Designing Quick Starting Embedded Systems: Defining Boot Time
This training provides an introduction to boot time as it relates to the design of quick-starting embedded systems for AM3x, AM4x, and AM57x Sitara processors. It starts by discussing the importance of boot time and defining the term as it applies to the purpose of this training. Boot time expectations based on system complexity are discussed, as well as how the time required to achieve complete system availability can be highly variable. And the role of the OS as a contributor to boot time duration is examined, as well as decisions that can be made during system design to improve the product boot time.
