Corporation.
Intel® Active Management Technology requires the platform to have an Intel® AMT-enabled chipset, network hardware and software, connection with a
power source and a network connection.
64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications
enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance
will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Consult with your system vendor for more information.
No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Intel® Trusted Execution Technology is a security technology under development
by Intel and requires for operation a computer system with Intel® Virtualization Technology, a Intel Trusted Execution Technology-enabled Intel
processor, chipset, BIOS, Authenticated Code Modules, and an Intel or other Intel Trusted Execution Technology compatible measured virtual machine
monitor. In addition, Intel Trusted Execution Technology requires the system to contain a TPMv1.2 as defined by the Trusted Computing Group and
specific software for some uses.
Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses,
certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and
may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.

Nomenclature
Errata are design defects or errors. These may cause the Product Name’s behavior to
deviate from published specifications. Hardware and software designed to be used with
any given stepping must assume that all errata documented for that stepping are
present on all devices.
Specification Changes are modifications to the current published specifications.
These changes will be incorporated in any new release of the specification.
Specification Clarifications describe a specification in greater detail or further
highlight a specification’s impact to a complex design situation. These clarifications will
be incorporated in any new release of the specification.
Documentation Changes include typos, errors, or omissions from the current
published specifications. These will be incorporated in any new release of the
specification.
Note:
Errata remain in the specification update throughout the product’s lifecycle or until a
particular stepping is no longer commercially available. Under these circumstances,
errata removed from the specification update are archived and available upon request.
Specification changes, specification clarifications and documentation changes are
removed from the specification update when the appropriate changes are made to the
appropriate product specification or user documentation (datasheets, manuals, etc.).

Comments
Note: Device and Revision ID is always the
same as D26:F2.
NOTES:
1.
ICH9 contains two SATA controllers. The SATA Device ID is dependant upon which SATA
mode is selected by BIOS and what RAID capabilities exist in the component.
2.
Loaded from EEPROM. If EEPROM contains either 0000h or FFFFh in the Device ID location,
then 294Ch is used. Refer to the ICH9 NVM Map and Programming Guide for LAN Device
IDs.
3.
The SATA RAID Controller Device ID may reflect a different value based on Bit 7 of
D31:F2:Offset 9Ch.

Errata
Errata
1.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family UHCI Hang with USB Reset
Problem:
When SW initiates a Host Controller Reset or a USB Global Reset while concurrent
traffic occurs on at least three UHCI controllers, the UHCI controller(s) may hang.
Note:
Implication:
The issue has only been replicated in a synthetic reset test environment.
System may hang.
Workaround: BIOS workaround available. See latest BIOS Spec Update for details.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
2.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family 1.5 Gb/s SATA Signal
Voltage Level
Problem:
The ICH9 1.5Gb/s SATA transmit buffers have been designed to maximize performance
and robustness over a variety of routing scenarios. As a result, the ICH9 SATA 1.5 Gb/s
(Gen1i and Gen1m) transmit signaling voltage levels may exceed the maximum
motherboard TX connector and device RX connector voltage specification (section 7.2.1
of Serial ATA Specification, rev 2.5).
Implication:
None known.
Workaround: None.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
3.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family High-speed USB 2.0 VHSOH
Problem:
ICH9 High-speed USB 2.0 VHSOH may not meet the USB 2.0 specification.
— The maximum expected VHSOH is 460mV.
Implication:
None known.
Workaround: None.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
4.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family THRM Polarity on SMBus
Problem:
When THRM#_POL (PMBASE+42h:bit0) is set to high, the THRM# pin state as reported
to the SMBus TCO unit is logically inverted.
Implication:
If the THRM#_POL bit is set to high, an external SMBus master reading the BTI
Temperature Event status will not receive the correct state of the THRM# pin. The value
will be logically inverted. If THRM#_POL is set to low, value is correct.
Workaround: None.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
5.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family SPI_CS1# State
Problem:
After resuming from S3-S5, the ICH9 SPI_CS1# signal may initially drive a low voltage
on the pin.
Implication:
If only one SPI device is populated on the system, there is no impact.
If two SPI devices are populated, system may hang when resuming from S3-S5.
14
Specification Update
Errata
- When the ICH9 performs its initial read to the SPI device on SPI_CS0#,
SPI_CS1# could also be asserted. BIOS may not receive correct boot data.
Workaround: Available.
1) For ME-enabled systems:
- Desktop: use ME firmware version 3.0.2.xxxx or later, or populate one SPI device.
2) For non-ME systems: populate one SPI device.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
6.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family Level-Triggered Legacy
IRQs
Problem:
When the ICH9 legacy interrupts [15:0] are configured as level triggered interrupts,
the ICH9 may invert the default interrupt level from high-active to low-active.
Implication:
Devices or Virtualization SW stacks which use legacy interrupts [15:0] as low-active
level-triggered on the system may see performance degradation due to excessive IRQ
requests.
Note: Intel has not identified any impacted devices or production virtualization system
software stacks (VMMs/OS).
Workaround: Available.
• For impacted devices: BIOS or Device Driver ensures the ICH9 legacy interrupts
[15:0] are configured as edge triggered.
• For impacted Virtualization SW stacks:
— Option 1: Virtualization SW to configure ICH9 legacy interrupt [15:0] as edge
triggered
— Option 2: Virtualization SW should mask the low active level triggered interrupt
allocated to the virtual interrupt by executing the following steps:
. Check if platform is ICH9-based
. If ICH9, check the interrupt polarity specified in the corresponding RTE entry
of IOAPIC. If the polarity is active low, then
a) Mask this line in the physical IOAPIC, and
b) Virtualize the IOAPIC and the corresponding RTE entry mask field to the
guest OS.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes
7.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family High Speed (HS) USB2.0
D+ and D- Maximum Driven Signal Level
Problem:
During Start-of-Packet (SOP)/End-of-Packet (EOP), the ICH9 may drive D+ and D- lines
to a level greater than USB 2.0 spec +/-200mV max.
Implication:
May cause High Speed (HS) USB 2.0 devices to be unrecognized by OS or may not be
readable/writable if the following two conditions are met:
• The receiver is pseudo differential design
• The receiver is not able to ignore SE1 (single-ended) state
Note: Intel has only observed this issue with a motherboard down HS USB 2.0 device using
pseudo differential design. This issue will not affect HS USB 2.0 devices with
complementary differential design or Low Speed (LS) and Full Speed (FS) devices
Workaround: None.

