Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZCU102 Evaluation Kit - Reprogramming the Maxim Integrated Power Controllers

Description

The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZCU102 Evaluation Kit hosts a Maxim PMBus based power system, using the MAX15301 and MAX15303 PMBus voltage regulators, and the MAX20751E.

The MAX20751E device can be reprogrammed a limited number of times (4).

If power issues are encountered on the ZCU102, reprogramming these devices might become necessary, using the Maxim InTune Power Tool cable.

Solution

The MAX15301 and MAX15303 PMBus devices on the ZCU102 Evaluation Kit can be reprogrammed.

The MAX20751E devices on the ZCU102 can be reprogrammed a limited number of times (4 times).

To do so, the PowerTool MAXPOWERTOOL002# USB-to-PMBUS interface dongle is required, together with the PowerTool software.

The PowerTool software can be downloaded here:

Please find the script needed to reprogram the ZCU102 attached, together with important instructions to follow.

Using these files you will target the MAX15301 and MAX15303 devices. This gives you the option to skip programming the 2 MAX20751 devices which only support up to 4 re-programming cycles.

The MAX20751 devices do not need to be updated.
