Plugin: QSI Dock


This plugin uses the MCU to write all the dock firmware components. The MCU version is provided by the DMC bcdDevice.

This plugin supports the following protocol ID:

  • com.qsi.dock

GUID Generation

These devices use the standard USB DeviceInstanceId values, e.g.

  • USB\VID_047D&PID_808D

Update Behavior

The device usually presents in runtime mode, but on detach re-enumerates with the same USB PID in an unlocked mode. On attach the device again re-enumerates back to the runtime locked mode.

Vendor ID Security

The vendor ID is set from the USB vendor.

External Interface Access

This plugin requires read/write access to /dev/bus/usb.

Version Considerations

This plugin has been available since fwupd version 1.8.8.
