4.4. Monitor On-Board Power Regulator through Power Monitor GUI

The Power Monitor GUI reports most power rails’ voltage, current, and power information on the board. It also collects temperature from FPGA die, power modules, and diodes assembled on PCB.

The Power Monitor GUI communicates with system Intel® MAX® 10 through a 10-pin JTAG header J3 or USB port J10. System Intel® MAX® 10 monitors and controls power regulator, temperature/voltage/current sensing chips through a 2-wire I2C bus.

The instructions to run Power Monitor GUI are stated in the Run BTS GUI section. It can also be started with the BTS GUI icon “Power”.

Note: You cannot run the stand-alone Power Monitor GUI when the BTS or the Clock Controller GUI is running at the same time.

The following sections describe the details of the Power Monitor GUI.

Display Configure

  • Speed Adjustment: Adjusts the update rate of the current curve
  • Reset: Regenerates the graph

Data Record

When the box is checked, the telemetry data of the selected power rail can be recorded. The data will be saved into a .csv file in the board_test_system/log directory.


Reads the temperature data from FPGA die internal temperature sense diodes.

  • Beta Compensation: Corrects the temperature-measurement errors due to low-beta sensing transistors
