Insyde® Software Speeds BIOS Development for New Platforms 

Integrated Development Environment Leverages Intel’s Platform Configuration Technology

COMPUTEX - TAIPEI, TAIWAN – May 28, 2019 – Insyde® Software, a leading provider of UEFI BIOS and systems management software, today announced the addition of Intel’s PCT (Platform Configuration Tool) technology into H2OIDE™, Insyde’s UEFI BIOS integrated development environment, which will allow their customers to dramatically speed up BIOS development for new platforms. 

Leveraging both the hardware schematics and an extensive catalog of components, the PCT technology detects how GPIOs are connected and automatically configures the BIOS based on the devices being used. This technology is integrated into Insyde Software’s comprehensive H2OIDE development tool, which also provides benefits such as in-depth code views, advanced editing and code search functions, set up of power-on settings and much more.  

“Product developers already have details of their hardware design embedded in their schematics, so why not use that information to configure the BIOS?” said Alan Lo, Senior Director of the Personal Computing Group at Insyde Software. “The benefits to our customers are widespread, including reduced costs, faster time to market, less dependency on specific skilled engineers, and an overall reduction in complexity of new platform development,” added Lo.

For more details and demonstrations of H2OIDE featuring PCT technology, please visit the company during Computex Taipei, May 28-31, 2019 at the W Hotel Taipei, Suite 26F 2630.
