Board Management

All power rails are sequenced and monitored by a TI Fusion IC. The TI Fusion controller monitors certain voltage readings, current readings, and Power OK signals to determine the state of the system. A PC can directly interact with the TI Fusion IC via the onboard PMBUS interface.
