Developing with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface
Book Type: Intel Press Books
Table of Contents:

In Beyond BIOS: Developing with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface the authors have updated the successful first edition to include the latest UEFI specifications and have expanded the scope of the book to include support of embedded and SOC platform designs.

"In just a few days, a programmer familiar with C should have a good understanding of how to get started writing UEFI drivers and applications. For those who haven't developed PC BIOS firmware, Beyond BIOS 2nd Edition presents an opportunity to ramp up on the industry standard firmware platform for PCs and start writing UEFI apps as they do apps for today's mobile operating systems."

- Steve Jones, Chief Technology Officer, Phoenix Technologies Ltd.

"...highly recommend this book as a "deep dive" into the UEFI specifications and the flexibility these standards give to those who choose them. This publication is full of practical information and real-world examples for system designers and can empower them to get and keep a competitive edge in their designs. I would like to commend Intel for compiling such a valuable resource."

- S. Shankar, President and CEO, American Megatrends Inc. (AMI)

"Our customers were able to gain efficiency and time-to-market advantage from legacy BIOS to Framework and EFI... Beyond BIOS 2nd Edition provides an extremely thorough yet lucid explanation of UEFI and PI that should be helpful to anyone that wants to understand or use this modern firmware environment."

- Jonathan Joseph, Executive Vice President, lnsyde Software
