Safety instructions
Before You Begin
Before handling the board, read the instructions and safety guidelines on the following pages to prevent
damage to the product and to ensure your own personal safety. Refer to the "Advisories" section in the
Preface for advisory conventions used in this user's guide, including the distinction between Warnings,
Cautions and Notes.
• Always use caution when handling/operating the computer. Only qualified, experienced,
authorized electronics service personnel should access the interior of the computer. The power
supplies produce high voltages and energy hazards, which can cause bodily harm.
• Use extreme caution when installing or removing components. Refer to the installation
instructions in this user's guide for precautions and procedures. If you have any questions, please
contact Kontron Technical Support
WARNING
High voltages are present inside the chassis when the unit's power cord is plugged
into an electrical outlet. Turn off system power, turn off the power supply, and then
disconnect the power cord from its source before removing the chassis cover. Turning
off the system power switch does not remove power to components.

Safety instructions
When Working Inside a Computer
Before taking covers off a computer, perform the following steps:
• Turn off the computer and any peripherals.
• Disconnect the computer and peripherals from power sources or subsystems to prevent electric
shock or system board damage. This does not apply to when hot-swapping parts.
• Follow the guidelines provided in "Preventing Electrostatic Discharge" on the following page.
• Disconnect telephone or telecommunications lines from the computer.
In addition, take note of these safety guidelines when appropriate:
• To help avoid possible damage to system boards, wait five seconds after turning off the computer
before removing a component, removing a system board, or disconnecting a peripheral device from
the computer.
• When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain-relief loop, not on the cable
itself. Some cables have a connector with locking tabs. If you are disconnecting this type of cable,
press in on the locking tabs before disconnecting the cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep
them evenly aligned to avoid bending any connector pins. Also, before connecting a cable, make
sure both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.
CAUTION
Do not attempt to service the system yourself, except as explained in this user’s
guide. Follow installation and troubleshooting instructions closely.

Safety instructions
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm system boards. Perform service at an ESD workstation and follow proper ESD
procedure to reduce the risk of damage to components. Kontron strongly encourages you to follow proper
ESD procedures, which can include wrist straps and smocks, when servicing equipment.
Take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
• When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the
component's antistatic packing material until you are ready to install the component in a
computer. Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure you are at an ESD workstation
or grounded. This will discharge any static electricity that may have built up in your body.
• When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.
• Handle all sensitive components at an ESD workstation. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and
workbench pads.
• Handle components and boards with care. Don't touch the components or contacts on a board.
Hold a board by its edges or by its metal mounting bracket.
• Do not handle or store system boards near strong electrostatic, electromagnetic, magnetic, or
radioactive fields.

1.6.1.4
FRU Data EEPROM
• FRU Data EEPROM size is 512Kbit and it includes board identification and serial number.
1.6.1.5
Hot Swap
The RTM8030 supports hot swapping by using the switch connected to the face plate lower ejector. This
switch indicates the coming hot swap action. The insertion of the RTM to a slot is always done over a non
powered connector. During the extraction procedure, the management power is disabled only when the
RTM8030 is removed. This procedure is identical to the AdvancedTCA AMC behavior.
1.6.1.5.1
Inserting the RTM8030 into the slot
The presence of the RTM is indicated by one signal. The front blade IPMC recognizes the RTM insertion when
this signal is low. As soon as inserted, the MMC on the RTM turns the blue LED ON and enables the 3.3V_SUS
to the RTM. Once the I2C link is working, the IPMC of the front blade accesses the serial EEPROM to retrieve
4
RTM8030 User's Guide
Product Description
FRU data. After knowing the type of RTM inserted, the IPMC negotiates with System Manager in order to
activate the +12V payload power. After RTM local voltages have been ramped up, the IPMC from the front
blade enables the RTM Link.
After this the IPMC informs the CPU SW there is a functional RTM blade present via standard hot swap sensor.
1.6.1.5.2
Removing the RTM8030 from the slot
The RTM_EJECT signal goes HIGH by opening the RTM lower ejector handle. This indicates to the front blade
IPMC that a hot swap action is going to take place. The IPMC then negotiates the removal with the System
manager and if it is granted, it proceeds with the removal process.
The IPMC first notifies the CPU SW of coming hot removal. After the CPU SW has disabled SAS links, it notifies
the MMC that the RTM blade can be removed. The MMC then activates reset to the RTM blade (via the
Expander), disables the RTM Link and turns OFF the payload +12V power. When it is safe to remove the RTM
blade from the slot, the MMC turns the Blue / Hot Swap LED ON. Front Blade IPMC turns OFF the management
power only when their is no RTM detected. (RTM8030 removed from the slot)

Rotary Binary Selector
The RTM8030 has a rotary binary selector which is composed of a binary coded rotary switch and a
debouncing circuit. This binary selector controls the connection from the face plate Reset and RS232 Rx/Tx
signals to the CPU blade through the zone 3 connector. The binary selector has 8 positions, from 0 to 7.
Position 0 doesn't select any group signals. Positions 1 to 7 selects corresponding group signals. When the
shaft has not reach a definite position, the position output is positon 7.
When the rotary switch is at position 1, then:
Z3_RESET1# is connected to the faceplate “reset” switch (SW5).
Z3_RS232_RX1/TX1 are connected to the faceplate selectable RS232 connector (J6-C).
When the rotary switch is at position 2, then the Z3_RESET2# and Z3_RS232_RX/TX2 are connected to the
switches SW4-SW5 and connector J6-C.
This connectivity pattern is the same up to position 7.
When the rotary switch is at position 0, then the switches SW4-SW5 and connector J6-C are not connected to
any front blade signals.
The signal Z3_RESET0# is connected to the faceplate switch SW3.
The signals Z3_RS232_RX0/TX0 are connected to the faceplate RS232 connector (J6-B).

