SLUSCA5B December 2015 – January 2017 UCD3138064A
The application firmware for the UCD3138064A is developed on Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio (CCS) integrated development environment (v3.3 recommended).
Device programming, real time debug and monitoring/configuration of key device parameters for certain power topologies are all available through Texas Instruments’ FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER Graphical User Interface (http://www.ti.com/tool/fusion_digital_power_designer). The FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER software application uses the PMBus protocol to communicate with the device over a serial bus using an interface adaptor known as the USB-TO-GPIO, available as an EVM from Texas Instruments (http://www.ti.com/tool/usb-to-gpio). PMBUS-based real-time debug capability is available through the ‘Memory Debugger’ tool within the Device GUI module of the FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER GUI, which represents a powerful alternative over traditional JTAG-based approaches’.
The software application can also be used to program the devices, with a version of the tool known as FUSION_MFR_GUI optimized for manufacturing environments (http://www.ti.com/tool/fusion_mfr_gui). The FUSION_MFR_GUI tool supports multiple devices on a board, and includes built-in logging and reporting capabilities.
In terms of reference documentation, the following programmer’s manuals are available offering detailed information regarding the application and usage of UCD3138064A digital controller:
