Boundary Scan Platform SCANFLEX with revolutionary VarioCore Module from GĂ–PEL
Oct 10, 2006
GÖPEL electronic, world-class vendor of JTAG/Boundary Scan solutions compliant with IEEE Std. 1149.x introduces SFX-5350, the first digital I/O module with VarioCore(TM) technology in the framework of its award winning JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANFLEX®.
The basic function of SFX-5350 is being a differential I/O module with 50 channels. Because of its integrated VarioCore(TM) technology it can be configured as an on-board programmer, test tool instrument or verification tool.
"With SCANFLEX® we launched the very first Extended Boundary Scan System on the market and set the standard in creating a completely new performance class in terms of flexibility, modularity and productivity" announced Thomas Wenzel, managing director of GÖPEL electronic's Boundary Scan Division. "From the user's point of view, this means the availability of a universal multifunction platform that, in addition to pure JTAG/Boundary Scan applications, extensively supports other test, programming and verification strategies, and moreover offers completely new prospects. Offering this seminal technology, GĂ–PEL electronic once again sets a course as the leading Boundary Scan innovator."
SFX-5350 is controlled via the SCANFLEX® internal parallel bus, independent of the TAPs. The standard version provides 50 bi-directional differential channels, which can be programmed as input and output, allowing driving and measuring at the same time. This extends the test coverage to connectors or backplanes for example.
VarioCore(TM) enables a reconfiguration of the module on IP basis with nearly unlimited functionality. This reconfiguration is dynamically executed in a split second, controlled by GÖPEL electronic's JTAG/Boundary Scan program package SYSTEM CASCON(TM), the number and sequence of reconfigurations are unlimited within a test run.
