Script Improvements

The Corelis ScanExpress scripting language, shared between ScanExpress applications, has new and improved features for handling data files. Scripts in ScanExpress TPG, Debugger, and JET can take advantage of file access features to read and process data for use in boundary-scan and JET tests.

  • File operations can now specify a read/write mode when accessing files. Scripts with the fopen function can take advantage of additional flexibility when opening or creating files.
  • New functions fcrc32 and crc32data have been added to the script language for generating CRC32 result from a file or from data directly within a script. For example, a data file can be checked for integrity prior to using as a data source for boundary-scan or JET tests.

64-bit DLL for ScanExpress Debugger API

ScanExpress Debugger now includes a 64-bit DLL for direct integration with 64-bit applications. The 64-bit API can be used to directly integrate boundary-scan pin input/output capabilities with a wide variety of applications including NI LabVIEW, TestStand, LabWindows/CVI, Keysight VEE, and a variety of programming languages.
