Novena contains an onboard serial EEPROM that it uses to describe unique features of a particular device, such as MAC address and serial number. It also includes timing information for the display, a list of installed features, and it contains a scratch storage area for kernel panics during reboot.

The novena-eeprom-gui will be based on the Novena EEPROM format 2, which is described in novena-eeprom.h and Novena/EEPROM. It is meant to allow users to inspect personally identifiable information stored on the board, as well allowing them to modify low-level aspects of the board.
