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.

Presenter:
Jiming Sun, Sr. Software Architect, Intel

Jiming Sun is a veteran in the PC industry with a specialty in firmware and BIOS. He was among the first batch of firmware engineers who worked on System Management Mode software, and one of the initiators for ACPI and UEFI. Jiming held many key technical and managerial positions at various renowned companies, such as: Bell Labs, HP, Insyde, AMD, Dell, and Apple. He is currently a Senior Software Architect in Intelligent Systems Group of Intel Corporation. He holds 18 granted US patents with two Master of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Management in Science & Technology. Outside of work, Jiming enjoys travel, hiking, photographing, and tennis.

Intel FSP solution being available on more Intel platforms, and not just the Intel® Atom™ Processors, the Intel FSP has standardized APIs that allow for interface of Intel silicon initialization code into any customized system firmware implementation. The implication is that open source firmware solutions, such as Coreboot and U-Boot can be utilized on Intel silicon for the first time. website
