AMD AMD Announces Coreboot support for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform

Moving toward AMD APU appliances through embedded solutions using an open-source platform:

One market, where AMD Embedded has struggled despite having a very compelling x86 offering is in the deeply embedded space where other architectures such as PowerPC, MIPs and ARM also play today. Frankly, in order to compete in those markets more than just good hardware is needed. It’s in these markets where real hard core engineering is still the norm instead of the exception and much of the system may be proprietary. These engineers will analyze their solution to the nth-degree to maximize their performance in a real time environment. For this environment, a complete and unique-to-embedded ecosystem is required that includes development systems, software tools, hardware tools and software. This week, AMD Embedded Solutions will add a key component to our solution for these markets with the announcement of coreboot support for the AMD Embedded G-Series platform.

Coreboot (formerly known as LinuxBIOS) is an open source bootloader that can be used with Linux (duh) but also other operating systems, including those from Microsoft and many proprietary or custom OSs. Coreboot offers many advantages for embedded including small size, fast boot and full control by the developer, as all of the code is available publicly. Coreboot also takes advantage of a community of embedded-specific developers who support each other and add features to the base code that can be leveraged by everyone. Consequently, it has become a basic requirement for deeply embedded applications.
