Intel® Boot Loader Development KitProduct Brief: Intel® Boot Loader Development KitEmbedded ComputingOverview The Intel® Boot Loader Development Kit (Intel® BLDK) is a software toolkit that allows creation of customized and optimized initialization firmware solutions for embedded Intel® processor-based platforms. The Intel BLDK enables rapid development of firmware for fixed-function embedded designs—those requiring basic initialization and functionality rather than the full capabilities delivered with a traditional BIOS. The Intel BLDK enables a platform initialization and boot capability comparable in performance, cost, and control to other solutions currently available for embedded designs. Because of its ease of use, rich feature set and open platform, the Intel BLDK provides an excellent incentive for developers who want to migrate their embedded solutions to Intel® architecture. Development Kit Components • Rich Code Base: Based on the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), the Intel BLDK provides a plethora of features and functionality required in embedded systems. • Reference Implementations: Example reference board images from Intel provide a baseline from which developers can customize their system firmware images. • GUI Tools: An integrated development environment facilitates easy navigation, modification, and debug of the underlying code base. Module selection and build tools allow custom image creation without direct code changes. • Documentation: Comprehensive instructional documents enable self-sufficiency and effective support, no matter what the size of the project.
