The Intelligent Platform Interface, or IPMI, is a widely adopted industry standard that

independently from the main processor. Management tasks are executed by a specialized micro-controller, or Baseboard Management Controller (BMC), that operates on standby power - independent of the system’s main power - to periodically poll system health variables such as temperature, fans, voltage, power supplies and chassis intrusion. When discovering any anomaly, the BMC can log the event, send alerts via LAN and initiate recovery actions such as system reset. MegaRAC PM-Lite side-band communication capability enables messaging through the system NIC via LAN. Side-band management combines the low-cost design of an in-band management scenario with basic out-ofband manageability, ideal for entry and mid-range blades and servers. It is also a space efficient solution that does require an extra NIC for management purposes. Side-band based management simplifies deployment complexity providing manageability through the same NIC port (easy cabling) and the same IP address (easy discovery and server association). MegaRAC PM-Lite 2.0 features include Serial over LAN capability, RMCP+ enhanced authentication, encryption and firmware firewall. Along with the firmware solution, AMI can provide the following utilities: > Platform Manager Configuration Program (PMCP) for graphical firmware porting and sensor configuration. This graphical porting toolkit simplifies all aspects of development with a “drag-n-drop” GUI interface to configure BMC I2C buses and sensor layout. > Platform Development Kit (PDK) for enabling OEMs to add their own functionality and customizations.

AMI’s reference design is extensible, expandable, portable, dependable and easy to deploy. Reference design schematics are available to OEMs to simplify the design process.
