It would have the name of the manufacturer of the BIOS, which is usually Award, AMI or Phoenix (and maybe the manufacturer of the chip itself such as Winbond). The mobo manufacturer doesn't make the BIOS chip, they are quite generic.
yes, i know asus uses american megatrade(AMI)bios. its just according to the motherboard manual, where it says the chip is. its a smaller one than what ive seen, and it only had 8 prong/legs on it and i know the 2 bios chip types are DIP and Plcc. and it doesn't look like either of those. its just kinda throwing me off
16 Mbit SPI Serial Flash:
SST's 25 series Serial Flash family features a four-wire, SPI-compatible interface that allows for a low pin-count package which occupies less board space and ultimately lowers total system costs. The SST25VF016B devices are enhanced with improved operating frequency and even lower power consumption than the original SST25VFxxxA devices. SST25VF016B SPI serial flash memories are manufactured with SST's proprietary, high-performance CMOS SuperFlash technology. The split-gate cell design and thick-oxide tunneling injector attain better reliability and manufacturability compared with alternate approaches. The SST25VF016B devices significantly improve performance and reliability, while lowering power consumption. The devices write (Program or Erase) with a single power supply of 2.7-3.6V for SST25VF016B. The total energy consumed is a function of the applied voltage, current, and time of application. Since for any given voltage range, the SuperFlash technology uses less current to program and has a shorter erase time, the total energy consumed during any Erase or Program operation is less than alternative flash memory technologies. The SST25VF016B device is offered in both 8-lead SOIC (200 mils) and 8-contact WSON (6mm x 5mm) packages.
