Richardson, TX, and North Reading, MA — ASSET® InterTech and Teradyne have extended the integration of the JTAG and boundary-scan test capabilities of ASSET's ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments into Teradyne's PXI Express-based High Speed Subsystem (HSSub).

Last year, the two companies collaborated to integrate Scanworks into Teradyne's VXI-based Di-Series instruments, which are widely deployed in large-scale test systems in defense/aerospace, such as the Spectrum 9100 and Lockheed Martin's LM-START. Now, the companies are collaborating again, this time to integrate the non-intrusive, software-based ScanWorks tools with Teradyne's HSSub, which provides support for custom and standardized high-speed digital buses in new or legacy test systems deployed in the defense and aerospace market. As a result, users of these ATE systems with Teradyne's PXI Express-based instruments will have immediate access to the cost-effective and robust boundary-scan and JTAG test and programming solutions on the ScanWorks platform.
ScanWorks was integrated into Teradyne's HSSub through its Boundary Scan Runtime Library (TERBSR), a software facility that gives access to several of its instrument families through an application programming interface. As a result of the integration, the ScanWorks boundary-scan and JTAG tools are able to test a circuit board through the high-speed communications channels on a Teradyne instrument. These channels connect ScanWorks to the boundary-scan Test Access Port on the circuit board that's being tested.
