May 31, 2012 - Platform controllers PCIe-1000 and PCIe-410 support ScanWorks validation, test, and debug tools. Able to accelerate test throughput by plugging into high-speed PCIe bus in PC where ScanWorks is running, kits can apply ScanWorks non-intrusive board tests (NBT) to circuit board. PCIe-1000 consists of single-TAP controller for JTAG testing, and PCIe-410 controller kit has 4-port interface pod that can test up to 4 circuit boards simultaneously.

New PCIe-1000 and PCIe-410 are platform controllers supporting ScanWorks validation, test and debug tools

Richardson, TX - Two new controller kits for the ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments from ASSET® InterTech ( can accelerate test throughput by plugging into the high-speed PCI Express® (PCIe) bus in the personal computer where ScanWorks is running. ASSET is the leading supplier of tools for embedded instrumentation.

The new controller kits can apply ScanWorks non-intrusive board tests (NBT) to a circuit board. The PCIe-1000 is a single-TAP controller used for cost-effective JTAG testing. The PCIe-410 controller kit has a four-port interface pod which can test as many as four circuit boards simultaneously, reducing test times in high-volume manufacturing applications. Both the PCIe-1000 and the PCIe-410 controllers can also program memory or logic devices that have already been soldered to a circuit board.

"Both of these controllers take advantage of the high speeds of the PCI Express bus in the PC that is hosting ScanWorks. That means that ScanWorks will execute faster on the PC," said Kent Zetterberg, ASSET's boundary-scan test product manager. "Then, when the tests are applied to the unit under test (UUT), ScanWorks can execute JTAG tests at the speed of the processor, the FPGA or the boundary-scan devices on the board, up to the maximum speed supported by the controller. An additional advantage to the PCIe-410 controller is that it supports parallel test and programming operations via JTAG."

Pricing and Availability

The PCIe-1000 and PCIe-410 controller kits are available now from ASSET InterTech and its distributors. Pricing starts at $4,995. For product information, call 888-694-6250, fax 972-437-2826, e-mail or visit
