SPI Read

Below are the relevant bytes for a raw IPMI SPI "read data" command
NetFN   0x32
CMD     0x34
Params  PortID (0-3)
        Address LS Byte
        Address MS byte
        Count (I recommend <20)

SPI Write

Below are the relevant bytes for a raw IPMI SPI "write data" command
NetFN   0x32
CMD     0x33
Params  PortID (0-3)
        Address LS Byte
        Address MS byte
        Count (I recommend <20)
        Byte 1
        ...
        Byte n

Read SPI Status

Below are the relevant bytes for raw IPMI SPI "read status register" command
NetFN   0x32
CMD     0x31
Params  1: Port ID (0-3)
Return  1: bit 7: HF1
           bit 6: HF2
           bit 5: CFGRDY
           bit 4: REQCFG
           bit 3-0: reserved

Write SPI Control

Below are the relevant bytes for a raw IPMI SPI "write control register" command. For the purposes of the AMC13, we really only care about the CFGRDY bit
NetFN   0x32
CMD     0x32
Params  1: Port ID (0-3)
        2: bit 7: select UHF for update
           bit 6: select LHF for update
           bit 5: select CFGRDY for update
           bit 4-2: 0
           bit 1: SET selected flags
           bit 0: CLEAR selected flags

Get Non-Volatile Area Info

Below are the relevant bytes for a raw IPMI SPI "read NV area info" command
Get Nonvolatile Area Info (Partial):
NetFN    0x32
CMD      0x40
Params   1: 0
Return   1: 0
         ...
         15: FPGA Config Area LS Byte
         16: FPGA Config Area MS Byte
         17: FPGA Config Area Size (32 byte units)

Read Non-Volatile Memory

Below are the relevant bytes for a raw IPMI SPI "read NV memory" command
Raw Nonvolatile Read:
NetFN    0x32
CMD      0x42
Params   1: Offset LS
         2: Offset MS
         3: Length (<=20)
Return   $Data

Using ipmitool

You can issue these command using the OS supplied ipmitool as follows.

To read:

   $ ipmitool -H 192.168.1.41 -U '' -P '' -T 0x82 -b 7 -t 0x76 raw 0x32 0x34 1 11 0 4
-t 0x76 0x76 is 0x70 + slot*2 (e.g. slot 3) or 0xa4 for special case of slot 13
0x32 0x34 0x32 means UWMMC special command
0x34 is configuration read
1 11 0 4 1 is device select (0=T1, 1=T2)
11 0 is address (lsb msb)
4 is byte count

To write:

  $ ipmitool -H 192.168.1.41 -U '' -P '' -T 0x82 -b 7 -t 0x76 raw 0x32 0x33 0 0 0 6 0x03 0xff 0xff 0xff 0x00 0xc0
0x32 x33 0x33 is configuration write
0 0 0 6 device select, address, count (=6 e.g.)
0x03 0xff ... data to write

The script readNVmem.py will dump 40 bytes starting at FPGA_CONFIG_AREA_BYTE_OFFSET. This area is formatted as follows in MMCV2.1:

Overall Header
Offset Description
0 Format flag (0 if initialized, 0xff if not)
1 Flags[1]
2 Offset 0 (0xff if uninitialized)
3 Offset 1 (0xff if uninitialized)
4 Offset 2 (0xff if uninitialized)
5 Header checksum

Notes:

  1. Flag bits:
    1. bit 0 set if FPGA 0 image defined
    2. bit 1 set if FPGA 1 image defined
    3. bit 2 set if FPGA 2 image define
    4. bit 7 set to replace first byte with slot ID

Next come 0-3 FPGA configuration records, with a 5 byte header and variable size data area

FPGA Configuration Header
Offset Description
0 Destination addr LSB
1 Destination addr MSB
2 Record length (not including header)
3 Record checksum
4 Header checksum

After the header is the actual configuration record data. Currently the length is 0x0b.

Offset Description
0 Slot ID if bit 7 of flags set (NOTE: doesn't seem to work in v2.1)
1-4 Net mask (AMC13 ignores)
5-8 IP address
9-10 Boot vector (AMC13 ignores)

Here is the contents of the configuration data for a sample AMC13:

--FPGA 0 header
 00 address LSB
 00 address MSB
 0b length = 11
 59 checksum
 9c checksum
--FPGA 0 record
 00           Slot number
 ff ff ff 00  Net mask
 c0 a8 01 41  IP address
 00 00        Boot vector

--FPGA 1 header
 00  address LSB
 00  address MSB
 0b  length = 11
 58  checksum
 9d  checksum
--FPGA 1 record
 00             Slot number
 ff ff ff 00    Net mask
 c0 a8 01 42    IP address
 00 00          Boot vector
