AMD Versal™ adaptive SoC has a feature rich 64-bit dual core Arm® Cortex®-A72 and dual core Arm Cortex®-R5F based processing system (PS).


PMC clock frequency is fixed and is dependent on device speed grade. You can configure the load within the range of 0-100%. The Platform Management Controller (PMC) in AMD Versal™ devices is responsible for handling the primary pre-boot tasks and management of the hardware for reliable power-up and power-down of the resources at the device level. PMC handles device management control functions such as device reset sequencing, initialization, boot, configuration, security, power management, Dynamic Function eXchange (DFX), health-monitoring, and error management

Power Domains

The processing system is divided into Low Power Domain (LPD) and Full Power Domain (FPD). You can power up/down the FPD based on the design power requirements. You can also configure the PMC from PS page.

PS page has multiple tables for each PS subdomains. You can click each page to migrate and configure each submodule.
