Insyde brings UEFI BIOS to TI OMAP platform supporting next-version Windows
Press release; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 29 June 2011]

Insyde Software has announced the delivery of UEFI BIOS and engineering services to customers designing ultra-thin laptops, tablets and mobile internet devices based on the ARM-based OMAP 4 platform from Texas Instruments (TI).

Insyde said it will ensure that InsydeH2O has complete support for the OMAP platform features, complies with the most current UEFI specifications , and offers customers the ability to easily customize their OMAP firmware for product differentiation.

Insyde indicated that earlier this month at the Computex Taipei trade event, Microsoft disclosed details of the next version of Windows code-named "Windows 8." Among this disclosure, Michael Angiulo, corporate vice president of the Planning, Hardware and PC Ecosystem team at Microsoft stated that UEFI is an important area of engagement for the next-version Windows, as it represents a major shift in the direction for all PCs and is required on ARM.

"TI's OMAP platform is relied upon to deliver superior user experiences. As consumers shift to tablets and ultrathin laptops for their mobile computing needs, they expect that instant-on access they've come to love on their smartphones to shift with them. The introduction of Insyde Software's UEFI technology enables the OMAP platform to meet that expectation," said Deepu Talla, general manager, OMAP mobile computing, wireless business unit, TI.

"Combining the OMAP platform's high-performance and ultra-low power consumption with InsydeH2O's stability and robust feature set gives our mutual mobile computing customers new levels of design opportunity and innovation potential, all with a software development environment with which they are already familiar," said Aven Chuang, SVP and GM, Personal Computing Group, Insyde.
