Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA VCU118 Evaluation Kit - Reprogramming the Maxim Integrated Power Controllers


The Virtex UltraScale+ FPGA VCU118 Evaluation Kit hosts a Maxim PMBus based power system, using the MAX15301 PMBus voltage regulators, and the MAX20751E.

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

If power issues are encountered on the VCU118, reprogramming these devices might become necessary, using the Maxim InTune PowerTool cable.


The MAX15301 devices on the VCU118 Evaluation kit can be reprogrammed an indefinite number of times.

The MAX20751E devices on the VCU118 can be programmed 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 VCU118 attached, together with important instructions to follow.

The instructions are in the attached document, VCU118_Power_Controllers_Reprogramming_Steps.pdf.
