The SYSMON provides two different external command interfaces. Although I2C and PMBus modes leverage similar I2C transport structures, PMBus mode leverages the standard PMBus command interface. The SYSMON I2C and PMBus address and MIO/EMIO pin locations are configurable through the Control, Interface, and Processing IP and allows access to the SYSMON.
Important: I2C/PMBUS restrictions for designs that use 2.5V or 3.3V on banks 500 and 501 exist for all package and speed grade combinations of VC1902, VC1802, VM1802, VM1302, VM1402. See Versal AI Core Series Production Errata (EN313) and Versal Prime Series Production Errata (EN314) for more details.
Several Slave Addresses are reserved by both I2C and SMBUS standards and should not be configured for I2C or PMBUS control interface. These addresses are defined in the following table. The SYSMON I2C/PMBus interfaces are not available before the SYSMON is configured. The SYSMON address can only be configured in the Control, Interface, and Processing IP.
Important: Neither I2C nor PMBus interfaces are active before the SYSMON is configured to enable the interface.
