Insight from inside the Chip and Board
Chip Debug with ScanWorks and SourcePoint
The challenge of debugging, characterizing and verifying today’s high-performance SoCs, FPGAs and ASICs has grown exponentially as complexity increased and geometries shrunk. Fortunately, with the right tools you can access embedded debug technologies like IJTAG and Coresight. And you’ll find all the insight you need.
Tapping into all of those DFT instruments like memory BIST should not be as complex as the SoC design you’re verifying. ScanWorks and its IJTAG tools simplify verification with one access method for all instruments, even those with IEEE 1500 wrappers that you can’t access with JTAG.
IJTAG and CoreSight
IJTAG and ARM’s CoreSight pack a whole lot of diagnostics into your SoC. ScanWorks and SourcePoint give you access to IJTAG DFT embedded instruments for hardware verification and CoreSight resources for software debug and trace. And you meet the next milestone on the development schedule!
Pre Tape-out Firmware Debug
Why wait for tape-out to make sure your firmware and software works the way you expect? By then, you’re playing catchup. You’re behind before you’ve even started. SourcePoint’s debug and trace tools let you start when you want to.
