Cerritos, CA, August 16, 2002 — Corelis Inc., recently unveiled a new high performance intelligent boundary-scan test and in-circuit programming system, PCI-1149.1/Turbo, that offers in-system programming of CPLDs, FPGAs, and Flash memories, on up to four concurrent (ganged) JTAG chains.  With its ability to deliver test vectors at a sustained test clock (TCK) frequency of 80 MHz, while simultaneously verifying results in hardware at each individual TAP, the PCI-1149.1/Turbo High-Performance boundary-scan Test and In-System Programming System is being offered as the pre­mier solution for users whose applications demand the highest possible scan vector throughput.

The Corelis PCI-1149.1/Turbo is an intelligent Boundary-Scan controller that can be used in the testing of devices, boards, or systems, compliant with IEEE Std 1149.1. The controller offers excellent performance due to its large array of performance-enhancing innovations that increase test vector throughput.  The PCI-1149.1/Turbo interfaces with host software via the industry standard PCI bus and allows a standard PC to be used for boundary-scan testing in various phases of a product life cycle such as design, manufacturing, and field service. Boundary-Scan test vectors developed with Corelis’ ScanPlusTPG Test Program Generator can be executed directly on the PCI-1149.1/Turbo.

“With this new controller design, we are able to support the testing and in-system programming of extremely large, dense and complex board assemblies. This can be accomplished at TCK speeds reaching 80 MHz, thus greatly reducing test times” said David Shapiro, Marketing Director at Corelis Inc. “By having a common test platform for both design and manufacturing, our customers will realize tremendous costs savings. This new controller is an important addition to our existing line of boundary-scan controllers as we can offer our customers optimal solutions, even under the most demanding applications”.

The PCI-1149.1/Turbo controller ships with the ScanTAP-4 remote accesses pod, built-in self‑test software, and Plug and Play Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP device drivers. The PCI‑1149.1/Turbo controller is available from stock with prices starting from $9,000.

Boundary-Scan is an embedded IC technology for in-system programming and testing of digital circuit boards and components that have been standardized as IEEE Std 1149.1.  Corelis’ ScanPlus Boundary-Scan tools include hardware and software products offering exceptional ease-of-use combined with advanced technical innovation.
