This document defines and describes the common format and use of the FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) Information storage in platforms using the Intelligent Platform Management Interface.

The FRU Information is used to primarily to provide ‘inventory’ information about the boards that the FRU Information Device is located on. It is a goal that all major field replaceable ...units (FRUs) have an EEPROM or FRU Information Device from which, at a minimum, the part number or version number can be read through software. It is also a goal that the FRUs serial number be software readable.
