The Aptio Advantage

The Aptio Advantage

As the world's top BIOS vendor and a leader in the industry since 1985, there are a number of unique advantages that American Megatrends provides its OEM and ODM customers with Aptio UEFI Firmware solutions. In fact, AMI created Aptio to specifically address OEM and ODM issues with both BIOS and UEFI. AMI simplifies BIOS development as the only BIOS vendor with a complete array of end-to-end products, tools and services to support the entire computing infrastructure and provide clear benefits to manufacturers of server, embedded, tablet, client and ARM products.

Simplified BIOS Development

It's simple: Aptio makes projects easy to migrate, easy to maintain and easy to add new features, thanks to its modular structure, powerful tools and utilities, integrated development environment, and global support network.

Superior Design

AMI's unique eModule structure makes changes at source level, enabling drop-in of custom BIOS and UEFI features on top of the common BIOS core without touching source code.

Modular Architecture

Modular components such as the FastBoot and Secure Firmware Implementation eModules simply snap into Aptio BIOS projects and automatically add setup options to the Setup Menu.

Quick Porting of BIOS from CRB

Simplified BIOS development means rapid & consistent CRB bring-up time on many different types of CRBs. At the end of power-on Aptio is booting directly to Microsoft Windows®.

Superior Development Environment

AMI's Visual eBIOS (VeB) is tailor-made for Aptio development, with integrated source control, project management and easy changes to project parameters, configurations and more through intuitive wizards.

Simplified Diag, Debug and Modifications

No source code access? No problem! AMI has ROM Utilities and source-level diagnostic and debug tools to identify issues and make changes directly at the source code level.
