Up to 12 voltages can be monitored using the analog input pins. The input voltage range is 0 V to 2.5 V for MON1-9. MON10-13 can measure down to 0.2 V. Any voltage between 0 V and 0.2 V on these pins is read as 0.2 V. External resistors can be used to attenuate voltages higher than 2.5 V.
The ADC operates continuously, requiring 3.89 μs to convert a single analog input. Each rail is sampled by the sequencing and monitoring algorithm every 400 μs. The maximum source impedance of any sampled voltage should be less than 4 kΩ. The source impedance limit is particularly important when a resistor-divider network is used to lower the voltage applied to the analog input pins.
MON1 - MON6 can be configured using digital hardware comparators, which can be used to achieve faster fault responses. Each hardware comparator has four thresholds (two UV (Fault and Warning) and two OV (Fault and Warning)). The hardware comparators respond to UV or OV conditions in about 80 μs (faster than 400 µs for the ADC inputs) and can be used to disable rails or assert GPOs. The only fault response available for the hardware comparators is to shut down immediately.
An internal 2.5-V reference is used by the ADC. The ADC reference has a tolerance of ±0.5% between 0°C and 125°C and a tolerance of ±1% between –40°C and 125°C. An external voltage divider is required for monitoring voltages higher than 2.5 V. The nominal rail voltage and the external scale factor can be entered into the Fusion GUI and are used to report the actual voltage being monitored instead of the ADC input voltage. The nominal voltage is used to set the range and precision of the reported voltage according to Table 2.

Although the monitor results can be reported with a resolution of about 15 μV, the real conversion resolution of 610 μV is fixed by the 2.5-V reference and the 12-bit ADC.
