SW FST/nnn – Fast Boot Software
- Dramatically reduces boot times
- Provides a boot loader image to replace BIOS
- Includes example Linux kernel booting from onboard storage
Concurrent Technologies’ boards are used in a wide range of embedded applications in the industrial, transportation, military and communications markets. By default, our Intel processor boards are supplied with a BIOS that initializes all the specific hardware before passing control to a boot loader for operating system and application installation. By definition, the BIOS based solution is totally generic and offers widespread compatibility but is not optimized for the fastest boot times. For those applications that need more speedy start up times, Fast Boot can be the solution.
