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).

The Sage SmartProbe, from Sage Electronic Engineering, provides software engineers a hardware interface to evaluate the system under development at every stage in the design cycle. The tool enables graphic visualization of the entire embedded system operation, including code flow, register access, memory movement, multi-core execution, and peripheral access. SmartProbe can also help speed the qualification process for test and production teams. SmartProbe was designed by Sage Electronic Engineering for AMD Embedded Solutions.
