Methods for detecting the HP SIO and reading the thermal data on a dc7100¶
The thermal information on the dc7100 is contained in the SIO Hardware Monitor (HWM). The information is accessed through an index/data pair. The index/data pair is located at the HWM Base Address + 0 and the HWM Base Address + 1. The HWM Base address can be obtained from Logical Device 8, registers 0x60 (MSB) and 0x61 (LSB). Currently we are using 0x480 for the HWM Base Address and 0x480 and 0x481 for the index/data pair.
Reading temperature information. The temperature information is located in the following registers:
|Temp1||0x25||(Currently, this reflects the CPU temp on all systems).|
Programming Example The following is an example of how to read the HWM temperature registers:
MOV DX,480H MOV AX,25H OUT DX,AL MOV DX,481H IN AL,DX
AL contains the data in hex, the temperature in Celsius is the decimal equivalent.
Ex: If AL contains 0x2A, the temperature is 42 degrees C.
Reading tach information. The fan speed information is located in the following registers:
|Tach1||0x28||0x29||(Currently, this reflects the CPU fan speed on all systems).|
Reading the tach LSB locks the tach MSB. The LSB Must be read first.
How to convert the tach reading to RPM¶
The tach reading (TCount) is given by: (Tach MSB * 256) + (Tach LSB) The SIO counts the number of 90kHz (11.111us) pulses per revolution. RPM = 60/(TCount * 11.111us)
Reg 0x28 = 0x9B Reg 0x29 = 0x08
TCount = 0x89B = 2203
RPM = 60 / (2203 * 11.11111 E-6) = 2451 RPM
Obtaining the SIO version.
To program the configuration registers, the following sequence must be followed: 1. Enter Configuration Mode 2. Configure the Configuration Registers 3. Exit Configuration Mode.
Enter Configuration Mode¶
To place the chip into the Configuration State The config key (0x55) is written to the CONFIG PORT (0x2E).
In configuration mode, the INDEX PORT is located at the CONFIG PORT address and the DATA PORT is at INDEX PORT address + 1.
The desired configuration registers are accessed in two steps:
- Write the index of the Logical Device Number Configuration Register (i.e., 0x07) to the INDEX PORT and then write the number of the desired logical device to the DATA PORT.
- Write the address of the desired configuration register within the logical device to the INDEX PORT and then write or read the config- uration register through the DATA PORT.
- If accessing the Global Configuration Registers, step (a) is not required.
Exit Configuration Mode¶
To exit the Configuration State the write 0xAA to the CONFIG PORT (0x2E). The chip returns to the RUN State. (This is important).
The following is an example of how to read the SIO Device ID located at 0x20:
; ENTER CONFIGURATION MODE MOV DX,02EH MOV AX,055H OUT DX,AL ; GLOBAL CONFIGURATION REGISTER MOV DX,02EH MOV AL,20H OUT DX,AL ; READ THE DATA MOV DX,02FH IN AL,DX ; EXIT CONFIGURATION MODE MOV DX,02EH MOV AX,0AAH OUT DX,AL
The registers of interest for identifying the SIO on the dc7100 are Device ID (0x20) and Device Rev (0x21).
The Device ID will read 0x6F (0x81 for SCH5307-NS, and 0x85 for SCH5317) The Device Rev currently reads 0x01
Obtaining the HWM Base Address¶
The following is an example of how to read the HWM Base Address located in Logical Device 8:
; ENTER CONFIGURATION MODE MOV DX,02EH MOV AX,055H OUT DX,AL ; CONFIGURE REGISTER CRE0, ; LOGICAL DEVICE 8 MOV DX,02EH MOV AL,07H OUT DX,AL ;Point to LD# Config Reg MOV DX,02FH MOV AL, 08H OUT DX,AL;Point to Logical Device 8 ; MOV DX,02EH MOV AL,60H OUT DX,AL ; Point to HWM Base Addr MSB MOV DX,02FH IN AL,DX ; Get MSB of HWM Base Addr ; EXIT CONFIGURATION MODE MOV DX,02EH MOV AX,0AAH OUT DX,AL
