Nicolas,
Yes, IPMI is implemented as a software firmware inside the Baseboard
Management Controller (BMC).
GNU FreeIPMI only provides in-band/out-of-band management software to talk
to the BMC using industry standard IPMI protocol. If you are looking
for BMC IPMI firmware, You should look at the CoreIPM project, which
implements IPMI standard for ARM7 based core.

Hi Arnaud,

Thanks for your answer.

But what you call standard is a software IP right?

I wanted to know if this IP can be ported on our Microcontrollers
that are ARM7TDMI, ARM966E and Cortex-M3 based.

How much flash is needed for the IP? How much RAM? What peripherals?

Thanks.

Nicolas.

No, ARM966E is just arm core. Your baseboard management controller
(BMC) should implement a standard called IPMI (intelligent platform
management interface). BMC is independently powered and is on all
the time watching for errors and management commands. Typically IPMI
is used to manage server systems. Motherboards from Intel, Tyan,
Supermicro and other top hardware vendors support IPMI.

Hi Arnaud,

Our micro are ARM7TDMI core and ARM966E core, is it what you call
standard?

What are actually the requirments for the micro?

Thanks.

HI Nicolas,
Sorry for responding late. GNU FreeIPMI is developed based on IPMI 1.5 and IPMI 
2.0 standards specification. If your micro controller is standards based, it 
will work without any modification.
