In a world of innovation in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles, think about how far we have come in technology. Now imagine where we are going to take it.

Formerly, cars were mostly mechanical, metal linkages, with oil bath filters, and internal combustion. Today, cars are sophisticated industrial achievements. They come manufactured with outstanding safety features, intricate navigation systems, variable-valve timing and lift technology, with the capacity to make imperative decisions, and self- drive. These innovative developments require high-level boundary-scan, at speed, non-intrusive functional testing, ideal for advancing the quality of your product and value of your brand into the future of automotive.

More about ScanExpress JET

ScanExpress JET automates at-speed functional test development for embedded system peripheral components that interface with an IEEE-1149.1 compatible CPU. Because it is non-intrusive, ScanExpress JET tests can be used to verify electronic assembly of automotive system modules without modifying the PCB circuitry or the on-board firmware, and may even be combined with traditional Corelis boundary-scan tests steps in a single test sequence.


The JET development system can be used across multiple CPU platforms using a built-in peripheral component library. Tests for standard components are automatically created, while the powerful diagnostic script engine provides test engineers with a platform for interacting with system registers as well as loading and executing embedded code. The JET script engine operates over a processor JTAG port to provide users simplified access to the following operations:

  • Run, Stop, and Step Function
  • Write to Registers & Memory
  • Read from Registers & Memory
  • Exchange Parameters with the JTAG Host
  • Display CPU Status

The host software automatically uses these features to download test & diagnostic routines into the CPU cache or external memory. These routines then execute at full processor speed and report results back to the host system.

Simple Connection to a
Unit-Under-Test (UUT)

JET requires a UUT with a JTAG-enabled processor and external access to its Test Access Port (TAP). A Corelis highspeed JTAG controller serves as the interface between the PC and the TAP interface. System boards typically include a single JTAG TAP connector dedicated to each CPU. This TAP is often used for JTAG–based software debug and can be leveraged for additional tests with ScanExpress JET. Boards may also include additional JTAG TAP connectors for boundary-scan test and in-system programming.


The ScanExpress JET system is also able to handle cases where more than one JTAG-compliant device is connected in a single scan chain, as well as systems with multiple TAP connections.
