Corelis ScanExpress Adds Boundary-Scan Test Capability to the Blackhawk XDS560T-Class JTAG Emulator

Corelis Inc., a leading supplier of high-performance boundary-scan (JTAG) test tools
named ScanExpress, announced today boundary-scan interconnect test support for Blackhawk
XDS560-class JTAG emulators. This added capability allows Blackhawk emulator users to
integrate JTAG debug and testing into their existing design, development, and production

Corelis already provides the widest option of high-performance boundary-scan
controllers on PCI, PCIe, PXI, USB 2.0 and Ethernet platforms supporting test clock speeds
up to 100 MHz. Now Blackhawk emulator controllers can work directly with ScanExpress
software products, including the new ScanExpress Debugger™, an excellent, low-cost
tool for engineers doing hardware debug during prototype design, verification, and
testing. ScanExpress Debugger™ is very useful for finding shorts and opens on and
between BGA devices and any fine-pitch component.

“The integration of Corelis Boundary Scan tools with the Blackhawk emulator line
provides important new capability to assist TI DSP developers in designing, powering up,
and testing new board designs,” said Stephen Lau, TI Emulation Technology Product

“Blackhawk emulators have become synonymous with TI DSP development. Corelis recognized
the opportunity to provide a boundary-scan debug and test solution to Blackhawk customers,
while still allowing them to use their existing test hardware,” said Karla May, Corelis
Boundary-Scan Product Manager. “In addition to lowering costs, adding boundary-scan test
support to an already familiar controller allows engineers to integrate their designs much
more quickly.”

The ScanExpress support product for Blackhawk XDS560-class JTAG emulators is available
from stock. Prices start from $2,950.
