Your production throughput matters so device programming must be fast to deliver the beat rate necessary to achieve production line goals. JTAG has been a great solution for in-system programming of small program images, but in today’s world of multiple core SoCs, the embedded programs just keep getting bigger and bigger and JTAG alone just can’t keep up. You don’t want to go back to off-board programming with its inherent device management challenges. ScanWorks Fast Flash programming is the answer by achieving in-system programming at device speeds. Thus, no matter how big the embedded program gets, you will also be programming at maximum velocity.

Doing off-board programming today? Device inventory management getting harder?
Until now if you had big images to program in flash during production, you needed to use the big off-board programmers or outsource that to a programming house. Both require a complex process to be implemented to manage device types, program versions, continuous updates to add new features, fix bugs or plug a security hole and much more. Today, you have an opportunity to move to in- system programming dramatically reducing the cost of the production programming process without sacrificing throughput. ScanWorks Fast Flash programming technology delivers the speed needed to make the move from off-board to in-system!
When Cost matters ... ScanWorks Fast Flash technology delivers!
How is your flash designed on your board?
ScanWorks Processor-based Fast Programming (PFP) is a simple tool to quickly develop a device programming action to be added to your production test program. A processor specific target-resident agent is the key proprietary ScanWorks technology that enables fast flash programming. The agent is automatically downloaded into the SoC, which is the engine that programs the flash device at device speeds.
The ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments is supported by a wide variety of hardware controllers and accessories with which engineers can connect ScanWorks to their unit under test (UUT). Hardware is available for development, production and repair environments. The test platform required for ScanWorks is either a standard PC or a system with a built-in (embedded) JTAG controller.
