After Google landed "Bay Trail" support in Coreboot
and then followed up with more Bay Trail changes
for a forthcoming Chromebook with one of these low-power processors with in-house graphics, the support for this "Rambi" device is being rounded out.
Rambi is the codename for the first Chromebook based on Intel's Bay Trail architecture. The latest improvements that just landed include:
- The Rambi Device Tree
for all onboard devices.
- The Bay Trail SATA driver
for Coreboot and enabling the port
- Enabling Rambi's keyboard
- Other changes
For those looking for a Linux-friendly Bay Trail device right now, I would highly recommend the Bay Trail NUC Kit
with it being affordable, open-source friendly, and offering decent performance
