2.2.6. Field Replaceable Unit Identification EEPROM
A Field Replaceable Unit Identification (FRUID) EEPROM (Microchip 24AA024-I/SN) located at SMBUS address 0xA0 is connected to the SMBUS of the PCIe* interface. This FRUID EEPROM is powered by the host server’s PCIe* 3.3 V auxiliary power provided at the PCIe* slot connector. This allows the FRUID EEPROM to be readable even when 12 V power to the slot is not provided by the host server.
Note: OEM-specific part numbers may use a different SMBus address. Check with your OEM for more information.
This FRUID contains board specific information that identifies the card installed into the PCIe* slot. The FRUID contains the following information:
- Board Manufacturer
- Board Model Number
- Board Serial Number
- Location of Manufacture
- Date of Manufacture
