BrianRichardson's picture

The Intel® Firmware Engine 4.0 release is now available. Intel Firmware Engine enables rapid firmware configuration and customization using a graphical interface, without the need for source modifications. Customers start from a validated Intel reference design, allowing developers to configure firmware features based on their product customizations. This development process accelerates adding & removing firmware features not found in reference platform, adding 3rd party components, and integration of custom boot payloads.

Intel Firmware Engine 4.0 (Linux)

Intel Firmware Engine 4.0 adds application support for Ubuntu* Linux*, in addition to existing support for Microsoft* Windows operating systems. This release also updates the firmware core, based on the UDK2017 release available from, and improves deployment of microcode patch updates.

Intel Firmware Engine generates images based on Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specifications. These images are capable of booting UEFI compatible operating systems such as Microsoft* Windows and Linux*. This provides more flexibility than a basic bootloader, providing the same cross-compatibility found in off-the-shelf Intel Architecture platforms.

The primary focus for Intel Firmware Engine is Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices and embedded platforms with minimal changes from Intel reference designs. Platform repositories are available for designs based on Intel® Atom processors, including the open hardware MinnowBoard.