Serial Port
The RTM8030 has two serial ports available on the RTM face plate. One serial port is permanent (always
connected to the CPU engine 0) and the other one is selected between RS232 port1 to port7 by using the
rotary binary selector. Serial ports are coming from the front blade through zone 3 connector. RS232
buffers are used on the RTM to convert LVTTL level from zone 3 to RS232 level at the face plate connector.
Both RS232 buffers are connected to the management power. Serial port works from 9 to 115 kbits/s. Both
transceivers can detect a valid RS232 level signal on the face plate RxD input signal. Those RS232 detect
signals are connected to the RTM-Link slave CPLD and the MMC.

Redundant MMC Flash Boot Block
The MMC microcontroller runs a firmware from its internal 256KB flash. It is programmed by an additional 8K
boot block. It keeps the last two copies of the MMC firmware in dedicated flash memories. The boot block
activates the MMC image and can rollback a firmware update in the MMC in case of problems.
The Boot Block itself uses code. Functions of the boot block are kept to a minimum and field updatable with
payload impact.
2.10 Hardware Management Overview
The RTM communicates with the Module Management Controller (MMC) using the IPMB_L channel.
The memory subsystem of the MMC consists of an integrated flash memory to hold the MMC operation code
and integrated RAM for data. The field replacement unit (FRU) inventory information is stored in the
nonvolatile memory on an EEPROM connected via a local I2C interface to the MMC microcontroller. It is
possible to store up to 4 KBytes within the FRU inventory information. Event generation over IPMB-L bus to
reach the front board that forward it to the ShMc ensure that 'post-mortem' logging information is available
even if the power of the RTM is disabled.
The onboard DC voltages and temperature are monitored by the MMC microcontroller device. The MMC will
send an event to the front board if any of the thresholds are exceeded.
To increase the reliability of the RTM8030 management subsystem, an external watchdog supervisor only for
the MMC is implemented. The MMC must strobe the external watchdog at 500 μsec. intervals to ensure
continuity of operation of the board's management subsystem. If the MMC ceases to strobe the watchdog
supervisor, the watchdog resets the MMC. The watchdog timeout expires after one second if strobes are not
generated. The external watchdog supervisor is not configurable and must not be confused with the IPMI
v1.5 watchdog timer commands. This external watchdog of the MMC is implemented in a separate chip.
2.10.1
Sensor Data Record (SDR)
Every sensor on the RTM is associated with a Sensor Data Record (SDR). Sensor Data Records contain
information about the sensors identification such as sensor type, sensor name, sensor unit. SDR also
contain the configuration of a specific sensor such as threshold/hystheresis, event generation capabilities
that specifies sensor behaviour. Some fields of the sensor SDR are configurable through IPMI v1.5 command
and are set to built-in initial value. Finally one field wich is the sensor owner must reflect the module
addresses that allow a system management software to identify the owner of the SDR when it is scanned from
the front board IPMC and merged within the IPMC Device SDR repository.
From IPMI prespective, the RTM8030 management controller is set up as a satellite management controller
(SMC). It does support sensor devices, and use the IPMI static sensor population feature of IPMI v1.5 to
12
RTM8030 User's Guide
Board Features
merge the hot swaped RTM sensor with the front board sensors population. The usual way the SHMC is
informed about an RTM insertion is through the RTM Module Hot Swap sensor and a radial presence line on
the RTM connector. All SDRs can be queried using Device SDR commands to the firmware. Module sensors
that have been implemented are listed below.

E-Keying has been defined in the AMC.0 R2.0 Specification to prevent module damage and prevent
misoperation and also to verify port connection compatibility. The FRU data contains the RTM point-to-point
connectivity record as described in Section 3.9.2 of the AMC.0 R2.0 specification. The records are formatted
as per AMC.0 R2.0 but the I/O ports assignation are OEM since AMC.0 does not specify RTM.
The Set/Get AMC Port State IPMI commands defined by the AMC.0 specification are used for either granting
or rejecting the E-keys.

MMC Firmware Code
MMC firmware code is organized into boot code and operational code, both of which are stored in a flash
module. Upon an MMC reset, the MMC executes the boot code and performs the following:
1 Self test to verify the status of its hardware and memory.
2 Performs a checksum of the operational code.
3 Set operational state that tells the boot block the firmware operate correctly.
Upon successful verification of the operational code checksum, the firmware will jump to the operational
code.

