ASSET InterTech Inc. has a new test controller board it claims is thefirst boundary-scan controller capable of applying both JTAG andfunctional microprocessor emulation tests on the same circuit board.
Its new PCI-based ScanWorks PCI-200EJ controller supports
Alan Sguigna, vice president of sales and marketing for ASSET saidthe board was developed in collaboration with
The ScanWorks PCI-200EJ controller also streamlines the entire testapplication process by combining both types of tests on one platform.By sharing the same user interface and the same physical connector tothe unit under test (UUT), the ScanWorks PCI-200EJ controller speedsthe entire test process.
For example, a failure of a functional test can be quickly diagnosedby applying a boundary-scan test to pinpoint any structural faults.
Initially, the PCI-200EJ will support all of the ScanWorksboundary-scan operations and emulation testing on PowerPCmicroprocessors. Sguigna said support in the future is planned forIntel Pentium and XScale processors as well.
