Initial debug of a new Intel-based design can be much easier using Intel® Customer Scripts (ICS), which are commonly known as CScripts. There are so many facets of checking out an Intel processor-based design today that some basic standard checkout is really needed. Intel Customer Scripts fill this need. One outcome of running them could inform the engineer that the board is relatively functional. However, a more common early result is to show that a portion of the board’s hardware or a segment of its firmware is not working.
