New PDF release: Beyond BIOS: Developing with the Unified Extensible Firmware

By Vincent Zimmer,Michael Rothman,Suresh Marisetty

This ebook offers an outline of contemporary boot firmware, together with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and its linked EFI Developer package II (EDKII) firmware. The authors have every one made major contributions to advancements in those components. The reader will learn how to use the newest advancements in UEFI on glossy undefined, together with open resource firmware and open designs. The ebook starts off with an exploration of interfaces uncovered to higher-level software program and working structures, and commences to the left of the boot timeline, describing the movement of usual platforms, starting with the computer restart occasion.

Software engineers operating with UEFI will gain significantly from this publication, whereas particular sections of the publication handle themes proper for a basic viewers: process architects, pre-operating-system program builders, working procedure owners (loader, kernel), self reliant proprietors (such as for plug-in adapters), and builders of end-user functions. As a secondary viewers, undertaking technical leaders or managers will be attracted to this e-book to get a believe for what their engineers are doing.

The reader will locate:

  • An evaluate of UEFI and underlying Platform Initialization (PI) requisites
  • How to create UEFI functions and drivers
  • Workflow to layout the firmware resolution for a contemporary platform
  • Advanced usages of UEFI firmware for protection and manageability
