    Open hardware platforms are great reference designs, but they're often not considered "product ready" due to debug features built into the firmware... but a few firmware changes can turn an open hardware board into a production-quality platform.

    This session demonstrates how to optimize firmware for product delivery, using the MinnowBoard Max as a practical example, by disabling debug interfaces and optimizing the platform for an embedded software payload. Examples are also given for enabling signed firmware updates and secure firmware recovery, based on industry standard UEFI firmware.
