The SZG-TST-STD is designed to assist carrier developers perform continuity and power supply tests during development and production testing. To accomplish this, the test peripheral connects a communication path from the FPGA to the Atmel MCU for power supply tests. The remaining pins on the connector are shorted together in the manner described below to allow for continuity testing.
The Atmel MCU on the test peripherals contains a modified version of the normal DNA firmware. The test firmware removes the power supply sequencing options present in the standard firmware.The test firmware also uses the AVR to measure each of the power supply rails, reporting their status back to the FPGA.
Each supply rail is measured with the internal AVR ADC and checked against a pair of threshold values corresponding to the SYZYGY specified tolerance of that power supply rail. If the supply rail is within its required tolerance the AVR sets a "good" status bit for that rail. The VIO rail is assumed to be at 1.8V by the AVR firmware and the DNA for the test peripheral. A 1.8V VIO is used to maximize compatibility with current FPGA I/O supply requirements.
Supply status is communicated back to the FPGA through SYZYGY pins 5, 7, 9, and 11. The AVR continuously reads AVR pin PA7 (SYZYGY Pin 11 (S6)), then outputs the power supply state on the PB[2:0] pins according to the table below.
|+5V Supply||+3.3V Supply||VIO Supply|
|PA7 = 1||Good||PB0 = 1||PB2 = 1||PB1 = 1|
|Bad||PB0 = 0||PB2 = 0||PB1 = 0|
|PA7 = 0||Good||PB0 = 0||PB2 = 0||PB1 = 0|
|Bad||PB0 = 1||PB2 = 1||PB1 = 1|
By toggling the PA7 pin with the FPGA it is possible to test continuity on the MCU pins while also checking the status of each power supply.
