Boot Concepts

There are several possibilities to boot a system after the operating voltage has been applied. The importance of the boot loader for system behavior, and above all for the first impression that users have of the system, if often grossly underestimated.


The topic of boot time is becoming increasingly important in projects. Very often this topic comes up when switching from a microcontroller to a modern SOC. Because then you have to argue that although the new controller is significantly more powerful, the boot time has deteriorated substantially (due to the necessity of an operating system).

Furthermore, saving energy is becoming increasingly important. Especially in vehicles, many components are simply switched off when idle. However, all these components must be ready for operation again in significantly less than 2 seconds. With Linux, these requirements can be combined.

We show you how to optimise the boot time of your system. We offer a Service Package for this purpose. Furthermore, we provide the necessary knowledge in courses so that you yourself can also improve the boot-up time of your devices.
