Renamed document to comprehend general ACPI Functional Fixed Hardware (FFH) interface definitions and vendor specific object interfaces. Added _PDC[11] bit definition Added _PDC / _OSC [12] bit definition Revision Date April 2004 May 2004 June 2005 March 2006 September 2006 January 2014 4 Interface Specification Introduction 1 1.1 Introduction Overview The Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) specification describes a number of interfaces that are vendor specific. These include both the concept of the “Function Fixed Hardware” (FFH) interface, which was introduced in revision 2.0, as well as vendor-specific ACPI namespace object definitions. For specific interfaces, ACPI allows a functional equivalent interface to be declared and implemented via vendor specific hardware registers along with vendor prescribed software manipulation of these registers. It is the vendor’s responsibility to convey the interface’s register descriptions and required software manipulation Read the full Intel® Processor Vendor-Specific ACPI.
