ASSET InterTech announced new tools to structurally verify, functionally test, analyze performance margins and debug boards based on the Intel microarchitecture codenamed Haswell. ScanWorks board bring-up will be available in the second quarter of this year. Pricing for a base level ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments starts at $12,000.
ASSET InterTech announced the Remote Instrumentation Controller 4000 (RIC-4000) for the ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments. The RIC-4000 can connect over an Ethernet network and apply boundary scan (JTAG) tests on as many as four circuit boards at once. The ASSET InterTech RIC-4000 will be available next month. Prices for the Remote Instrumentation Controller 4000 start at $8,495.
ASSET InterTech announced Component Action, which is a new model-based test methodology for the ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments. ScanWorks Component Action extends non-intrusive boundary-scan (JTAG) test coverage to devices that previously could not be tested or programmed with boundary scan. The Component Action models will be available in November as a capability of the ScanWorks platform. Pricing for ScanWorks starts at $5,995.
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.
ASSET announced the ScanWorks High-Speed IO (HSIO) Toolkit for PC Client, which is a web-based tool for validating and debugging circuit board designs targeting future 22nm based Intel Core processors for the desktop and mobile applications. ScanWorks HSIO Toolkit includes tools that provide detailed information on DDR3, PCI-Express Graphics (PEG), and Direct Media Interface (DMI) buses. The ScanWorks HSIO Toolkit for PC Client is available now. A 90-day license costs $1,995.
ASSET’s ScanWorks platform for embedded instrumentation now supports the PLX visionPAK packet generator/system analyzer toolset. visionPAK provides unique capabilities embedded in PLX PCIe devices helping engineers with board level testing and field debug. ASSET ScanWorks support will enable system manufacturers to use PLX on-board devices to test other components and interconnects of the system more rigorously with lower cost before they get shipped.
