Virtex UltraScale FPGA VCU1287 Characterization Kit - Reprogramming the Maxim Integrated Power Controllers


The Virtex UltraScale FPGA VCU1287 Characterization Kit uses the MAX20751 and MAX15301 PMBus devices as part of the power supply system.

The MAX20751 device can be reprogrammed a limited number of times (4).

If power issues are encountered on the VCU1287, reprogramming these devices might become necessary, using the Maxim PowerTool cable.


To reprogram the power controllers on the board, the PowerTool MAXPOWERTOOL002# USB-to-PMBus interface dongle is needed, together with Maxim PowerTool Software.

The PowerTool Software can be downloaded here:
