I downloaded a BIOS updated for my Samsung netbook, and noticed it also updated the MICOM chip. What is a MICOM chip for? I tried Googling it to no avail.
Someone asked the same question in German on another site, so I translated a few things. Turns out MICOM controls an Embedded System. In this case, it controls the keyboard.
This means that the controller for your keyboard is automatically updated with the BIOS, so that there are no conflicts.
