== coreboot cheap testing rig ==
The goal of this project is to create a cheap testing rig which works with the existing board test infrastructure. We have a hardware test system since 2006:
* [http://www.coresystems.de/PDFs/LinuxBIOS-testing/Slides-LinuxBIOS-QA.pdf Quality Assurance Talk (Slides)]
* [http://www.coresystems.de/PDFs/LinuxBIOS-testing/TestIntegrationManual.pdf Test Integration Manual]
* [http://www.coresystems.de/PDFs/LinuxBIOS-testing/DevelopersManual.pdf Test Developers Manual]
* [http://www.coresystems.de/PDFs/LinuxBIOS-testing/TestSpecification.pdf Test Specification]
The initial version of our testing rig used a remote power switch and was rather expensive. With cheaper technologies such as [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X10_%28industry_standard%29 X10], it's possible to drop the testing costs per board significantly.

* [[InSystemFlasher]] is a cheap DIY hardware prototype for building an automated testing rig for modern SPI-based boards. This could be used as a starting point.
