Description

The UCD90160A 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 UCD90160A 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 Fault Pin feature enables easily cascading multiple devices and coordinates among those devices to take synchronized fault responses.

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.

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 (...)
