CheckSum Teams With Corelis
to Deliver Integrated, Low-Cost Boundary-Scan Test
Los Angeles – February 20, 2007 – CheckSum, a leading supplier of in-circuit test (ICT) systems, announced at APEX that a major consumer audio electronics manufacturer recently ordered multiple CheckSum test and in-system programming (MultiWriter ISP) systems that integrate boundary-scan software and hardware from Corelis, a leading supplier of high-performance boundary-scan and emulation tools.
The customer selected Corelis’ ScanExpress boundary-scan tools to develop JTAG (boundary-scan) test programs that will run on the CheckSum Analyst ems in-circuit tester.
In addition, CheckSum and Corelis will demonstrate integration of Corelis boundary-scan test programs with CheckSum ICT test programs running on a CheckSum Analyst tester at APEX in the CheckSum booth, number 2105.
“Integrating Corelis’ ScanExpress boundary-scan test system with the Analyst ems in-circuit tester allows design and test engineers to develop and apply boundary-scan tests early in the product life cycle during product development and prototype stages,” said a Marketing Director at Corelis. “Then, following product release, the reuse of the same proven test vectors in manufacturing significantly reduces test development costs and time to market. Our customers were asking us to integrate our system with CheckSum Analyst ems in-circuit tester, and we are pleased that Checksum worked with us to deliver this capability.”
Scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2007, the Analyst testers equipped with Corelis boundary-scan hardware and software provide integrated boundary-scan test at a much lower cost than implementing boundary-scan on a traditional in-circuit tester.
John VanNewkirk, CheckSum President and CEO, stated, “This example underscores the benefits of CheckSum’s test system flexibility and our willingness to partner with other best-in-class test solution providers.”
CheckSum’s Analyst testers, including the new Analyst ems+ft and Analyst fcs, offer seamless integration of third-party test solutions, including boundary-scan tools from all the leading suppliers.
