A portfolio of technologies for testing, programming, validation, and functional verification at chip, board, and system level, under the umbrella of Embedded System Access (ESA) is being presented by Goepel electronics at the Electronics Design Show in Coventry (October 21-22). Visitors can find out all about the possibilities of JTAG/Boundary Scan.
Both hardware as well as software solutions will be presented.
Interest is primarily focused on the Embedded System Access (ESA) technology for processor-assisted and FPGA-assisted test and programming. As part of it, GOEPEL electronics will present the ESA Coach, a special evaluation and training kit supporting the ESA technology.
The package offers practical training of all Embedded System Access technologies such as Boundary Scan, Processor Emulation Test and Chip Embedded Instruments by means of respective tutorials, additionally allowing for the development and validation of individual Intellectual Properties (IP).
ESA technologies enable the electrical access to embedded systems without utilizing mechanical nails or probe contacts and are currently the most modern strategies for validation, test, debug and programming.
The software for electrical test by GOEPEL electronics will be represented by the ChipVORX and VarioTAP technologies. ChipVORX is an Intellectual Property (IP) based technology for implementation, access and control of Chip Embedded Instruments via IEEE1149.x/JTAG, which also supports FPGA Embedded Instruments in the form of softcores.
VarioTAP is a processor emulation technology developed by GOEPEL electronics. Thereby, a processor is reconfigured to provide design-integrated test and programming instruments via the native debug port.
