General documentation about building embedded hardware based on Intel processor

Jump to solution

I'm trying to find some document that overview process of developing embedded systems platform. I know what SoC I want to use and what capbilities system should have.

1. Where to start and what steps to take ?

2. How to obtain CRB for my SoC ?

3. Where to find schematics PCB modification guidelines for my SoC ?

4. Where to find BWG ?

4. How partners ecosystem works, are there manufacturing partners ? Who can design/develope firmware ?

5. How to validate platform during manufacturing ?

Is there any document like that ? It is very hard to find anything in Design Center especially something that will give general introduction. Also search not always return what is asked for.

Hi,

Ircona is a design services company based in Dublin, Ireland which has over 20 years experience in the development of x86 based hardware and embedded SW.

We would be able to take on all areas of this design which you cannot support internally, including both the hardware design and the BIOS or coreboot development.

We are a distributor and customisation partner of Phoenix Technologies for BIOS and an Ecosystem partner for Intel's Firmware support package (FSP).

Please contact me on mailto:john.doody@ircona.com john.doody@ircona.com for more information on how we can assist you.

Looking forward to talking further,
