Boundary-scan I/O module handles up to 30 V
Test & Measurement World Staff - September 23, 2012Goepel electronic has expanded its ScanFlex boundary-scan hardware platform with a digital I/O module that provides independently programmable I/O channels and is able to process voltages of up to 30 V.
Additionally, the SFX5212 leverages the company’s VarioCore technology for dynamic configuration of module-specific FPGA-based functions.
With the SFX5212 I/O module, engineers can increase test coverage for non-boundary-scan circuits or peripheral signals with higher signal voltage by combining structural and functional test procedures on a single platform. The module furnishes 12 channels with driver capability of up to 150 mA, independently programmable as input, output, or tristate. The I/O voltage can be programmed onboard or externally supplied.
The SFX5212 is controlled independent of the TAP (test access port) via the ScanFlex internal parallel bus. If more channels are needed, several modules can be cascaded. In addition, the module can be combined with all ScanFlex controllers and TAP transceivers and is supported in the System Cascon JTAG/boundary-scan development environment.
