2.4.1. Field Replaceable Unit Identification (FRUID) EEPROM

A Field Replaceable Unit Identification (FRUID) EEPROM (Microchip 24AA024-I/SN) located at default SMBUS address 0xA0 is connected to the SMBUS of the PCIe* interface. The PCIe* 3.3 V Auxiliary power provided at the PCIe* slot connector on the host server powers the FRUID EEPROM. This allows the FRUID EEPROM to be readable even when 12 V power to the slot is not provided by the host server.

This FRUID contains board specific information that identify the card installed into the PCIe* slot. The FRUID contains the following information:
  • Board Manufacturer
  • Board Model Number
  • Board Serial Number
  • Location of Manufacturer
  • Date of Manufacture
