COM-HPC Integrates IPMI to Improve QoS for Edge Servers - Blog

September 28, 2021

PICMG launched a COM-HPC interface specification for the management of embedded systems platforms. The goal is to help edge server engineers manage systems remotely. For example, if a system is hung up, an IT administrator can hit reset with the same effect as if he had gone to a factory floor or other site. The specification targets edge computer designs based on COM-HPC Computer-on-Modules with a view to simplifying maintenance and improving quality of service.

July 21, 2021

The PICMG COM-HPC team has met another key milestone. The Platform Management Interface (PMI) specification has been ratified and published! This marks the first time that platform management capabilities are defined for a Computer-on-Module standard. PMI enables critical edge server requirements including reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS). COM-HPC® IPMI is an addendum to the COM-HPC open standard, which provides a framework of platform management features for COM-HPC modules. The framework is intended to guide how to achieve interoperability between COM-HPC modules from different vendors and combinations of carrier boards. In addition to targeting an intelligent platform management interface, this specification also touches on Redfish implementation.
