SW FST/nnn - Fast Boot Software

Concurrent Technologies’ boards are used in a wide range of embedded applications in the industrial, transportation, military and communications markets. By default, our Intel processor boards are supplied with a BIOS that initializes all the specific hardware before passing control to a boot loader for operating system and application installation. By definition, the BIOS based solution is totally generic and offers widespread compatibility but is not optimized for the fastest boot times. For those applications that need more speedy start up times, Fast Boot can be the solution.


  • Fast Boot is an alternative boot loader firmware image that can be programmed directly into a range of Concurrent Technologies computing boards supporting Intel® processors
  • Fast Boot can take the board from power-on through to starting the operating system boot in approximately 3 seconds
  • Boot direct to and load a Linux kernel from onboard ROM
