    Sage offers demo open source boot ROM for Bayley Bay crb

    SageJeff Green Belt

      Sage has added a free demonstration ROM for an open source-based boot of the Bailey Bay reference board powered by the Intel® Atom E3800 SoC (system on chip), formerly known as the Bay Trail product family. The demonstration – available at http://www.se-eng.com/sagebios-demonstration-rom-osp-download/?osp=Bayley%20Bay – features the SageBIOS Open Source Package replacing standard UEFI boot loading. A SageBIOS OSP essentially demonstrates the robust nature of SageBIOS Board Support Packages – available for full- and semi-custom boots on Bay Trail SoCs. This binary demonstration image specifically targets the Bayley Bay platform and comes in an installer package that includes a menu-driven environment to support system firmware update and restore, and a folder containing all open source software used to construct the binary demonstration image. The Atom E3800 product family, based on the Silvermont architecture, was Intel's first system-on-chip (SoC) designed for intelligent systems, delivering outstanding compute, graphical, and media performance while operating in an extended range of thermal conditions. Sage has created a 509-millisecond boot in advance of an operating system with SageBIOS for the Bayley Bay platform, which is disabled on the demo OSP.
