The Internet of Things (IoT) presents new opportunities for business and industry, as well as some design challenges. IoT firmware must address the dynamic requirements of security, speed, size, licensing, and functional safety for a variety of use cases and operating system requirements. Product Architects and Designers need IoT boot solutions that address these challenges while also being mindful of existing standards and libraries.
This session discusses the important role firmware plays in IoT designs as well as how a new open source firmware solution that leverages libraries from TianoCore and EFI Development Kit II (EDKII) complements existing firmware solutions in the IoT market.
