Custom UEFI and BIOS utilities for Aptio and AMIBIOS simplify the development and debug experience. AMI's Aptio firmware offers an easy transition to the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification, giving developers all the advantages of UEFI - modularity, portability, C-based coding - while retaining easy-to-use tools that facilitate manufacturing and enhance productivity. AMI's rich set of utilities for BIOS ROM image customization without rebuilding the firmware provide a clear advantage in reducing both time and cost.
The AMI BIOS Configuration Program (AMIBCP) for Aptio enables customers to modify parameters in a BIOS ROM without rebuilding from source. Developers can modify default values for BIOS setup parameters, modify default boot order in BIOS setup, view and edit sign-on and setup strings, and edit SMBIOS string data.
AMISDE is a command line tool for exporting setup data from an Aptio ROM image, including spreadsheet applications such as Microsoft Excel®. It generates a helpful summary report of BIOS setup parameters and default values that enhances productivity in testing and manufacturing.
AMIUCP is a utility that is used to pre-configure the Aptio Flash Utility (AFU). Users can insert and exchange the default command string and ROM image used in AFU to create a customized version of the utility. AMIUCP supports AFU v2.35 or AFUWINGUI v1.12 or later.
DMIEdit is a scriptable command line utility for DOS, Microsoft Windows®, Linux and the UEFI shell. The Desktop Management Interface Editor for Aptio enables developers to modify strings associated with platform SMBIOS tables (System, Base Board, Chassis, OEM string, etc). In manufacturing, use DMIEdit to embed platform serial numbers, UUID and license keys into the SMBIOS table, which identifies platforms to management software.
Aptio's Module Management Tool (MMTool) allows developers to manage firmware file modules contained within an Aptio firmware ROM image. Use MMTool to extract, replace and insert binary components such as modules, Option ROMs, microcode patches and ROM holes using its graphical or command line interface. With MMTool, developers can also create reports on the contents of an opened ROM image.
AMI's Signing Server is a robust solution for managing the signing process, Secure Firmware Update, Secure Boot and other custom signing processes. The Signing Server includes three key components to give developers precise control over the signing process: Signing Service, Signing Server Management Console and Signing Client.
The utilities listed above are available for various operating systems: Windows, DOS, Linux, BSD and EFI Shell. Please contact AMI Sales for more information.
