Full compatibility with Heceta II (Intel's cost-reduced ASIC specification for hardware monitors) is offered by the DS1780 CPU peripheral monitor IC. The device complies with DMI 2.0 and Intel's Wired for Management initiative. Hardware monitors are used to ensure reliable system operation and protect valuable data. The DS1780 is designed to do just that in PCs, servers, workstations and other CPU-based systems.The chip monitors ambient temperatures with an accuracy of ±2°C and also monitors the speed of two fans. It keeps a watchful eye on up to six different power supply voltages and can team up with an optical or mechanical sensor to detect and record chassis intrusions.
