Intel is both a leader in power-efficient computing and committed to open source software solutions. As such, Intel’s Open Source Technology Center is pleased to launch the open source project ( - a community of end users, open source developers, and operating system vendors (OSVs) focused on delivering the components and tools needed to reduce the power consumed by systems running Linux. To learn how become involved in this unique community and explore opportunities to build energy efficient OSS solutions, visit:

OSS Projects
Intel is involved in many different open source projects and many of our software engineers contribute at various levels�from small code contributions to functioning as project or kernel maintainers.
Contributing to Open Source Projects
The focal point of the open source development model is commitment and contribution. Intel is committed to supporting the OSS developer and actively contributes to many open source projects.

  • The Intel Project is a collaboration site for enhancing Solaris performance on Intel platforms, enabling and utilizing new features on Intel processors, accelerating driver availability, and other development efforts for making Solaris the Mission Critical Unix operating system of choice on Intel platforms.
  • Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) is a standard that defines power and configuration management interfaces between an operating system and the BIOS. It is meant to supersede the older APM standard (for power management) and provide a generic interface for recognition and configuration of hardware devices.
  • OpenHPI provides an open source implementation of the Service Availability Forum (SAF) Hardware Platform Interface (HPI). OpenHPI's architecture contains a modular mechanism intended to make adding new hardware support easier. Several plugins exist in the OpenHPI source tree giving access to various types of hardware. This includes, but is not limited to, IPMI based servers, Blade Center, and machines which export data via sysfs.
  • Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Driver for Linux was created by Intel to enable support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection mini PCI adapter.
  • Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Driver for Linux was created by Intel to enable support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection and Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection mini PCI adapters.
  • Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Driver for Linux was created by Intel to enable support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter.
  • Linux graphics drivers contain the open source software drivers for the Intel® 965 Express Chipset family graphics controller.
  • Linux-ready Firmware Development Kit is a tool to test how well Linux works together with the firmware (BIOS or EFI) of your machine.
  • Linux Ultra-Wideband hosts the effort to develop a Linux Ultra-Wide-Band stack, as well as drivers for Wireless USB Host Controller drivers, UWB Radio Controllers and associated hardware. UWB is a high-bandwidth, low-power, point-to-point radio technology using a wide spectrum (3.1-10.6GHz).
  • Web Services Management (WSMAN) is a project to provide an open source implementation of the Web Services Management specification and to expose system management information on the Linux operating system using the WS-Management protocol.
  • Linux Kernel Performance is a group of dedicated Linux kernel engineers taking on the challenge of testing the Linux kernel. To track performance, a large set of benchmarks covering core components of the Linux kernel (virtual memory management, I/O subsystem, process scheduler, file system, network, device driver, etc) are run weekly on a variety of platforms.
  • Service Availability Forum Test is an open-source project serving as the central location for developing and providing conformance test suites for SA Forum published specifications. The test suites cover both the A and B version of the HPI and AIS specifications.
  • Xen*, Open Source Virtualization Solution. Intel is among the largest and early contributors to Xen, which is an Open Source Virtualization Solution. Primary contributions are 64-and-32-bit unmodified guest interfaces, Xen port to Intel® 64 platforms, SMP interface, testing, and optimization.

Intel Platform Technologies - Changing the Face of Business
You need more than great hardware to deliver a compelling user experience. You need a platform solution: a stack of hardware, services, and enabling tools that provide the edge for your products and services in the marketplace. Intel continues to develop new tools and services to help you develop innovative solutions that create the new normal.
Intel's Platform Approach
A platform is an integrated set of ingredients that enables targeted usage models, and grows existing markets and creates new markets. A good platform will deliver greater end-user benefits than the sum of its parts. Learn more...

Intel's Platform Technologies "Define the New Normal"
Intel continues to drive the pace of innovation. We give you the platform capabilities that enable new usage models, and new classes of devices and services that define the new normal. The following technologies can be found in Intel’s latest platforms, or will be coming soon.
