U-Boot is a de-facto standard bootloader for Linux-driven embedded systems. It provides flexible means for loading kernel and if required image of filesystem from different media be it embedded non-volatile memory, attached storage or even network share. Linux kernel was ported to DesignWare ARC a while ago and starting from version 3.9 the port was accepted upstream. Now to enable real-life device booting on custom hardware decision was made to port U-Boot for ARC. This presentation unveils reasons to start the project, highlights milestones passed during porting process, touches some pitfalls and encourages more engineers and companies to use and contribute to U-Boot project.
