WEBENCH® Tools/UCD9222: ucd9222 configure siftware

Part Number: UCD9222

Tool/software: WEBENCH® Design Tools

The UCD9222 chip, previously used FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER 2017 version, the configuration panel has CLA configuration panel and all PMBus command panel, but in the 2018 version, these two panels are gone (2018 version features are introduced with CLA configuration function). Is it wrong with me or why? UCD9222 can only use the 2017 version? but the 2017 version of the official website can not be found, only the latest version of 2018, do you know the reason? Thank you!

  • Hi Bing,
    The 2018 versions of the GUI are backwards compatible with the UCD92xxx series of controllers.

    The first thing one sees when one loads a recent version of Fusion GUI (with UCD9224 attached in the example below) is the system view. System view shows all the devices connected to PMBUS. To configure a particular device, one clicks the link highlighted in yellow in the image below. That should take you to an interface almost identical to the 2017 configuration interface.

    thanks for your anwser !

    As shown in the figure below, the 2017 version (version7.0.21) has two configuration panels "CLA Coefficient Banks" and "Advanced Config", while the 2018 version (version 7.1.1) does not have these two panels. Why is this difference?

    version7.0.21

    version 7.1.1

    I would like to ask:

    1) The UCD9222 chip uses that version of the software?

    2) Can you provide the download address of the UCD9222 version software official website? The official website is only version 2018 (version 7.1.1)。

    Hi Bing,
    I could not see either of your images. The latest Fusion software should work with your device.
    I am able to see the "CLA Coefficient Banks" and "Advanced Config" tabs  when I am in Offline mode with the latest GUI (Below). The link to our latest GUI can be found below:

    sorry for that!

    version7.0.21

    version 7.1.1

    Ucd9222 should use this software "FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER", but your link is as shown below.

    I would like to ask:

    1) Which of the following software are you using? Which version is it?

    2) Can you provide the download address of the UCD9222 software official website?

  • In reply to bing li:

    That's strange. The link I posted goes to the FUSION_MFR_GUI on my system (Which is what you need. We are now on version 7.1.9).
    Try typing "www.ti.com/.../fusion_mfr_gui"" into your internet browser.

    I can see the tabs you are looking for in offline mode but not online mode.
    Keep in mind that UCD9222 is a few years old, and our GUI supports dozens of devices. I will double check to see if we've made any updates or bug fixes in 2018 that are relevant to your application. You might be able to still use the 2017 GUI safely for this part.

    I downloaded the FUSION_MFR_GUI software and opened the software as shown below.This is not the software I want。I need FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER。

    I can't download the  FUSION_DIGITAL_POWER_DESIGNER 2017 version on the official website(The previous installation package was accidentally deleted).Please give me a download link for the 2017 version, thank you.

  • In reply to bing li:

    Hello again,
    Try this one out: Fusion Digital Power Designer 7.1.14
    And look for this program:



    The package from the website includes several other smaller programs with very similar names. I'm sorry for the confusion.
