USB-100 Portable Boundary Scan Controller
The USB-100 Boundary-Scan Controller is a low-cost, easy-to-use and portable hardware interface for ScanWorks® and a unit under test (UUT). The USB-100 can be easily moved from ScanWorks stations in an office to the lab, or it can be used in field service applications where it interfaces a laptop computer to installed systems. Instead of being installed in an internal slot or bay, the USB-100 simply plugs into a USB port on the PC where ScanWorks is running. The USB-100 is based on the USB 2.0 specification that has a much higher throughput rate than USB 1.1. USB 1.1 is supported, but not recommended for most applications.
The compact USB-100 is about the size of a deck of playing cards. A standard, off-the-shelf USB 2.0 mini-B cable connects the USB-100 to a PC, making it easy to transport and connect. A large pod is not needed to connect ScanWorks to a UUT in the field or in manufacturing environments.
