2018-07-16Release 1.05
  • Note: BC FW version 433 is included with this BIOS update to synchronize with the release board version.
  • Updated CPU microcode to version M0F3067990A. This adds support for Intel® Atom™ Processor E3800 series (Bay Trail) D1 version silicon, which addresses Intel Atom Processor E3800 series (Bay Trail) erratum VLI89. This also addresses the Spectre security vulnerability.
  • Changed the "Network" option default in "Advanced CSM Configuration" to "Legacy".
  • Changed the "Boot Option Filter" option default in "Advanced → CSM Configuration" to "UEFI and Legacy".
  • Unhide the "Serial Port 1" option in Advanced → Module Serial Ports. The default remains disabled.
  • Enabled the "Hot Plug" option for PCI Express Port 0 only in "Chipset → PCI Express Configuration". This resolves an Ethernet related Linux boot hang issue.
  • Changed the "SCC eMMC Support" option in "Advanced → SCC Configuration" to "Enable eMMC 4.41 Support". This improves eMMC device detection after a cold boot.
  • Fixed a microSD card instability issue.
