QorIQ Processor Libraries enable emulation testing.
June 28, 2012 -
Dedicated model libraries for Freescale QorIQ® processors of series 10xx, 20xx, and 30xx are available to support emulation technology VarioTAP®. Described as VarioTAP® models, libraries are structured modularly as intelligent IP as to enable complete fusion of Boundary Scan test and JTAG emulation. This technology enables users to verify and test hardware without specific firmware as well as program Flash memories. IP models are supported as standard beginning with SYSTEM CASCON(TM) v4.6.

GOEPEL electronics Extends VarioTAP® Emulation Test to Freescale QorIQ® Communication Processors
GOEPEL electronics announces the availability of dedicated model libraries for first Freescale QorIQ processors of the series 10xx, 20xx and 30xx to support the innovative emulation technology VarioTAP®. The libraries, described as VarioTAP® models, are structured modularly as intelligent IP, enabling a complete fusion of Boundary Scan test and JTAG emulation. Employing this technology, users are able to verify and test their hardware without specific firmware as well as program Flash memories.
"The Freescale QorIQ processors enable the development of high-performance, safe and flexible communication solutions for industrial applications, wireless networking and the medical area with high quality demands on the utilized test and programming tools, which we are now able to address with our VarioTAP technology", says Bettina Richter, Marketing Manager with GOEPEL electronic in Germany. "At the same time, this development is another important step towards the future support of all Freescale processor series based on a unique emulation test platform."
The QorIQ processors, based on Power Architecture® feature an especially high energy efficiency combined with scalable performance. VarioTAP® enables the reconfiguration of the integrated processor into a native design embedded test and programming controller. In addition to Boundary Scan (IEEE Std. 1149.x),the strategy named Processor Emulation Test (PET) is the most modern method in the area of Embedded System Access (ESA) technologies at the moment, enabling the functional at-speed test of all peripheral interfaces. The execution of customized IP is also easily achievable.
The use of VarioTAP® does not require expert background knowledge, additional development tools, processor-specific pods or any firmware, which makes handling easy and uncomplicated.
The new VarioTAP IP models are supported as standard beginning with SYSTEM CASCON(TM) version 4.6., and are activated by the licence manager just like the system software. SYSTEM CASCON(TM) is a professional JTAG/Boundary Scan development environment, developed by GOEPEL electronic currently with 45 completely integrated in-system programming, test, debug, and design validation tools.
The VarioTAP models were developed in tight cooperation with the Company iSYSTEM, alliance partner of GOEPEL electronic's GATE program (GOEPEL Associated Technical Experts), experts in the field of software verification based on JTAG emulation.
