Baseboard Management Controller (BMC): Service processor which runs whenever the system is energised. Handles power on, power off and reboot requests and optionally provides remote management functionality. Implements IPMI and performs necessary baseboard initialization prior to CPU power on. Monitors CPU temperatures and sets fan speeds appropriately.

The Talos II mainboard uses the open source OpenBMC stack for the software role.
