BST Development Software

The Boundary-Scan Test (BST) Development Software is one of the several configurations of the ScanWorks boundary-scan (JTAG) test and on-board programming environment. Test engineers can quickly develop interconnect tests and device-programming actions for use on first prototype board to accelerate the board bring-up process. Then tests can be exported for use in manufacturing and repair facilities.
  • Extensive, constantly expanding device model library - allows automated test development
  • Discrete component models - profiling of even non-boundary-scan devices increases test development automation and test coverage.
  • Built-in power safety features - prevent board damage on trial testing.
  • Standard XML reporting format - easy integration into other systems.

BST Diagnostic & Repair Software

The ScanWorks BST Diagnostic & Repair Software has been tailored for applications where the fast isolation of faults and the identification of their causes are of paramount importance. Failed printed circuit boards coming off a manufacturing line or faulty product returned by a customer could be routed to the manufacturer's repair facility. An efficient method for testing circuit boards gives the manufacturer the ability to correct the problem faster and ensure the quality of the assembly. As a result, faulty product can be transformed from a liability into a revenue opportunity much sooner. ScanWorks BST Diagnostic & Repair Software effectively performs circuit board testing and flash memory diagnostics that can save you both time and money in the long run.

  • Minimize JTAG test development time by re-using vectors that were created to test prototypes during design or to test boards on a manufacturing line
  • Scan individual vectors, run complete actions or run a sequence of actions, all from a simple graphical user interface
  • Isolate faults fast with diagnostics that can identify failures down to the pin level or net level
  • Diagnose using a debug station that is remote from the manufacturing station that originally failed the test
  • View a graphical representation of your PCBA to locate the position of a failing net or device pin

BST Manufacturing Software

With the ScanWorks BST Manufacturing Software, companies can ensure a higher level of quality for their products because boundary scan gives them test coverage where physical access is not an option. And the return on investment from ScanWorks is very rapid because boundary-scan tests and programming algorithms developed during research and development can be re-used in manufacturing with no alterations.

The ScanWorks BST Manufacturing Software provides a cost-effective means of applying JTAG vectors during high-volume manufacturing. In addition, ScanWorks increases the value of the other testing equipment by sharing the burden of test between those testers and ScanWorks licenses. Compatible with most ICT, MDA, Flying Probe, and Functional Testers, ScanWorks BST Manufacturing Software increases overall test coverage while reducing test costs.
Top
  • Increase product quality through higher test coverage brought about by using JTAG (boundary scan) to perform structural test on PCBAs with few test points
  • Quickly isolate and diagnose failures
  • Re-use JTAG test and programming vectors developed during a product's design stage
  • Easily train new operators on the simple graphical user interface
  • Integrate ScanWorks with familiar test executives like LabVIEW®, TestStand, LabWindows/CVI®, and others
  • Increase throughput on a manufacturing line by offloading boundary scan test and programming from ICT to ScanWorks
  • Reduce ICT fixture costs and improve asset utilization by moving tests from the ICT system to the ScanWorks station
  • Increase speed of programming on-board devices through ScanWorks' high programming clock speeds and parallel multi-board programming capabilities

Dispatcher - Parallel Test and Programming

Dispatcher for ScanWorks Boundary increases production throughput by cost-effectively applying JTAG vectors during high-volume or high-mix manufacturing.

Dispatcher can test, program or diagnose multiple identical or completely different circuit boards simultaneously. Because it has a .NET-based application programming interface (API), Dispatcher can be readily and easily integrated into your test executive. You’ll be able to connect to local or remote units-under-test (UUT) over an ethernet network or the internet. From your PC’s test executive, you’ll can apply boundary-scan (JTAG) tests or configure programmable devices in-system after they’ve been soldered to a board. Imagine the power of remotely running, evaluating and diagnosing any number of boards based on different designs simultaneously from one test executive.

Dispatcher’s licensing model scales efficiently, ensuring a fast return-on-investment. Top
  • Accelerate throughput on your manufacturing line
  • Extremely flexible in high-mix environments
  • Very powerful in high-volume environments
  • Quickly isolate and diagnose failures on multiple UUTs
  • Re-use JTAG test and programming vectors developed during a circuit board’s design stage
  • Integrates easily with familiar test executives like LabVIEW®, TestStand, LabWindows/CVI® and others
  • Reduce the cost of off-line programming by integrating in-system programming into your assembly line
