Corelis adds Boundary Scan features
Corelis Adds Boundary-Scan Scripting Support to its ScanExpress Software Family
Corelis Inc., a supplier of high-performance boundary-scan and emulation tools, announced today the availability of boundary-scan scripting, a new feature that enables the user to create customized testing sessions. The updated ScanExpressTPG and ScanExpress Runner tools now support integrated boundary-scan scripting capabilities. "The powerful scripting language provides greater flexibility and directly adds benefit when developing custom test procedures for clusters with non-boundary-scan logic. Previously, each test vector had to be assigned for all pins and would often result in a lot of manual repetition. Now the user can write a simple function to repeat specific test patterns which greatly compacts the overall test size, makes the test easier to understand, and is much less error prone," said Karla May, Boundary-Scan Product Marketing Manager at Corelis. "The script language also makes functional testing of peripheral devices such as analog-to-digital converters and real-time clocks much simpler requiring less effort for the test engineer. Support for similar devices can also be easily added with simple script modifications", she adds.
