NORCROSS, GEORGIA: - American Megatrends Inc.

When users want to make firmware updates, the updates can be programmed onto the NVMe devices on the next reboot.

Utilizing this firmware update method will allow NVMe manufacturers and OEMs to easily apply firmware updates to their respective devices.
