JTAG/Boundary-Scan controllers operate the logic devices of boards and enable testing and programming of the boards, or FPGAs and processors. The SCANBOOSTER II is a new generation of JTAG/Boundary Scan controllers and is particularly suitable for beginners. Based on modern multi-core processors and FPGA, the flexibly configurable compact unit supports a variety of embedded technologies. These are test and validation methods that use functions of circuits to test and program complex assemblies with little physical access.
Compared to its predecessor, the new controller offers support for all access technologies (previously only Boundary Scan), the use of new interface cards and the possibility of control via GBit LAN (previously only USB). Thanks to its optimized price/performance ratio, it can also be used in very cost-sensitive applications, with full support from the integrated Embedded JTAG Solutions software platform SYSTEM CASCON. Due to its compatibility with the more powerful SCANFLEX II hardware platform, test programs can be transferred directly.
SCANBOOSTER II is a unified control system platform with up to 2 independent, true parallel Test Access Ports (TAP) for up to 16MHz, as well as a programmable, multifunctional 32 channel I/O mixed-signal unit. This enables synchronized execution of embedded test, debug and programming operations via Boundary Scan (IEEE1149.x), Processor Emulation, Chip Integrated Instruments or the Embedded Diagnostics method. Due to their compactness, the controllers can be used as desktop devices as well as for integration into other system environments. USB2.0 and GBit LAN are integrated as standard control interfaces.
