What’s New in ScanExpress 9.5

TI MSP430 Spy-Bi-Wire Programming

NetUSB II multi-TAP JTAG controllers can now be used to program MSP430 devices using the Spy-Bi-Wire protocol. Spy-Bi-Wire is a serialized JTAG protocol that allows programming of Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontrollers over a two-wire interface instead of the traditional four-wire JTAG interface.

ScanExpress Programmer API Functions

The ScanExpress Programmer API now features functions to override programming file options at runtime in addition to functions to execute programming actions with a custom set of parameters and dump memory contents to a file.

New functions include:

sepFPISetProgOption Override the programming options specified in a preloaded FPI programming file.
sepFPISetProgOffset Override the programming offset option specified in a preloaded FPI programming file.
sepFPISetProgTck Override the TCK frequency value specified in a preloaded FPI programming file.
sepFPISetProgPIO Override the parallel I/O options specified in a preloaded FPI programming file.
sepFPIDump Dump flash memory contents to a file.
FlashProgrammer Load and execute flash programming actions according to a set of parameters.

Support for PXIe-1149.1/4E

All ScanExpress applications now support the new PXIe-1149.1/E High-Performance 4-TAP PXI Express JTAG Controller. The PXIe-1149.1/4E brings the same high-speed USB-1149.1/4E architecture to a PXI Express (PXIe) form factor for integration with PXI/PXIe ATE systems. Please contact Corelis Sales for pricing and availability.

ScanExpress JET CPU Support & Improvements

ScanExpress JET now supports PowerPC 750 processors and 32-bit AURIX TriCore Microcontrollers. Each new processor support package includes base RAM and NOR flash tests and programming support. Please contact Corelis Sales for pricing and availability.
