The Board Evaluation and Management (BEAM) tool is a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) application that connects to the web server running on the System Controller. It allows you to monitor and modify different parameters such as clocks, voltages, and power on the evaluation board and to run the Board Interface Test (BIT) to ensure that the board functions properly.

The BEAM tool home page consists of various navigation options and links and provides an easy and intuitive experience with Xilinx® Versal® evaluation kits. The goal is to help you get started faster and have all the available resources in one place for easy access. Depending on the persona type (hardware, software, or embedded developer), you can choose to start with either testing the board, using the power advantage demo, downloading Versal reference designs or learning more about the latest Xilinx tools and libraries.

The VCK190 evaluation board and its major components are shown in the following figure.
