Programming memory on the manufacturing line after the devices have been soldered to a circuit board must be accomplished quickly to keep pace with the assembly process. Unfortunately, the capacity of flash has gotten so large and the amount of data being programmed into them so extensive that the process has slowed considerably.

A new eBook published by ASSET® InterTech (www.asset-intertech.com) explains how distributed architectures and on-board field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) accessed via JTAG can be deployed to accelerate in-line in-system programming (ISP) without jeopardizing the manufacturing beat rate.

“Parallel programming – or loading data into multiple circuit boards simultaneously – speeds up the process by orders of magnitude,” said Kent Zetterberg, technical product manager for the ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments. “In addition, a programming engine can be temporarily inserted into an on-board FPGA to program multiple devices on the same board at the same time. When you start adding up all of the factors, you’ve got a really fast in-line programming process.”

Titled “Fast Flash Parallel In-System Programming”, the new eBook is available for free and can be downloaded from the eResources center on the ASSET website at: http://www.asset-intertech.com/Products/

About ASSET InterTech

ASSET InterTech is a leading supplier to the electronics industry of tools based on embedded instrumentation. Its SourcePoint debugger and the ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments overcome the limitations of external test and measurement equipment by applying instrumentation embedded in code and semiconductors to debug and validate software and firmware, and to perform design validation and manufacturing test on chips and circuit boards. ASSET’s recent acquisition of Arium (www.arium.com) added a powerful suite of firmware debug and trace tools to the ScanWorks platform. Designers can quickly debug firmware and then diagnose how it interacts with hardware. ASSET InterTech is located at 2201 North Central Expressway, Suite 105, Richardson, TX 75080.
