E6xx

Hi,

I have a cPCI board with E6xx processor.  I need to write an appication to talk to the hardware watchdog, and also an application to controll a led connected via gpio.  My operating system is debian squeeze.

I have no idea where to start.  Are there sample programs available, or can someone put me in the right direction?

Kind regards,

Stijn.

Can you provide more information about your system? Did you purchase a vPro branded system that supports Active Management Technology? I'm assuming you are intersted in the Watchdog capabilities with AMT? You need a Core i5 or Core i7 processor for this. We have an SDK that can be downloaded here: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-software-development-kit-sdk/.

My System is a PC2-LIMBO CPU board from EKF (http://www.ekf.de/p/pc2/pc2.html). So no core i5 or core i7 processor, but an intel atom processor.

Ok - Active Management Technology is not supported on Atom-based processors. If you want to set up some kind of "watchdog" it would be outside of the vPro Technology and this would not be the right forum for you. (sorry!)

Well - I moved it to our Platform Monitoring forum but I don't know if that's the right one.
