The PIP8-11 has replaced the former PIP8 versions. The following information and downloads are valid for the PIP8-1x versions only. Drivers for the older PIP8-1/2 can be found here.
BIOS upgrades are available as Windows executable program files. Running the downloaded
.exe file on a Windows PC, allows you to create a bootable floppy containing a minimal
FreeDOS installation, the BIOS image, and all tools
required to update the BIOS. Booting this floppy on the MPL SBC will update the existing BIOS
after the normal "Are you sure?" questions. Additionally, the BIOS update floppy allows you
to backup the existing BIOS in case you want to revert the upgrade. Please refer to the
BIOS user manual for more information.
Please update the BIOS only if you are experiencing problems and you are sure that the new BIOS revision will solve it. Careless updating may result to more problems. If you are not sure about the implications, please contact MPL AG.
Please check your BIOS setup screen first, to make sure the MEV number of the currently used BIOS and the number of the BIOS upgrade matches!
If you can not find your MEV number on the list below, please contact to get the newest BIOS version. Please provide us with the precise product identifier, product serial number and your current BIOS MEV number.
