System Firmware: An Essential Guide to Open Source and Embedded Solutions
Find the right bootloader solution or combination of firmware required to boot a platform considering its security, product features, and optimized boot solutions. This book covers system boot firmware, focusing on real-world firmware migration from closed source to open source adaptation.

- Know the product development cycle using open source firmware development
Traditional system firmware is often complex and closed sourced whereas modern firmware is still a kind of hybrid between closed and open source. But what might a future firmware model look like? The most simplistic boot firmware solution uses open source firmware development. This bookhelps you decide how to choose the right boot firmware for your products and develop your own boot firmware using open source.
- Why open source firmware is used over closed source
- The pros and cons of closed and open source firmware
- A hybrid work model: for faster bring-up activity using closed source, binary integrated with open source firmware
The System Firmware: An Essential Guide to Open Source and Embedded Solutions book provides an architectural overview of popular boot firmware. This includes both closed sourced and/or open source in nature, such as Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), coreboot, and Slim Bootloader and their applicable market segments based on product development and deployment requirements.
