The ZCU111 board includes an on-board system controller. A host PC resident system controller user interface (SCUI) is provided on the ZCU111 Evaluation Kit website. This GUI enables the query and control of select programmable features such as clocks, FMC functionality, and power system parameters. The ZCU111 web page also includes a tutorial on the SCUI (XTP517) [Ref 11] and board setup instructions (XTP518) [Ref 12] .

3. Connect the micro-USB to ZCU111 USB-UART connector (J83).
