The USB to SMBus™ interface board allows communication between a Digital-DC™ evaluation board and a PC. This interface board has been designed to bridge PMBus™ commands from a PC application program to the SMBus. The PMBus command set is used to configure a Digital-DC device as well as monitor the power supply. PMBus commands are accessed using interface software from a PC running Microsoft Windows.
- SMBus control via USB
- SMBus 2.0 and I2C 2.1 compatible
- PMBus compliant
- Self powered from USB
- Pre-installed firmware
- Provides SMBus reference rail
This board has been designed to operate for the following conditions:
- Interface to Digital-DC EVBs
- fSMBus = 100kHz
- Temperature range: 0 °C to +70 °C
