Description: Identify, read, write, erase, and verify BIOS/ROM/flash chips
  flashrom is a tool for identifying, reading, writing, verifying and 
  flash chips. It's often used to flash BIOS/EFI/coreboot/firmware/optionROM
  images in-system using a supported mainboard, but it also supports 
flashing of
  network cards (NICs), SATA controller cards, and other external 
devices which
  can program flash chips.

  It supports a wide range of DIP32, PLCC32, DIP8, SO8/SOIC8, 
TSOP32/40/48, and
  BGA chips, which use various protocols such as LPC, FWH, parallel 
flash, or

  The tool can be used to flash BIOS/firmware images for example -- be it
  proprietary BIOS images or coreboot (previously known as LinuxBIOS) 

  It can also be used to read the current existing BIOS/firmware from a
