The Fast TracKer (FTK) to Level-2 Interface Card (FLIC) of the ATLAS FTK trigger upgrade is the final component in the FTK chain of custom electronics to connect the system to the High-Level trigger (HLT). The FTK performs full event tracking using the ATLAS Silicon detectors for every Level-1(L1) accepted event at 100 kHz. The FLIC is a custom Advanced Telecommunications Architecture (ATCA) card that interfaces the upstream FTK system with the ATLAS trigger and data acquisition (TDAQ) system, and allows for event processing on commercial PC blades, making use of the 10 Gb Ethernet full mesh ATCA backplane.

IPMB address for the slots
To turn on and off boards, follow the procedure in this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AFG2NiOa7EOsIhMX3Na6mmfUw2Ab1HVlt_Txr5kHMYE/edit?usp=sharing
Talk to the IPMC.
eg. get the device ID of the board in slot 3:
clia sendcmd (IPMB address) (netfn) (command) clia sendcmd 86 6 1
get Device SDR Info:
clia sendcmd (IPMB address) (netfn) (command) clia sendcmd 86 4 20
