Target Board Power Selection

To power the target from Power Monitor, complete the following steps.

1

Select Power Category

In the Project Properties window, click the “Real ICE” category and select the “Power” option category.

2

Set Up Target Power

Under the Power option category:

  • Check “Power target circuit from REAL ICE”.
  • Specify the target voltage under “Voltage Level”. The levels available are based on the project device operating range. The voltage is selectable in 125 mV increments.
  • Click Apply.

Debug Run Information

During a Debug Run, this configuration (Power) provides power to the target using the standard modular connection. There is a sense resistor in the path that feeds the Vdd connection to the modular (RJ-11) plug and this is where voltage and current are measured. This configuration provides the widest range of current (from mA to A) to be monitored.

Another configuration is discussed under Device Power (CHB) Setup.
