Bios is updating ec firmware

26-Feb-2018 05:56

The latest EC silicon feature higher processing power and complex features, requiring a more robust firmware solution.

With over 25 years of experience in BIOS and keyboard controller programming, AMI is the best candidate to provide an advanced EC firmware solution.

In this case, changing the behaviour of the fan system can be done by the system administrator through ACPI configuration without changing any firmware.

The Embedded Controller is the one responsible with the power management and some other stuff for our notebook.

Flexible Development Options: * Full source code available for development * Firmware development in C or assembly language (depends on part selection) * Supports Share BIOS and Internal Flash implementations (depends on part selection) * AMI offers EC firmware ported to many popular chipset reference board (CRB) designs.

This package provides the application for EC Firmware Update Programing Tool and is supported on the Inspiron 3059/3459 Series running the following Windows operating systems: Windows 7/8.1 and Windows 10.

Advanced Functionality: * Keyboard Controller Functionality: AT and PS/2 8042 Compatibility with support for matrix keyboard scan controllers, device hot-swap, hot-plug and OEM hot-key implementations.

The embedded controller (EC) is an essential component in modern mobile, ultra-mobile and embedded computer systems.

An efficient EC sub-system enables energy-conscious designs to obtain dramatic power savings.

As a core system component, the embedded controller is always on when power is supplied to the mainboard.

To communicate with the main computer system, several forms of communication can be used, including ACPI, SMBus, or shared memory.
