      • getPlatformType

        public static int getPlatformType()
                                   throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method returns the platform type. See PLATFORM_TYPE_... definitions above for possible values.
        Returns:
        the platform type, see PLATFORM_TYPE_... above.
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
      • getCpuType

        public static int getCpuType()
                              throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method returns the CPU type; the return value may change with the introduction of new CPU types. This method should always be called together with getPlatformType, since the CPU types logic varies depending on platform type. For the ME8.x generation, the following CPU types might be returned:
        • 0 - undefined
        • 1 - Core2 non vPro
        • 2 - vPro
        • 3 - Pentium
        • 4 - Celeron
        Note that for ME8.x, in 1.5MB SKUs the CPU type returned will be 'undefined'. Also note that this method might not be backwards compatible, therefore it is highly recommended not to use this API.
        Returns:
        CPU type (see above).
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
      • getChipsetType

        public static int getChipsetType()
                                  throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method returns the chipset SKU. This method should always be called together with getPlatformType, since the chipset SKU logic varies depending on platform type and generation. Note that this method might not be backwards compatible, therefore it is highly recommended not to use this API.
        Returns:
        the chipset type.
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
      • getManageabilityType

        public static int getManageabilityType()
                                        throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method returns the manageability brand. See MANAGE_TYPE_... definitions above for possible values. This method should always be called together with getPlatformType, since the manageability brand logic varies depending on platform type and generation. Note that this method might not be backwards compatible, therefore it is highly recommended not to use this API.
        Returns:
        the manageability brand, see MANAGE_TYPE_... definitions above for possible values.
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
      • getFeatureSet

        public static int getFeatureSet()
                                 throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method returns a bitmask representing the FW features supported on this system. For ME 8.0 FW generation, the following bits are supported:
        • Bit 0 - when set to 1 represents full ME 8.0 feature set, when set to 0 represents ME 8.0 Lite feature set (i.e. no True Cove, iCLS or Sigma 1.1 support). Bit 1 - when set, the platform supports secure keyboard
        Returns:
        a bitmask representing the FW features supported on this system.
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
      • updateFeatureSet

        public static void updateFeatureSet(int featureSet,
                            int mask)
                                     throws UtilException
        Deprecated.
        This method can be used to update the feature set bitmask on this system. Only applets with relevant permissions in their manifest can use this method to update the feature set.
        Parameters:
        featureSet - the new bits to set
        mask - the mask of the bits that should be updated
        Throws:
        UtilException - if general failure occurs.
        AccessDeniedException - if applet does not have required permissions to update the feature set.
