The latest evaluation kits include advanced regulator and digital power controllers that you can use to capture regulator output currents and voltages, then send this information to a monitoring computer over a USB interface. This is the simplest and most convenient way to monitor the power rails. Most Xilinx® development boards have integrated power controllers that can be accessed with a GUI software on a PC using a PMBus (I2C) to USB interface module.
