ScanWorks integrates with Teradyne PXIe ATE
Test & Measurement World Staff- September 10, 2012
Asset InterTech and Teradyne have extended the integration of the JTAG and boundary-scan test capabilities of Asset’s ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments with Teradyne’s PXI Express-based HSSub (High-Speed Subsystem). The integration of the nonintrusive, software-based ScanWorks tools with HSSub supports custom and standardized high-speed digital buses in new and legacy test systems deployed in the defense and aerospace market. As a result, users of large-scale ATE systems equipped with Teradyne’s PXI Express instruments will have immediate access to the cost-effective and robust boundary-scan and JTAG test and programming solutions of the ScanWorks platform.
ScanWorks was integrated with the HSSub through its Boundary Scan Runtime Library, a software facility that gives access to several of its instrument families through an application programming interface. The ScanWorks boundary-scan and JTAG tools are able to test a circuit board through the high-speed communications channels on a Teradyne instrument. These channels connect ScanWorks to the boundary-scan TAP (test access port) on the circuit board that is being tested.
