15 February 2013
GOEPEL electronic now provides a special package for beginners in JTAG/Boundary Scan or users with cost-sensitive projects.
PicoTAP Designer Studio is a complete Boundary Scan test system including hardware and software, offering an extremely reasonable price-performance-ratio. In addition to a Mixed Signal I/O module, the bundle contains the world’s smallest Boundary Scan controller PicoTAP, which is powered via USB and can be plugged directly into the I/O module.
“Many interested parties have asked for a low-cost Boundary Scan starter package covering quite a number of applications. Our PicoTAP Designer Studio reflects these demands impressively“, says Stefan Meissner, spokesman for GOEPEL electronic GmbH. “Given that the bundle is able to cover a multitude of Boundary Scan applications, for instance prototype hardware debugging or interconnection test between BGA components, it suits for the design stage as well as small batch production. Furthermore, it presents an interesting solution for respective projects at universities and polytechnic colleges.”
The hardware/software bundle contains a PicoTAP controller, a CION Module FXT-96/A and a SYSTEM CASCON Basic/SX Development Station. Because of the included CION I/O module, analogue and digital peripheral ports can also be tested. Additionally, relays and Opto I/O are available to flexibly optimize test coverage.
Two package versions are available, i.e. users may choose their most beneficial version. The bundle’s performance level can be extended from pure test (base version) to additional applications such as in-system programming of small Flash and PLD or memory and cluster test. Numerous hardware and software options are additionally available, so that the test unit’s performance may grow with the application and investments are protected.
