The SCANBOOSTER II controller works with modern multi-core processors and FPGA to supports a wide range of embedded technologies. These test and validation methods use functions within integrated circuits to test and program complex assemblies with little physical access.
In the bundle, the controller offers two independent, truly parallel Test Access Ports (TAP) with TCK up to 16MHz. To supplement JTAG access the controller also contains 32 channels of programmable multifunctional I/O.
This enables the synchronized execution of embedded test, debug and programming operations via Boundary Scan (IEEE1149.x), processor emulation, Chip Integrated Instruments or the Embedded Diagnostics procedure. Due to its 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.
The software platform SYSTEM CASCON is available in three editions. CASCON RunTime is offered as a pure test station. This allows all types of existing test programs to be executed. For development stations you can choose between CASCON GALAXY DS BASE/SX and CASCON GALAXY DS STANDARD/SX. The DS BASE Edition provides Boundary Scan entry-level tools for automatic test program generation (ATPG) and pin failure diagnostics (PFD) for infrastructure and interconnection test it also comes with numerous boundary scan debug tools. The DS-STANDARD Edition enhances this capability by including ATPG & PFD for memory devices and device model tests. Also included are the ISP (In-System Programming) routines and the powerful Test Coverage Analyzer.
