Boundary-scan test sol'n tailored for budget customers

Corelis Inc. presents TestGenie a low-cost, low-risk boundary-scan test solution designed for companies with limited resources, minimal JTAG experience, fixed schedules and tight test budgets.

Ryan Jones, senior technical marketing engineer at Corelis noted that "With capital equipment budgets being harder to come by and fewer resources available for managers to assign, it is evident that the traditional model of owning boundary-scan tools outright and having a resident expert to develop test procedures is not practical for a large number of companies." He adds that the TestGenie is designed "to provide these companies with an affordable boundary-scan solution without sacrificing schedule or test coverage."

TestGenie suits companies that are uncertain if the tool costs will ever be recovered; do not have the resources to allocate to learn boundary-scan or write test procedures; are overwhelmed by the technical requirements for boundary-scan; have a limited number of design projects utilising boundary-scan devices; and are unwilling to take the risk of failing with boundary-scan.

Jones said that "Low-cost boundary-scan tools are nothing new, but they require the user to do all the work. TestGenie completely removes that overhead. It relieves companies of the risk of test procedure development and allows them to assign a variable cost to a specific design project or contract."

The TestGenie system includes board specific perpetual licens ('licence' when noun)es for: ScanExpress Runner, ScanExpress ADO and ScanExpress Viewer; a USB JTAG controller; 12 month hardware and software support contract; and test procedure development for one unit under test.
