Enhancing BIOS Boot Time for Embedded SystemsTo meet the needs of today’s embedded customers, faster BIOS boot times are required. This white paper documents the investigation and proof of concept for enabling a sub 2-second EFI BIOS boot time on embedded platforms featuring the Intel® Atom™ processor.The paper’s conclusion notes that achieving a sub-2 second boot time with EFI BIOS is not difficult. While many of the methods used are specific to embedded markets—systems with a singular function—several other methods are optimizations useful for all BIOS markets.The research indicates it is likely that sub-1-second boot time is attainable without changing the overall architecture or features of the BIOS.Read the full Enhancing BIOS Boot Time for Embedded Systems White Paper.
