AM4901

Cost optimized MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub)
Specifications
  • Cost optimized design by focusing to essential requirements
  • System management + Ethernet Switching
  • Front panel GbE uplink
  • MCH update and cross-over Channel

The AM4901 represents a MicroTCA compliant MCH with a cost improved design. It supports the Kontron family of cost optimized MicroTCA platforms, as well as a range of other 3rd party platforms.
The two main functions of an MCH are system management (i.e. IPMI controlled power management, electronic keying, hot-swap of AMCs) and Ethernet switching. The AM4901 contains an unmanaged BCM5396 Ethernet switch, which allows to simplify the design and to improve costs (lower cost components, no switch controller, no software for switch controller).

Linux IPMI API Datasheet
IPMI-API is a C-based library that provides access to IPMI enabled devices. The API hides IPMI-specifics in wide ranges. The main intention of IPMI-API is to retrieve easily sensor readings, thresholds etc. from a CPU-Board with IPMI Subsystem without extensive IPMI knowledge.