PET Alerts on SMBus
Problem:
When using the ICH9 SMBus for Platform Event Trap (PET) alerts on a system with the
Intel® Management Engine (ME) enabled, the SMBus packet headers may be corrupted
if all of the following conditions are met:
• SMBus slave is the target of an external PET generating master on SMBus/SMLink
• The ME is in the middle of M0-M1 transitions
• SMBus slave receives back-to-back PET alerts of which some PET alerts are
incomplete (i.e. the packet is truncated to less than 6 bytes)
Note: This issue has only been observed under a synthetic test environment.
Implication:
ME firmware may stop functioning, which could cause a system hang.
Workaround: None
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.

SMBus Host Controller May Hang
Problem:
During heavy SMBus traffic utilization, the ICH9 SMBus host controller may attempt to
start a transaction while the bus is busy.
Note: This issue has only been observed under a synthetic test environment.
Implication:
May cause the SMBus host controller to hang.
• After boot:
— SMBus host controller transaction may not complete.
— External master transaction in progress targeting ICH9 SMBus slave may get
NACK or timeout.
— There is no impact to any other transaction that was in progress by an external
master.
• This issue has not been observed during boot as SMBus utilization tends to be light.
Workaround: BIOS workaroud available.
Contact your Intel field representative for details.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.

SATA Gen1 Initialization/LPM Erratum
Problem:
During SATA Initialization routines or while resuming from a Link Power Managed (LPM)
state, the ICH9 SATA link to Gen1 (1.5 Gb/s) devices may fail to be established.
Implication:
One or more of the following symptoms may occur:
• During Boot or Resume from S4/S5: SATA Gen1 devices may not be detected,
resulting in “Operating System Not Found” error.
• During Resume from S3: System may hang when attempting to initialize SATA
Gen1 devices.
• During S0: If LPM is enabled and ALL SATA Gen1 devices within the system support
LPM, slow SATA Gen1 performance may occur.
Workaround: BIOS workaround available.

