Corelis Adds Freescale Hardware Support to Runner-Lite
Cerritos, CA — Corelis, Inc., a subsidiary of Electronic Warfare Associates, Inc., is now offering free Runner-Lite test executive that is compatible with Freescale USB TAP probes. This added support allows existing Freescale hardware users to execute pre-generated JTAG-based test procedures on select Freescale reference designs. In conjunction with adding Freescale hardware support, the company has also distributed a downloadable test procedure for the Freescale QorIQ® P1024 reference design board (RDB).

The P1024 RDB represents the first of several Freescale reference designs to be fully supported by Runner-Lite test procedures. Runner-Lite provides engineers with visibility, awareness, and accessibility to board level boundary-scan and functional testing. Each test procedure provides comprehensive fault detection and isolation of boundary-scan chain infrastructure, board interconnect, pull-up/pull-down resistors, and clusters such as memories and UARTs.

The software also includes a powerful graphical fault identification subsystem to isolate and visualize the location of PCB faults. The subsystem displays a CAD-based photographic representation of a reference design on the host PC display to facilitate the rapid discovery of the actual location for any failure, even when the fault is hidden underneath devices.

According to the company, the addition of Freescale hardware support makes direct, convenient JTAG tool access available to a wider audience. Freescale end users can download the software and execute a full suite of boundary-scan and functional tests in a matter of minutes.
