Coreboot Overview
Open Source Firmware Development Resources

Our coreboot® overview will give you a clear picture of this initiative, explaining how it can help you create solutions that may not be possible with your current design process. We’ll begin by introducing the basic concepts, starting with what coreboot is and where it came from, how it benefits a growing community of developers, and ways in which Sage engineers have shaped the technical landscape of this platform. Then, we’ll discuss unique features and capabilities of coreboot along with how it differs from a traditional boot firmware solution (BIOS). After going over the basic nuts and bolts of code development and structure, we’ll talk about coreboot payloads and licensing considerations.
