1.11.1.1
System States and Power States
Under ACPI, the operating system directs all system and device power state transitions. The
operating system puts devices in and out of low-power states based on user preferences and
knowledge of how devices are being used by applications. Devices that are not being used can be
turned off. The operating system uses information from applications and user settings to put the
system as a whole into a low-power state.
Table 4 lists the power states supported by the Compute Stick along with the associated system
power targets. See the ACPI specification for a complete description of the various system and
power states.

Last Power State feature in the BIOS Setup program’s Boot menu.
1.11.2.2
Instantly Available PC Technology
Instantly Available PC technology enables the Compute Stick to enter the ACPI S3 (Suspend-toRAM) sleep-state. While in the S3 sleep-state, the computer will appear to be off (the power
supply is off, and the front panel off). When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the system
quickly returns to its last known wake state. Table 5 on page 17 lists the devices and events that
can wake the Compute Stick from the S3 state.

Intel® Identity Protection Technology
Intel Identity Protection Technology (Intel IPT) provides a simple way for websites and
enterprises to validate that a user is logging in from a trusted computer. This is accomplished
by using the Intel Manageability Engine embedded in the chipset to generate a six-digit number
that, when coupled with a user name and password, will generate a One-Time Password (OTP)
when visiting Intel IPT-enabled websites. Intel IPT eliminates the need for the additional token
or key fob required previously for two-factor authentication.

Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
Only available on the STK2MV64CC and the STK2M364CC. The TPM version 2.0 component is
specifically designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today’s
software by providing a protected space for key operations and other security critical tasks. Using
both hardware and software, the TPM protects encryption and signature keys at their most
vulnerable stages—operations when the keys are being used unencrypted in plain-text form. The
TPM shields unencrypted keys and platform authentication information from software-based
attacks.
NOTE
Support for TPM version 2.0 requires a UEFI-enabled operating system.

Memory Resources
2.1.1
Addressable Memory
The Intel Compute Stick utilizes up to 4 GB of addressable system memory. Typically the address
space that is allocated for PCI Conventional bus add-in cards, PCI Express configuration space,
BIOS (SPI Flash device), and chipset overhead resides above the top of DRAM (total system
memory). On a system that has 8 GB of system memory installed, it is not possible to use all of
the installed memory due to system address space being allocated for other system critical
functions. These functions include the following:

BIOS/SPI Flash device
 64 Mb on STK2M3W64CC and STK2M364CC





 128 Mb on STK2MV64CC
Local APIC (19 MB)
Direct Media Interface (40 MB)
PCI Express configuration space (256 MB)
SoC base address registers PCI Express ports (up to 256 MB)
Integrated graphics shared memory (up to 512 MB; 64 MB by default)
The Intel Compute Stick provides the capability to reclaim the physical memory overlapped by the
memory mapped I/O logical address space. Physical memory is remapped from the top of usable
DRAM boundary to the 4 GB boundary to an equivalent sized logical address range located just
above the 4 GB boundary. All installed system memory can be used when there is no overlap of
system addresses.

Overview of BIOS Features
3.1
Introduction
The Compute Stick uses an Intel BIOS that is stored in the Serial Peripheral Interface Flash
Memory (SPI Flash) and can be updated using a disk-based program. The SPI Flash contains the
BIOS Setup program, POST, the PCI auto-configuration utility, and Plug and Play support. The
initial production BIOSs are identified as CCSKLM30.86A or CCSKLM5V.86A.
The BIOS Setup program can be used to view and change the BIOS settings for the computer, and
to update the system BIOS. The BIOS Setup program is accessed by pressing the <F2> key after
the Power-On Self-Test (POST) memory test begins and before the operating system boot begins.
3.2
BIOS Flash Memory Organization
The Serial Peripheral Interface Flash Memory (SPI Flash) includes a 128 Mb (16384 KB) flash
memory device for STK2MV64CC. A 64 Mb (8192 KB) flash memory device for STK2M3W64CC
and STK2M364CC.
3.3
System Management BIOS (SMBIOS)
SMBIOS is a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compliant method for managing computers in a
managed network.
The main component of SMBIOS is the Management Information Format (MIF) database, which
contains information about the computing system and its components. Using SMBIOS, a system
administrator can obtain the system types, capabilities, operational status, and installation dates
for system components. The MIF database defines the data and provides the method for
accessing this information. The BIOS enables applications such as third-party management
software to use SMBIOS. The BIOS stores and reports the following SMBIOS information:




BIOS data, such as the BIOS revision level
Fixed-system data, such as peripherals, serial numbers, and asset tags
Resource data, such as memory size, cache size, and processor speed
Dynamic data, such as event detection and error logging
Non-Plug and Play operating systems require an additional interface for obtaining the SMBIOS
information. The BIOS supports an SMBIOS table interface for such operating systems. Using this
support, an SMBIOS service-level application running on a non-Plug and Play operating system
can obtain the SMBIOS information. Additional information can be found in the BIOS under the
Additional Information header under the Main BIOS page.
29
3.4
Legacy USB Support
Legacy USB support enables USB devices to be used even when the operating system’s USB
drivers are not yet available. Legacy USB support is used to access the BIOS Setup program, and
to install an operating system that supports USB. By default, Legacy USB support is set to
Enabled.
Legacy USB support operates as follows:
1. When you apply power to the computer, legacy support is disabled.
2. POST begins.
3. Legacy USB support is enabled by the BIOS allowing you to use a USB keyboard to enter and
configure the BIOS Setup program and the maintenance menu.
4. POST completes.
5. The operating system loads. While the operating system is loading, USB keyboards and mice
are recognized and may be used to configure the operating system. (Keyboards and mice are
not recognized during this period if Legacy USB support was set to Disabled in the BIOS Setup
program.)
6. After the operating system loads the USB drivers, all legacy and non-legacy USB devices are
recognized by the operating system, and Legacy USB support from the BIOS is no longer
used.
To install an operating system that supports USB, verify that Legacy USB support in the BIOS
Setup program is set to Enabled and follow the operating system’s installation instructions.
3.5
BIOS Updates
The BIOS can be updated using either of the following utilities, which are available on the Intel
World Wide Web site:



Intel Express BIOS Update Utility, which enables automated updating while in the Windows
environment. Using this utility, the BIOS can be updated from a file on a hard disk, a USB
drive (a flash drive or a USB hard drive), or a CD-ROM, or from the file location on the Web.
Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility, which requires booting from DOS. Using this utility, the
BIOS can be updated from a file on a USB drive (a flash drive or a USB hard drive), or a USB
CD-ROM drive.
Intel F7 switch during POST allows a user to select where the BIOS .bio file is located and
perform the update from that location/device.
All utilities verify that the updated BIOS matches the target system to prevent accidentally
installing an incompatible BIOS.
NOTE
Review the instructions distributed with the upgrade utility before attempting a BIOS update.
