Decompiling ACPI Tables

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) is a specification which defines platform-independent interfaces for hardware discovery, configuration, power management and monitoring. It was initially developed by Intel, Microsoft and Toshiba in 1996 and revised regularly since then. In early 2013, stewardship of the specification was transferred to the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface Forum (UEFI). The latest version of the specification is 5.1 which was released in July 2014.
