Document Table of Contents Board Management Controller Overview

The Board Management Controller (BMC) is responsible for controlling, monitoring and giving low-level access to board features. The BMC microcontroller interfaces with on-board sensors, the FPGA and the flash, and it controls power and resets. The microcontroller communicates over PCIe I2C using:
  • Platform Level Data Model (PLDM) for Platform Monitoring and Control version 1.1.1
  • The Open Programmable Acceleration Engine (OPAE) FPGA tool

The firmware that runs on the BMC microcontroller is field upgradeable over PCIe.

You can flash the BMC firmware and read sensor data with the OPAE commands fpgasupdate and fpgainfo.

For more details, refer to the Board Management Controller section.
