There are many technologies to consider when implementing Embedded Intel® architecture firmware. This paper gives a high-level overview of several key technologies and references to go learn more about them.
Embedded Intel® architecture designs include a firmware stack which initializes CPU cores, memory, IO, peripherals, graphics and provides runtime support for operating systems. This paper gives a high-level overview of a number of firmware technologies to be considered on Embedded Intel® architecture designs. Many links to external references are included. Because of its inherent complexity and number of technologies to be considered, the general recommendation is made that OEM Embedded Intel® architecture firmware design teams consider starting with an available solution from an IBV, ISV or the Intel® ecosystem and build on it to meet their particular product requirements.
