FWH (FirmWare Hub) on motherboard

Short for firmware hub, FWH is part of the Intel Accelerated Hub Architecture containing both the system BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) and integrated video BIOS on one component. The firmware hub connects directly to the ICH (I/O Controller Hub) without requiring an ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) bus. The picture shows an example of an FWH chip in a PLCC (Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier).
