Description

The UCD90160 is a 16-rail PMBus/I2C addressable power-supply sequencer and monitor. The device integrates a 12-bit ADC for monitoring up to 16 power-supply voltage inputs. Twenty-six GPIO pins can be used for power supply enables, power-on reset signals, external interrupts, cascading, or other system functions. Twelve of these pins offer PWM functionality. Using these pins, the UCD90160 offers support for margining, and general-purpose PWM functions.

Specific power states can be achieved using the Pin-Selected Rail States feature. This feature allows with the use of up to 3 GPIs to enable and disable any rail. This is useful for implementing system low-power modes and the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) specification that is used for hardware devices.

The TI Fusion Digital Power™ designer software is provided for device configuration. This PC-based graphical user interface (GUI) offers an intuitive interface for configuring, storing, and monitoring all system operating parameters.
