What’s New in ScanExpress 10.6.0

Coldfire BDM Support with ScanExpress JET

ScanExpress JET can now support the Background Debug Mode (BDM) interface when using USB-1149.1/1E, USB-1149.1/4E, and NetUSB II JTAG controllers. BDM is commonly used in NXP microcontrollers in place of JTAG and allows ScanExpress JET to communicate with the processor core and execute at-speed embedded hardware tests. For NetUSB II, TCK Mode must be set to Gated when connecting to BDM interfaces, and the interface should be connected as defined in the table below.

JTAG Technology

I2C ACK Test

I2C protocol flash/EEPROM devices can now include a non-intrusive ACK test to check for device I2C device presence without altering the device contents. Existing flash tests must be regenerated in Flash Generator to enable the option.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

ScanExpress version 10.6.0 also includes fixes and improvements across multiple ScanExpress applications. Customers with a current support contract are encouraged to upgrade to the latest versions.
