Firmware solutions for x86 reference boards

Each SageBIOS™ BSP is a specially configured, compiled, and tested boot solution streamlined for a particular customer reference board (CRB). The board support package (BSP) includes everything required to develop, compile, and prepare the binary boot image for your design. Included in each BSP are several items:

  • Source code trimmed of unneeded components
  • Payload packages (e.g. SeaBIOS, iPXE)
  • Customized configurations
  • Binary packages provided by the silicon vendor
  • Updates for 1 year
Sage EDK
Embedded firmware development for x86 systems

Built on the Kepler edition of the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and packaged with a complete toolchain required for cross-compiling and downloading firmware, the Sage EDK is a highly productive embedded firmware development platform.

  • Static code analysis
  • Pre-configured cross-compile toolchain
  • Integrated Kconfig user interface
  • Debug features for monitoring multi-core processes
Sage SmartProbe®
Gain visibility and control in your target embedded system

The Sage SmartProbe® for AMD processors rapidly brings to light the internal status of your target embedded system, significantly improving the debug process and saving precious time.

  • Set breakpoints and step the clock for individual cores or all cores
  • Monitor the execution process on multiple cores simultaneously
  • Debug systems with one or more SmartProbes® located remotely or locally
  • Program the flash memory through JTAG
Sage Training