ICH9M LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL Functionality
Problem:
LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL output is driven low by the ICH9M A3 during a host reset with or
without power cycle for up to 3 RTC clock cycles due to the pin momentarily being
configured as an output GPIO.
• LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL functionality requires a soft strap setting in the SPI descriptor
and use of the integrated LAN controller in ICH9M with the Intel® 82567 PHY.
Implication:
Functional failures such as system hangs or link loss with dropped packets have been
observed when LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL is tied to the LAN_DISABLE_N pin on the Intel®
82567.
Note: There are no functional implications if the pin is configured as GPIO12.
Workaround: Available
ME-Enabled Platforms: An ME FW workaround will be provided with Mobile ME FW
Production Candidate release.
• Both the ME Disable bits in the SPI flash descriptor (ICHSTRP0 bit 0 & MCHSTRP0
bit 0) must be set to 0 to enable the ME FW workaround.
• MCHSTRP0 bit 7 in the SPI flash descriptor can be set to disable all other ME FW
based features, while keeping the ME FW workaround enabled.
Non ME-Enabled Platforms: Remove LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL Support on the Platform
• Isolate the LAN_PHY_PWR_CTRL signal from the LAN_DISABLE_N pin.
• LAN_DISABLE_N has a weak integrated pull-up resistor and the Intel 82567 PHY
will always remain enabled with this implementation.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.

Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family SATA Low Power Device
Detection
Problem:
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9)Family SATA Low Power Device Detection (SLPD)
may not recognize, or may falsely detect, a SATA hot-plug event during a Partial or
Slumber Link Power Management (LPM) state.
Implication:
This issue affects ICH9, ICH9R, ICH9DH, ICH9DO, ICH9M, ICH9M-E and ICH9M-SFF
On systems which enable LPM, when a SATA device attached to the ICH9 is configured
as External or Hot Plug capable, one of the following symptoms may occur:
• Symptom #1: A Hot-Plug or External SATA device removal which is not detected
results in the OS and Intel® Matrix Storage Manager console falsely reporting the
device present, or incorrectly identifying an eSATA device.
• Symptom #2: A false hot-plug removal detection may occur resulting in OS boot
hang or ODD media playback hang.
Workaround: A driver workaround is available.

Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family SATA SYNC Escape
Problem:
When a SYNC Escape by a SATA device occurs on a D2H FIS, the ICH9 does not set the
PxIS.IFS bit to ‘1.’ This deviates from section 6.1.9 of the Rev 1.3 Serial ATA Advanced
Host Controller Interface (AHCI)
Implication:
There is no known observable impact. Instead of detecting the IFS bit, software will
detect a timeout error caused by the SYNC escape and then respond
Workaround: None
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.
15.
Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) Family HPET Write Timing
Problem:
A read transaction that immediately follows a write transaction to the HPET space may
return an incorrect value.
Implication:
Implication is dependent on the usage model as noted below:
For the HPET TIMn_COMP Timer 0 Comparator Value Register and HPET MAIN_CNT—
Main Counter Value Register the issue could result in the software receiving stale data.
This may result in undetermined system behavior.
Note: Timers [1:7] are not affected by this issue
For TIMERn_VAL_SET_CNF bit 6 in the TIMn_CONF—Timer n Configuration there is no
known usage model for reading this bit and there are no known functional implications.
A write to the High Precision Timer Configuration (HPTC) register followed by a read to
HPET register space may return all 0xFFFF_FFFFh.
Workaround: A workaround is available.
Status:
No Fix. For steppings affected, see the Summary Table of Changes.

Some GPIOs exist in the VccSus3_3 power plane. Care must be taken to make sure GPIO
signals are not driven high into powered-down planes. Also, external devices should not be
driving powered down GPIOs high. Some ICH9 GPIOs may be connected to pins on devices
that exist in the core well. If these GPIOs are outputs, there is a danger that a loss of core
power (PWROK low) or a Power Button Override event will result in the Intel ICH9 driving a
pin to a logic 1 to another device that is powered down.

The AFTER_G3 bit provides the ability to program whether or not the system should
boot once power returns after a power loss event. If the policy is to not boot, the
system remains in an S5 state (unless previously in S4). The following wake events can
wake the system following a power loss by either RSMRST# going low and enabling by
default, the enable bits reside in the RTC well or the wake event is always enabled.
1. PWRBTN#: PWRBTN# is always enabled as a wake event. When RSMRST# is low
(G3 state), the PWRBTN_STS bit is reset. When the ICH10 exits G3 after power
returns (RSMRST# goes high), the PWRBTN# signal is already high (because VCCstandby goes high before RSMRST# goes high) and the PWRBTN_STS bit is 0.
2. RI#: RI# does not have an internal pull-up. Therefore, if this signal is enabled as a
wake event, it is important to keep this signal powered during the power loss
event. If this signal goes low (active), when power returns the RI_STS bit is set and
the system interprets that as a wake event.
3. RTC Alarm: The RTC_EN bit is in the RTC well and is preserved after a power loss.
Like PWRBTN_STS the RTC_STS bit is cleared when RSMRST# goes low.
4. PCI Express Wake# Signal: The PCIEXPWAK_DIS bit is cleared by RSMRST# going
low enabling PCI Express Ports to wake the platform after a power loss. The
PCIEXPWAK_STS bit is also cleared when RSMRST# goes low.
5. PME_B0: PME_B0_EN is in the RTC Well and is preserved after a power loss. The
PME_B0_STS bit is also cleared when RSMRST# goes low.
6. PME: PME_EN: is in the RTC Well and is preserved after a power loss. The PME_STS
bit is also cleared when RSMRST# goes low.
7. Host SMBUS: SMBUSALERT# or Slave Wake message is always enabled as Wake
Event
8. ME Non-Maskable Wake: Always enabled as Wake Event.
The ICH9 monitors both PWROK and RSMRST# to detect for power failures. If PWROK
goes low, the PWROK_FLR bit is set. If RSMRST# goes low, PWR_FLR is set.

