Sage Development Tools & SageBIOS Support Embedded Community’s Use Of AMD Embedded G-Series SOC
The Sage toolkit developed by Sage Electronic Engineering can be used confidently by embedded developers incorporating AMD’s newest platform in their design projects.
The SmartProbe is a sophisticated JTAG development and debug probe, and the Sage EDK is an advanced graphical interface. Paired together, these tools give developers a complete system view for unmatched accessibility to the system under development. These tools let developers query and manipulate what’s inside the processor, chipset and peripherals, fostering greater productivity. The automated, configurable Sage toolkit enables convenient plug-and-play development and debug sessions.
Sage development tools support the following new processors, listed by model number:
AMD Embedded GX-420CA SOC
AMD Embedded GX-415GA SOC
AMD Embedded GX-217GA SOC
AMD Embedded GX-210HA SOC
AMD Embedded GX-416RA SOC
Current users of the Sage toolkit can access changes through their next update; note that the user guide includes information on updating the probe and EDK.
In addition, Sage is known for developing SageBIOS™, a coreboot® distribution that eliminates many issues associated with traditional BIOS. Designed for customization, SageBIOS™ can boot from anything, including FLASH, IDE, Ethernet and custom sources, and boots to everything, including Linux® and RTOS. Sage has made updates for SageBIOS™ to be compatible with the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC. Thus developers can enjoy open source benefits while designing across different x86 platforms.
