ASSET and Synopsys collaborate on proof-of-concept demonstrating an IEEE P1687 IJTAG tools flow

Richardson, TX (May 22, 2014) -- ASSET® InterTech ( www.asset-intertech.com), the leading supplier of tools for embedded instrumentation, today announced it has collaborated with Synopsys, Inc., a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, on a proof-of-concept case study demonstrating the viability of an IJTAG tools ecosystem. Tools are needed to insert and synthesize IEEE P1687 IJTAG embedded instruments into chips and then access those instruments to operate them for circuit board test purposes.

“Now that the IEEE P1687 IJTAG embedded instrumentation standard has passed ballot, it’s time for the various semiconductor test and board test tool vendors who make up the IJTAG ecosystem to start showing chip, board, and system design engineers how to deploy this exciting new technology,” said John Potter, senior principal technologist for ASSET and one of three authors of the case study. “Our case study demonstrates how Synopsys’ DFTMAX™ and TetraMAX®, and ASSET’s ScanWorks® can support the in-situ defect diagnosis in a product life cycle, beginning with chip test and verification, through board-level manufacturing test and diagnostics, and even field service applications.”

“ASSET verifies interoperability between their products and Synopsys DFTMAX to ensure seamless boundary scan test,” said Robert Ruiz, senior marketing manager for test products at Synopsys. “For network designs, we jointly pioneered the first successful iJTAG production flow to provide powerful in-system diagnostics.”

Titled “IEEE P1687 IJTAG Tools Ecosystem – A Case Study”, the new eBook can be downloaded for free from the ASSET web site at: http://www.asset-intertech.com/Products/IJTAG-Test/IJTAG-Test-Software/Embedded-IJTAG-P1687-BIST-Synopsys-DFTMAX-ScanWorks
