The Software Concept of Embedded JTAG Solutions

SYSTEM CASCON Testsoftware


The quality of Embedded JTAG Solutions is significantly determined by the performance and architecture of the used software. SYSTEM CASCON™ is a software platform with comprehensive tools for automated test program generation.

To perfectly address the needs of development, production and customer service, the software packages are available for In-system-programming (ISP) with CASCON POLARIS and ISP and test methods with CASCON GALAXY 

Test Coverage Analyzer in SYSTEM CASCON 4.7.0

New Test Coverage Analyzer for higher test coverage

The new Test Coverage Analyzer is a powerful tool in SYSTEM CASCON Version 4.7. With new features and numerous details, test reports are far beyond simple JTAG/Boundary Scan test reports. The new TCA provides improved information about which nets and pins have been tested sufficiently and which have not.


  • Test Group definition: You can define exactly when an element is considered tested and which attributes are required for it.
  • Extended TCA attribute base: Characteristics such as Level (High/Low), Direction (In/Out) or Speed (Dynamic, Static, Functional, Stress) allow you to see at any time how extensively an element has been tested.
  • Inclusion of Emulation Technologies: VarioTAP, ChipVORX/SI, JEDOS and other technologies are now being mapped the new TCA
  • Improved reports through neighborhood analysis: The neighborhood of an element is identified and analyzed. This significantly increases test coverage accuracy. For example, short circuits are only observed between adjacent pins.
  • Comparison of test coverage results: You can see directly what contribution the different test programs make to test coverage.
  • Import of external test coverage information: Use information from other test systems (e.g. flying probe tester, in-circuit tester) or inspection systems (e.g. AOI, AXI or SPI) for analysis and get more detailed information about the test coverage of your board.
  • Hierarchical visualization: You can adjust the degree of clarity or detail at any time.


The new TCA tool in SYSTEM CASCON 4.7 offers you an optimal approach for analyzing the test coverage of the DUT. This allows you to effectively identify problem areas (e.g. due to insufficient tests) or possible time savings (e.g. due to too many tests).

By using filters and switchable templates for test group definitions, you can change the focus of the analysis with lightning speed. With just a few clicks you can discover not only what was tested, but also how.

To make sure that the software is always up-to-date, upgrades and updates are always available on the customer website GENESIS.
