Soft access to hard data Advanced chips and circuit boards have moved beyond the reach of legacy automatic test equipment (ATE), oscilloscopes and big-box manufacturing testers. Instead of relying on probes for access, the ScanWorks platform is a software environment with soft access to instruments embedded in chips and boards. ScanWorks validates performance, tests structural integrity and debugs hardware and firmware all in one user friendly environment. And ScanWorks tests move along with the chips from design, into prototype board bring-up and on to volume manufacturing test. Cost-of-test is slashed by re-using tests over and over again. The multiple non-intrusive tools that make up ScanWorks let you validate, test and debug your chips and circuit boards from the inside out. Plus, ScanWorks brings you the adaptability and cost-effectiveness of a software environment.
