Description

The UCD90120 Power Supply Sequencer and System Health Monitor monitors and sequences up to 12 independent voltage rails. The device integrates a 12-bit ADC with a 2.5V internal reference for monitoring up to 13 power supply voltage, current, or temperature inputs.

26 GPIO pins can be used for power supply enables, power-on reset signals, external interrupts, cascading multiple UCD90120 devices, or other system functions. 12 of these pins can be used as PWM outputs for power supply margining or general-purpose PWM functions including clock generation for switch-mode power supplies.

The TI Fusion Digital Power Designer 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.

The UCD90120 has an I2C/PMBus/SMBus communication interface for pre-production and in-system configuring and monitoring and a JTAG Port for production programming.

Description

This EVM serves as an interface adapter or a bridge between a host PC (IBM™ compatible) and one or multiple slave devices via a standard type-A to mini-B USB cable. The communication between the USB interface adapter and the host PC is via USB, while the communication between the USB interface (...)

Features
  • Supports master mode I²C, SMBus or PMBus as well as GPIO.
  • Supports USB1.1 full speed at 12 Mbit/s. The USB interface adapter is recognized by the host as a generic human interface device (HID), so no proprietary USB or HID driver is needed. Therefore, the USB interface adapter can be treated as a (...)
