Private Data Beacon. Private Data Beacons can be found in debris fields inside some Degraded Emissions and Encoded Emissions signal sources. They can be targeted and scanned for Common and Very Common data.. To collect the data, target the beacon, approach it to within 200 meters, and centre it in the ship's field of view.
Control software for consumer level devices typically follows the manufacturer's specification, unless it has been modified and these changes can be used by other interested parties. — Source.

Captured from settlement data point networks. Embedded systems typically require specific firmware for their operation. There is a black market for modifications to the base firmware, often for performance tuning or other reasons. — Source. Modified Embedded Firmware is an Encoded Material introduced in v2.1.

You've created additional "purpose" for every activity in the game, and it makes a …
Some Encoded USSes, when they have a private data beacon, also drop those sometime. I got so many of them that I had to dump some to get them down to 40. I got so many of them that I had to dump some to get them down to 40.
So I'm after the Modified Consumer Firmware thingie, as I'd like to try the second level of cannon mods at Tod. I see at Inara that it is a common element, can get it at signal sources and settlement data points. I seem not to have any luck thought - tried many signal sources, but do not really know what type I should look for. And I have no idea what the settlement data points are.
Several of the basic weapons mods in Engineers require modified consumer firmware. Apparently, they can be found in USS's and as mission rewards. Well, after several days of looking for it, I've found exactly one of these, as a mission reward. But only one. Meanwhile, I have dozens of copies of several "very rare" pieces of data and my ship is pretty much filled with various materials, but ...
