Intel® 82551QM/ER/IT EEPROM Map, Programming Information (AP-471)
Introduction and Scope
This application note describes the 82551QM/ER/IT EEPROM and its contents. The EEPROM is used for hardware and software configuration and is read by software to determine specific design features.
The 82551QM Fast Ethernet PCI controller supports bi-directional ASF or the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) interface that enables a connection with alerting and management controllers such as the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) solutions and Baseboard Management Controllers (BMCs). 82551ER/IT Fast Ethernet PCI controllers do not support ASF or TCO.
Unless otherwise specified, all numbers in this document use the following numbering conventions:
• Numbers with a suffix of “b” are binary (base 2).
• Numbers without a suffix are decimal (base 10).
• Numbers with a suffix of “h” are hexadecimal (base 16).
