Unlike previous architectures, the System Monitor used on Versal® devices can display a larger number of on die sensors. Before using System Monitor on Versal devices, you must select the sensors to be measured in the Control, Interface, and Processing System (CIPS) IP under the PS-PMC settings.
Note: If no sensors are selected, or the CIPS is not configured, only device temperature is accessible.
Configuring System Monitor Sensors in Versal CIPS IP
- Ensure a CIPS is instantiated in the design. For more information on integrating the CIPS IP, see Control, Interface and Processing System LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG352). If a CIPS is already present in the design, open the Block Design containing the CIPS by clicking Open Block Design under IP integrator in the Flow Navigator. When the Block Design has opened, double click on the CIPS to bring up the IP customization GUI.
- Click Next and click on the blue box labeled PS PMC to enter the PS-PMC configuration wizard.
- In the left pane, click Sysmon.
- The SysMon Configuration appears and SysMon can now be configured. Basic temperature and/or voltage monitoring can be quickly configured by selecting a Common Configuration Template. To select a specific voltage rail for monitoring, click on the On Chip Supply Monitor tab and check the Enable radio button next to the rail to be monitored.
