This award was given to AMI in recognition of outstanding support in its UEFI BIOS Development work for the company’s Toughbook® line of notebook computers.

Panasonic Toughbook® rugged laptops and Toughpad® durable tablets are engineered with enterprise-grade security and can withstand drops, spills, dust and grime to perform in the harshest environments. Rugged reliability, low cost of ownership and accolades from reviewers are just a few of the reasons why Panasonic keeps winning over the world’s toughest users.
