ASSET InterTech recently published a white paper titled: Non-Intrusive Board Bring-Up: Software Tools Ensure Fast Prototype Bring-Up. The technical paper explains how non-intrusive software tools can bring up prototype circuit boards faster than legacy hardware-oriented tools like oscilloscopes and logic analyzers. The white paper reviews best practices for board bring-up and describes the benefits of integrating non-intrusive tools based on embedded instruments into an organization’s board bring-up framework.
Non-Intrusive Board Bring-Up: Software Tools Ensure Fast Prototype Bring-Up
Many engineers are turning to software-based non-intrusive embedded instruments to perform tests, to gather validation data and to diagnose any hardware faults that may be present on prototype circuit boards. These tools can be employed before operating firmware or software have been loaded onto the board. Without fixtures or probes, non-intrusive validation, test and debug techniques can accelerate the board bring-up process, reduce the costs associated with board bring-up and help deliver new systems to the marketplace on time.
