Tiger Lake - Machine Check Exception

We are in the process of bringing up a new COMe module based on the Tiger Lake-UP3 processor. We are booting through MRC training and not much after that until we experience a shut down due to an Exception #12 - Machine Check error. This happens not much after most of the processor features have been enabled - include the Machine Check Enable (MCE) bit.

Using the Asset SourcePoint emulator, I am able to trap on the exception. But none of the MCE MSR's show any status.

Does anybody have experience debugging this type of exception? A broad set of causes can cause this and we are having trouble isolating the cause.

I am attaching a trace log that includes CSME and AET traffic.

Thank you for the support offer but we resolved this issue. Turned out to be a bad SPD table for our memory. Even though the MRC tuning stage passed, it still wasn't perfect.

Hello PDeme, 



I do appreciate the update. I am glad to know that you solved the issue, unfortunately, the RAM was defective. I will proceed to close this thread, however, you can open a new one in case you need further assistance or if you face any issues with our products.
