CPU - the most powerful instrument

Put the most powerful instrument on your board – the CPU – to work performing structural and functional diagnostics, debug routines and tests all in one pass.
Embedded in that CPU on your circuit board are the instruments that are critical for overcoming today’s design challenges. Given the complexity of board designs and chips, you need access to this on-chip technology to diagnose, debug and test your designs. One of the tools that makes up the ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments is Processor-Controlled Test (PCT). It takes advantage of the CPU’s debug port for access to the circuit board so it can perform board debug, device initialization, at-speed functional test with structural diagnostics and much more. PCT is just one of several ScanWorks tools which address every stage in a product’s life cycle.

Processor-Controlled Test Software

ASSET provides software in a variety of packages to support the needs of the user.

Development software - The development software can be used in design engineering, for prototype debug, and in manufacturing engineering, for a single pass of structural and functional test.

Key strengths to provide a cost effective way of accelerating time to market:
  • Prototype bring-up
  • Fast functional test
  • Bone pile recovery
  • Fast flash programming

Diagnostic & Repair software - The diagnostic and repair software provides the ability to run tests developed with a development license and diagnose faults if found. This software is key in bone pile recovery and producing revenue from potential scrap.

Manufacturing software - The manufacturing software provides the ability to run tests developed with a development license and get a pass/fail result. This software is key for fast functional test where within a single pass you get structural and functional coverage.


CPU & FPGA Support

ScanWorks supports Intel®, ARM®, Freescale™,
& other CPUs; Altera® and Xilinx® FPGAs.
