AMI to Present on the Use of Capsules for Firmware Configuration Update at Spring 2019 UEFI Plugfest

Mar 15, 2019 | Press Release

NORCROSS, GEORGIA – AMI, a global leader in BIOS, BMC and remote management tools, network data storage products and more, will make a presentation on the use of capsules for firmware configuration update at the Spring 2019 UEFI Plugfest.

UEFI Forum Seminar and Plugfest events bring together experts from across the industry and introduces the latest UEFI firmware advancements several times a year. The event is an opportunity to meet with industry colleagues, test the latest platforms, devices and firmware, and take a deep dive into the newest UEFI enhancements.

The Spring 2019 event takes place from April 8 to April 12, 2019 in Bellevue, Washington, where AMI will make a presentation on the use of capsules for Firmware Configuration Update. While capsules have been used by UEFI for updating device firmware for several years, UEFI version 2.8 has introduced a new feature where the firmware exposes Human Interface Infrastructure (HII) configuration information to the operating system. The operating system, or additional tools, can then in turn provide a capsule back to the firmware to update HII configuration settings. AMI’s presentation will be an overview of this new feature in UEFI v2.8 and explore real world use cases of the technology.

Additional details and online registration for the upcoming Spring 2019 UEFI Plugfest is now open for UEFI Forum members at: https://uefi.org/node/3925. Please note that this is a members-only event.
