Cerritos, CA, March 13, 2007 – Corelis Inc., a leading supplier of high-performance boundary-scan and emulation tools, announced today the availability of ScanExpress Programmer™, a new universal in-system programming (ISP) tool which supports programming of CPLD, FPGA, serial EPROMs and flash memory devices. ScanExpress Programmer™ supports the most common programming methodologies, including SPI, I2C, JTAG and CPU assisted. Users are now able to use a single software and hardware package to program all the different programmable devices on their target.

ScanExpress Programmer™ is used for in-system programming of non-volatile memory devices utilizing serial protocols such as SPI, I2C, and JTAG. The tool can program flash memory devices on a board with a working JTAG scan-chain where the pins on the memory device are accessible through the boundary-scan component(s) I/O pins. Furthermore, the tool can program memory devices connected to a CPU using the CPU’s JTAG emulation capabilities to program the flash memory at the theoretical speeds.  Additional features of the tool include dumping memory contents to a file, powerful fault detection and diagnostic, and parallel (gang) programming support where devices on multiple boards are programmed and verified in parallel.  Utilizing Corelis’ high- performance boundary-scan controllers, test clock (TCK) rates up to 100 MHz are supported.

“As programmable devices and flash memories continue to populate the PCB industry, it is important that engineers have a single, easy-to-use tool that allows them to program a memory device they encounter,” said Karla May, Boundary-Scan Product Marketing Manager at Corelis. “ScanExpress Programmer™ eliminates the need for multiple programming tool sets, reducing the learning curve along with setup and programming times.”

ScanExpress Programmer™ is immediately available with PCI, USB 2.0 and Ethernet-based controllers. Prices start from $5,000.

Corelis, a EWA company, offers a broad line of test, programming, development, and bus analysis products that combine exceptional ease-of-use with advanced technical innovation. Corelis also provides custom engineering services and is well-known for its outstanding customer support.