MMC Firmware Upgrade Procedure
The upgrade procedure is compliant to PICMG HPM.1. MMC Firmware upgrades can be done by using
IPMITOOL from sourceforge from the front blade or remotely on the chassis. It has been designed to upgrade
through any IPMI interface without payload impact.

RTM8030 User's Guide
Board Features
2.10.7
Boot Block Upgrade Procedure
Type the following to perform MMC firmware upgrade
ipmifwu -fb <file> -P /dev/ttyS0 -M rtm -p <ENTER>
Note:
During boot block firmware upgrade the MMC is held in reset
2.10.7.1
Hot-Swap Process
The RTM8030 has the ability to be hot-swapped in and out of the front board. The onboard MMC manages the
RTM's power-up and power-down transitions. The list below illustrates this process for power down request.
1 Ejector latch is opened. HOT_SWAP_PB# assertion. MMC firmware detects the assertion of this signal.
2 MMC sends "Module Handle Open" event message to the front board. The corresponding M state of the
front board moves from M4-> M5.
3 The front board moves from M5 -> M6 if the SHMC grants the request. The front board IPMC sends the FRU
control requesting quiesced state to the RTM.
4 The firmware deasserts payload power and sends "Module Quiesced" event message to the front board
where it transitions from M6 to M1 state.
2.10.7.2
Hot-Swap LED
The RTM8030 supports a blue Hot Swap LED mounted on the front panel. This LED indicates when it is safe to
remove the RTM from the front board. The on-board MMC drives this LED to indicate the hot-swap state. The
following states are possible:
Table 2-14:Hot-Swap LED Description
LED state
Description
OFF
M4 state; normal state when board is in operation.
ON
M1 state; ready for hot swap.
Short blink
M5 state; deactivation request
Long blink
M2 state; activation request.
When the RTM latch is disengaged from the faceplate, the hot swap switch embedded in the PCB will assert a
"HOT_SWAP_PB#" signal to the MMC, and the MMC will send “Module Handle Open” event message to the
front board which moves from the M4 state to the M5 state. At the M5 state, the front board will ask the SHMC
(or Shelf Manager) for permission to move the RTM to the M6 state. Then the IPMC of the front board,
through IPMB-L, will set the RTM Hot Swap LED to indicate this state with a short blink. Once permission is
received from the SHMC or higher-level software, the front board will move to the M6 state.
The SHMC or higher level software can reject the request to move to the M6 state. If this occurs, the RTM will
returns the Hot Swap LED to a solid off condition, indicating that the RTM has returned to M4 state.
If the RTM reaches the M6 state through an extraction request through the RTM handle latch, the MMC
communicates to the front board that the module must discontinue operation in preparation for removal.
24
RTM8030 User's Guide
Board Features
The Hot Swap LED continues to flash during this preparation time, just like it does at the M5 state. When
main RTM payload power is successfully removed from the RTM slot, the Hot Swap LED remains lit, indicating
it is safe to remove the RTM from the chassis.
2.11 Debugging Features
All LEDs are “user” overritable by using standard PICMG LED api.
2.11.1
Hot Swap LED (LED0)
The Blue / Hot Swap LED indicates the hot swap status of the RTM. The LED is ON when it is safe to remove the
RTM from the slot. During normal operation, this LED is OFF.
2.11.2
Out Of Service (LED1)
The AdvancedTCA LED1 is red or amber and indicates an Out-of-Service (OOS) condition. During normal
operation, the OOS LED is OFF. This LED is ON during firmware upgrade and is user configurable if needed by a
customer application.
2.11.3
Healthy LED (LED2)
The AdvancedTCA LED2 is green or amber and indicates a healthy condition. The healthy LED indicates if the
blade is powered up and all voltages and temperatures are within specifications. During normal operation,
this LED is ON (green). This LED is also ON (amber) when one of the RTM8030 voltage or temperature fails.

Board Hot Swap and Installation
Because of the high-density pinout of the hard-metric connector, some precautions must be taken when
connecting or disconnecting a board to/from a backplane:
1 Rail guides must be installed on the enclosure to slide the board to the backplane.
2 Do not force the board if there is mechanical resistance while inserting the board.
3 Screw the frontplate to the enclosure to firmly attach the board to its enclosure.
4 Use extractor handles to disconnect and extract the board from its enclosure.
WARNING
Always use a grounding wrist wrap before installing or removing the board from a
chassis.
3.2.1
Installing the RTM in the chassis
To install the RTM:
1 Remove the filler panel of the slot.
2 Ensure the board is configured properly.
3 Carefully align the PCB edges in the bottom and top card guide.
4 Insert the board in the system until it makes contact with the CPU board.
5 Using both ejector handles, engage the board in the CPU board connectors until both ejectors are locked.
6 Fasten screws at the top and bottom of the faceplate.
3.2.2
Removing the RTM from the chassis
To remove the RTM:
1 Unscrew the top and the bottom screw of the faceplate.
2 Unlock the lower handle latch.
3 Wait until the blue LED is fully ON, this mean that the hot swap sequence is ready for board removal.
4 Use both ejectors to disengage the board from the CPU board.
5 Pull the board out of the chassis.
