“With this new range of controllers we are now able to provide an optimal solution in particular for standard applications with high cost pressure and lower performance requirements,” declares Bettina Becker, Marketing and International Sales Manager for GÖPEL electronic. “Because of the extended product assortment we are the exclusive vendor of one-stop solutions in all performance and price categories.”
The ScanBooster/PCI is equipped with two separate TAP and supports a programmable TCK frequency of maximal 16MHz. Both TAP are independently programmable with regard to output voltage, input voltage, output impedance and input impedance. By utilizing GÖPEL electronic’s CION™ ASICs as driver circuit, the TAP have outstanding good signal integrity in combination with special features for interface protection.
The controller offers additional resources such as dynamic 32bit Parallel I/O, trigger signals, an SCP bus for system extensions and a specific interface for parallel gang testing of up to eight UUT.
The new controllers are interface compatible to former hardware generations. Previously developed test programs can be cross compatible on each SCANFLEX® platform without recompilation.
The ScanBooster/PCI is completely supported by the industry leading Boundary Scan software SYSTEM CASCON™. SYSTEM CASCON™ is the only integrated development environment with a specific Mixed Signal Boundary Scan programming language (CASLAN) for IEEE 1149.1/IEEE 1149.4 including more than 30 tools for the automated test program generation (ATPG), pin failure diagnostic (PFD), in-system programming (ISP) as well as extensive verification through debugging at schematic and layout level.
The first controllers will be available December 2005.
