Complete ATCA IPMI Test Suite and Validation or VT027/VT028 Development
VadaTech designed the ATC001 simulator in the ATCA form factor to test, capture and validate I2C traffic on the Intelligent Platform Management Bus (IPMB). The ATC001 utilizes an integrated VT001 IPMI controller to monitor or inject IPMI packets into the shelf. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) validates and displays the IPMI packets or schedules IPMI messages for injection into the shelf. The GUI application communicates with the integrated VT001 IPMI controller through an Ethernet port on the front panel or the rear (base channel on Zone two).
In the Zone 3 area, the ATC001 has eleven I2C connectors for expansion to other parts of the chassis or external devices. The ATC001 could facilitate creation of a robust test environment and real world simulation.
The ATC001 can also be loaded with the VadaTech VT027/VT028 IPMI controller based on the NXP LPC2138 Processor. This optional load allows development and evaluation of the VadaTech VT027/VT028 IPMI solution. The VT027/VT028 can manage up to eight AMC slots and connects directly to the ATCA IPMI bus.
