Abstract

The disclosure is to leverage existing Baseboard Memory Control (BMC) and USB functions in a system to implement a USB-interface device that provides a portable Lightpath indicator for systems having the BMC and USB as a common building block design. This will effectively eliminate the need for implement the error indicator function on the main system board which is not only a cost saving, also yields more board space for other functions.
