Intel® Software for Embedded Developers

Software, Drivers, Firmware, Tools, and Ecosystem Products

Firmware diagram


Intel® Firmware Support Package (Intel® FSP) and Intel® Boot Loader Development Kit (Intel® BLDK) provides key programming information for initializing Intel® silicon and can be easily integrated into a boot loader of the developer’s choice. It is easy to adopt, scalable to design, reduces time-to-market, and is economical to build.

Signal processing and packet processing functions have often required special-purpose hardware such as digital signal processors (DSPs), discrete network processing units (NPUs), coprocessors, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). However, recent enhancements to Intel® architecture processors together with advanced software are providing developers with viable alternatives.
