ASSET ScanWorks FCT named to EDN magazine's Hot 100 Products list

Editors at EDN chose ScanWorks from among thousands of new products released during 2011

Richardson, TX – ASSET® InterTech’s ScanWorks® FPGA-controlled test (FCT) has been named to the Hot 100 Products list by the editors of EDN magazine, an authoritative publication and web site serving the electronics industry. ASSET ( is the leading supplier of tools for embedded instrumentation.

According to the announcement by EDN, the editors of the magazine chose ScanWorks from among the thousands of new products released over the past year. “Here are the 100 (products) that caught the attention of our editors and our readers based on innovation, significance, and popularity,” the announcement said. Being included on the Hot 100 list follows on the heels of ScanWorks FCT being named a finalist for a Best-in-Test award from Test & Measurement World magazine. That announcement was made Nov. 15.

“ScanWorks FCT has certainly struck a chord in the industry,” said Glenn Woppman, president and CEO of ASSET. “Winning one or winning several awards is always very gratifying for us, but the real significance of these honors is they point out that all of our ScanWorks products address very pressing needs in the industry. Since ScanWorks is an open tools platform for embedded instruments, we are able to respond quickly to emerging requirements by providing innovation leadership.”

According to Rich Pell, Executive Editor of EDN, “What struck the editors of EDNabout ScanWorks FCT was that it attacks certain board test challenges with an approach that utilizes embedded instrumentation. ASSET didn’t introduce just another external tester. By working with instruments embedded in silicon, ScanWorks validates, tests and debugs circuit boards from the inside out. In this case ScanWorks FCT inserts multiple embedded instruments temporarily into a functional FPGA that isn’t dedicated to test, configures these instruments as a board tester and then operates the embedded tester from a drag-and-drop interface.”
