Access is key .... with Embedded System Access you need just 10 pins for full capability
The webinar deals with the Embedded System Access (ESA) technologies for test, programming, validation and debugging of electronic assemblies and components. The essence of ESA is the provision of test-pin electronics in the target system itself. Activating ESA results in a temporary transformation of the respective system, allowing it to be tested in partitions by embedded test centers under control of the integrated test bus.
Key elements of this infrastructure include Boundary Scan devices, microprocessors, FPGAs and devices (such as ASICs) with chip-embedded instruments. The transition to ESA enables the observation and stimulation of signals directly in the circuitry, without signal distortion created by cabling and probing, making ESA a perfect foundation for the test of high-speed signals. At the same time, ESA provides enormous potential for completely new test and measurement applications, which require a new generation of ATE solutions. Pioneers in this arena are multi-dimensional JTAG/Boundary Scan instrumentation platforms with capabilities for interaction with other test access technologies.
Estimated Length: 45 minutes
Who should attend?
Design engineers, design executives, test engineers, test executives, CEOs contract designers and contract manufacturers, production engineers, production executives
No special knowledge required, but it would be useful if attendees have already dealt with subjects such as 'electrical test', 'design-for-test', 'Flash or FPGA programming', 'Boundary Scan/JTAG/IEEE1149.x'
- Boundary scan is moving forwards and is so much more than just interconnection tests now.
- How to turn a device such as an FPGA or microprocessor on a board into an internal test system.
- How testing that previously required high numbers of access pins can still be done when physical external access is no longer possible.
