Hello Ganesh,

I downloaded the official Windows 10 driver from acer.com and extracted the
setup file using InstallShield [1] Cab Viewer [2]. The 30-day trial version
is sufficient to do this.

Inside the "main" setup file, there was another setup.exe for the atheros
driver itself. I extracted it using UniExtract [3].

The inner setup file contained a couple of eeprom_* files inside the "drivers"
directory. I then copied the one matching my device to "board.bin".

In my case: /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/board.bin
