The BIOS Programmer’s book pack combines 2 books devoted to helping platform test and validation engineers to accelerate the evolution of innovative, differentiated, computer platform designs.
Beyond BIOS: Implementing the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface with Intel's Framework describes a set of robust architectural interfaces, implemented in C, which is the recommended implementation of the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) specification for computer platforms based on the Intel® Architecture. The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Shell is designed for programmers who are writing automation process software for computer-based equipment.
In Harnessing the UEFI Shell, the authors describe the features and capabilities of the shell for the UEFI explaining that the UEFI is not an operating system per se, but is instead intended to be a set of defined interfaces between the system firmware (BIOS), Option ROMs, and operating systems. Included are detailed descriptions of how to use the UEFI Shell with many real life examples such as specialized memory tests for chip and board validation and manufacturing validation tests.Written specifically for practicing platform validation and software QA engineers, these books enable the reader to quickly become proficient in undertanding and exploiting the UEFI Shell.
The BIOS Programmer’s Book Pack Includes:
- Beyond BIOS
