Virtex-5/-6 System Monitor - What does the System Monitor power down feature do?


The power down feature is mentioned in the System Monitor User Guide. What does this feature do?


The power down feature first does a shutdown (reverse of startup), then asserts GHIGH. For further information on the shutdown, see Virtex-5 FPGA Configuration User Guide, UG191.


When OT is deasserted, it will deassert GHIGH and startup sequence is reactivated.
