Coreboot and EFI Development Kit (tianocore) and Chromebook, this book combines a timely and thorough overview of firmware solutions for the rapidly evolving embedded ecosystem with in-depth coverage of requirements and optimization. You'll learn to understand the key differences between PC and embedded ecosystems in terms of firmware needs; get a thorough underpinning of Intel's firmware solutions; learn how to build a firmware stack for Quark; discover how to integrate FSP with a bootloader by studying the hands-on example of Coreboot and UEFI; know how to make a smart "build-it or buy-it" decision when starting a new embedded project. -- Edited summary from book.
