ASSET ScanWorks Embedded Diagnostics Solution

ASSET InterTech announced the ScanWorks embedded diagnostics solution, which is the first in-system JTAG-based debugger for Intel x86 platforms. The debugger implements hardware-based run control in system firmware. Once the debugger has been installed, systems can be debugged remotely from anywhere and at anytime with no external JTAG emulator hardware. The ScanWorks embedded diagnostics solution is available now. Pricing is customized based upon platform and BMC configurations.

ScanWorks Embedded Diagnostics Solution Overview

  • Based on ASSET’s ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments
  • Debugger implements hardware-based run control in system firmware
  • Systems can be debugged remotely from anywhere and at anytime with no external JTAG emulator hardware
  • Debugger firmware operates out of an x86-based circuit board’s service processor
  • Can access the Intel x86 processor through its debug port to diagnose faults and failures in the system
  • Deployed as intellectual property (IP) within working systems
  • Can perform debugging routines in the lab or in the field, and on an unlimited number of systems where it has been embedded
  • Typical debugger functions include reading and writing to all x86 registers, to memory, and to I/O interfaces; setting and retrieving breakpoints; and single-stepping through code
