3.5. Control on-board power regulator through Power Monitor GUI

The Power Monitor GUI reports most power rails voltage, current, and power information on the board. You can fine-tune some regulators’ output voltage by Power Monitor GUI. It also collects temperature from FPGA SDM, FPGA core, E-Tile, P-tile, power modules and diode assembled on PCB.

The Power Monitor GUI communicates with system Intel® MAX® 10 through either USB port CN1 or J19. System Intel® MAX® 10 monitors and controls power regulator, temperature/voltage/current sensing chips through a 2-wire serial bus.

The Power Monitor GUI applications (PowerMonitor.exe) runs as a stand-alone application and resides in the <package dir>\examples\board_test_system directory.

Attention: You cannot run the stand-alone power application when BTS or Clock Controller GUI is running at the same time.

Speed Adjustment: Adjust the update rate of current curve

Select Data Source: Switch between different monitor targets

Vout Adjustment (mV): Fine tune each smart regulator module output within +/-7% range.


Board: PCB surface temperature near U31

SDM/E-tile/P-tile/Core: FPGA die internal temperature sense diode (TSD)

QSFP: Diode assembled on PCB and close to QSFP/QSFPDD modules

VID_1/VCCH/3.3V/VCCPT/VCCIO: regulator U54/U57/U53/U58/U59 internal TSD. No on-board current measurement circuit for 3.3V_PRE, 5V, VCC_BIAS, 1.8V, 2.5V and 1.2V
