Corelis ScanExpress JET with AMD Embedded Processors Support

Corelis ScanExpress JET now supports AMD embedded processors. ScanExpress JET is a tool for automated at-speed, non-intrusive functional testing. The JTAG Embedded Test (JET) method extends boundary-scan structural test coverage to virtually every signal that is accessible by the on-board CPU(s). Supported AMD processor families include Turion II Neo, Athlon II Neo, Opteron 4100, and Opteron Quad-Core (socket Fr5).

With the ScanExpress JET automatic circuit board testing tool, JTAG supported CPUs provide the centerpiece for printed circuit board testability, enabling an extension of test coverage typically not available through other methods.

ScanExpress JET Highlights

  • Standardized tests for SDRAM memory, SPI Flash, I2C, and UART
  • HyperTransport link validation
  • Peripheral detection on PCI and PCIe buses
  • Fully automatic test development for all supported peripherals
  • No boot code requirement for test execution
  • Extends structural test coverage by augmenting functional tests when the UUT includes a CPU with a JTAG debug/emulation port
  • Multiple CPUs of the same or various types are supported
  • High-speed in-system processor assisted Flash programming saves time in development and production phases
  • Automatically generates functional diagnostics tests saving months of coding time and associated overhead costs
  • Fully integrated “C”-style script language with a single-step capability assists in writing custom tests
  • Pre-compiled user embedded test code is also accepted so that users can re-use existing diagnostics code
  • Components are tested functionally at-speed using test routines downloaded via JTAG into CPU cache memory or RAM
  • Same test station and GUI for structural testing, functional testing, and in-system programming
  • Reduces or eliminates the use of In-Circuit Testers (ICTs) and Flying probes saving time and cost associated with test fixtures
  • Automatically constructs test plans that can be executed directly via ScanExpress Runner simplifying test plans generation and reducing mistakes
  • Great tool for testing, diagnosing, and troubleshooting ‘bone pile’ of functionally inoperable UUTs that pass boundary-scan tests but fail functionally