ratings, neither functionality nor long-term reliability can be expected. If a device is
returned to conditions within functional operation limits after having been subjected to
conditions outside these limits (but within the absolute maximum and minimum
ratings) the device may be functional, but with its lifetime degraded depending on
exposure to conditions exceeding the functional operation condition limits.
At conditions exceeding absolute maximum and minimum ratings, neither functionality
nor long-term reliability can be expected. Moreover, if a device is subjected to these
conditions for any length of time, it will either not function or its reliability will be

condition limits.
Although the ICH9 contains protective circuitry to resist damage from Electro Static Discharge (ESD), precautions should always be taken to avoid high static
coltages or electric fields.

Correct OUTSTRMPAY Register information
Section 18.2.11 of the EDS and Datasheet is updated as follows:
OUTSTRMPAY—Output Stream Payload Capability
(Intel® High Definition Audio Controller—D27:F0)
Memory Address:
Default Value:
Bit
15:8
15:14
7:0
13:0
HDBAR + 18h Attribute:
0030h
Size:
RO
16 bits
Description
Reserved
Output FIFO Padding Type (OPADTYPE) — RO. This field indicates how the
controller pads the samples in the controller's buffer (FIFO). Controllers may not pad
at all or may pad to byte or memory container sizes.
0h = Controller pads all samples to bytes
1h = Reserved
2h = Controller pads to memory container size
3h = Controller does not pad and uses samples directly
Output Stream Payload Capability (OUTSTRMPAY) — RO. This field indicates
maximum number of words per frame for any single output stream. This
measurement is in 16 bit word quantities per 48 kHz frame. The maximum supported
is 48 Words (96B); therefore, a value of 30h is reported in this register. The value
does not specify the number of words actually transmitted in the frame, but is the
size of the data in the controller buffer (FIFO) after the samples are padded as
specified by OPADTYPE. Thus, to compute the supported streams, each sample is
padded according to OPADTYPE and then multiplied by the number of channels and
samples per frame. If this computed value is larger than OUTSTRMPAY, then that
stream is not supported. The value specified is not affected by striping.
Software must ensure that a format that would cause more Words per frame than
indicated is not programmed into the Output Stream Descriptor Register.
00h = 0 words
01h = 1 word payload
…
FFh = 255h word payload
The value may be larger than the OUTPAY register value in some cases.

Correct INSTRMPAY Register information
Section 18.2.12 of the EDS and Datasheet is updated as follows:
INSTRMPAY—Input Stream Payload Capability

Input FIFO Padding Type (IPADTYPE) — RO. This field indicates how the
controller pads the samples in the controller's buffer (FIFO). Controllers may not pad
at all or may pad to byte or memory container sizes.
0h = Controller pads all samples to bytes
1h = Reserved
2h = Controller pads to memory container size
3h = Controller does not pad and uses samples directly

Input Stream Payload Capability (INSTRMPAY) — RO. This field indicates the
maximum number of Words per frame for any single input stream. This measurement is in 16-bit
Word quantities per 48-kHz frame. The maximum supported is 24 Words (48B); therefore, a
value of 18h is reported in this register.
The value does not specify the number of words actually transmitted in the frame,
but is the size of the data as it will be placed into the controller's buffer (FIFO). Thus,
samples will be padded according to IPADTYPE before being stored into controller
buffer. To compute the supported streams, each sample is padded according to
IPADTYPE and then multiplied by the number of channels and samples per frame. If
this computed value is larger than INSTRMPAY, then that stream is not supported. As
the inbound stream tag is not stored with the samples it is not included in the word
count.
The value may be larger than INPAY register value in some cases, although values
less than INPAY may also be invalid due to overhead.
Software must ensure that a format that would cause more Words per frame than indicated is not
programmed into the Input Stream Descriptor Register.
