Summary: OpenBios implementation of IEEE 1275-1994

The OpenBIOS project provides you with most free and open source Open Firmware
implementations available. Here you find several implementations of
IEEE 1275-1994 (Referred to as Open Firmware) compliant firmware. Among its
features, Open Firmware provides an instruction set independent device
interface. This can be used to boot the operating system from expansion cards
without native initialization code.

It is Open Firmware's goal to work on all common platforms, like x86, AMD64,
PowerPC, ARM and Mips. With its flexible and modular design, Open Firmware
targets servers, workstations and embedded systems, where a sane and unified
firmware is a crucial design goal and reduces porting efforts noticably.

Open Firmware is found on many servers and workstations and there are sever
commercial implementations from SUN, Firmworks, CodeGen, Apple, IBM and others.

In most cases, the Open Firmware implementations provided on this site rely on
an additional low-level firmware for hardware initialization, such as coreboot
or U-Boot.
