ScanExpress Runner Data Analytics Interface

Boundary-scan Dual and Quad SPI In-System Programming

ScanExpress software now supports dual and Quad SPI programming with boundary-scan. Using dual and quad mode significantly decreases program and verify time with SPI flash devices. New flash device models are required for dual and quad mode operation; customers with a current maintenance contract can contact support@corelis.com with flash part number information for new models.

Other ScanExpress Feature Enhancements

The ScanExpress suite of software has been updated with the latest improvements and fixes. Featured enhancements include:

  • ScanExpress JET flash programming operations now include Persistent Protection Bit (PPB) support for Cypress flash devices. PPB support allows more options for protecting and unprotection flash data prior to and after erase, program, and verify operations.
  • The ScanExpress Runner application now has the option to tri-state the JTAG controller parallel IO pins after test plan execution. This new feature provides greater support of integration with other test systems; for example, functional tests that also use the JTAG pins can be executed immediately after boundary-scan tests without disconnecting the JTAG controller.
  • A new VB.NET example project for the ScanExpress Debugger application programming interface (API) is included. This example can be used with the latest Microsoft Visual Studio to integrate ScanExpress Debugger with VB.NET applications.
