ASSET InterTech is a provider of advanced solutions for the test and measurement industry. Its ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments is deployed by manufacturers to validate, test and debug their chips, circuit boards and entire systems. The software-based ScanWorks platform is a departure from older hardware-based test systems which are typically much more expensive and limited because their capabilities are hardwired. ScanWorks takes advantage of instruments that are embedded into today’s semiconductors to perform test routines that migrate with a system from early development, through manufacturing and into field support. As a result of this portability, test costs are significantly reduced over a product’s life-cycle while quality and reliability are increased. Improved quality and reliability generate significant value for the manufacturer. Lower support costs, fewer product returns, less re-work and satisfied, loyal customers are some of the many benefits.
