System Monitor/XADC Design Assistant - Getting Started with the hardware


NOTE: This Answer Record is part of the Xilinx System Monitor and XADC Solution Center (Xilinx Answer 39323). The Xilinx System Monitor and XADC Solution Center is available to address all questions related to System Monitor and XADC. Whether you are starting a new design with Virtex-6 FPGA or troubleshooting a problem, use the System Monitor and XADC Solution Center to guide you to the right information.


When getting started orplanning the board/hardware for the System Monitor/XADC, it is recommended that you read the Application Guideline section of theSystem Monitor/XADC User Guide. There is a section on PCB layouts and recommendations on how to route external inputs. It is critical for the performance of theSystem Monitor/XADC that a correct reference is used. When using an external reference IC, you need to select a reference IC with the correct tolerance (i.e., for Virtex-61.25V 0.2%).
