Help develop BIOS for Intel Atom® Processor C3538 motherboard!

Hi Everybody!

Our company develops a motherboard on the processor Intel atom c3538.

Mostly our motherboard used intel reference board design, but there are some changes that do not allow using the BIOS from the reference board.

We need build custom bios (bootloader, silicon initialization, etc.) for our motherboard.

1. We need a download link to the COREBOOT source code file for Intel Atom® Processor C3538 (denverton ns) or for Intel harcuvar platform. The file name (most likely) looks like fsp_bootloader-coreboot-xxxxxxxx.tar.gz. Or we must use coreboot from github?

2. We need a link to download manual containing instruction about compiling the COREBOOT for Intel Atom® Processor C3538. The manual should contain information about configuring of COREBOOT package before compiling (about the necessary settings of .config file for our processor (harcuvar platform)).

3. We need a link to download manual containing instruction about integration procedure of Intel Firmware Support Package (FSP) binary into coreboot. After working with the "BCT-master" program, we got files with the extension *.rom. Where can we find instructions on how to integrate these files into the coreboot?

4. We need a link to download latest CPU Microcode for Intel atom c3538 and manual about procedure of integration it into coreboot.

5. We need a link to download Intel Flash Image Tool (FITC) tool for Intel Atom® Processor C3538.

I will be very grateful for any information about the development (modification) of the BIOS for our motherboard. What else is needed to development (modificate) single SPI flash image file for Intel Atom® Processor C3538 motherboard? (Trusted Execution Engine (TXE)?, Flash Descriptor.bin?, OEM Section.bin?, GbE Region.bin?, ME Region.bin?)

I haven't seen any answer to the questions, so I don't know what to try except for putting questions here.

There are only questions, but no answers.

I don't know what do you mean "each of our answers" here.

I asked at least 4 FAEs, both from distributors and from intel. No one can provide it. Some were not responsive, some said you should ask others, some just wanted to sell you something.
