Goepel Intros Boundary Scan Platform
Controller for cabled PCI Express standard.
Jena, Germany — Goepel electronic has introduced a new controller series compliant with PCI Express External Cabling specification, a new addition to the revolutionary JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware platform SCANFLEX
. The new family of Boundary Scan controllers (SFX Controllers) — SFX/PEC1149 — includes three models in different performance classes. SFX/PEC1149-(x) is the eighth in the family of SCANFLEX controllers available in three performance classes: A, B and C.
The new controller follows SFX controllers for PCI, PCIe, PXI, PXIe, USB/LAN, FireWire and LXI. The A, B and C models differ in the maximum TCK frequency (20, 50, and 80MHz, respectively) and in the degree of implementation of the enhanced SPACE? chip set for high performance scan operations. In contrast to conventional solutions, the integrated FASTSCALE
technology allows an upgrade of the controller's performance class "on the fly", without intricate fitting of additional hardware. Standard features on all SCANFLEX controllers include ADYCS
II for signal path delay compensation, and HYSCAN
for dynamic splitting of serial TAP vectors and parallel I/O vectors.
The new controller family's x1 configuration achieves transfer rates up to 264MB/s in "zero wait state burst mode" and is based upon the PCI Express external cabling hardware specification 1.0. The distance between PC and controller can be up to five meters without performance loss.
In combination with additional modular components, such as SCANFLEX TAP transceivers (SFX Transceiver) and SCANFLEX I/O modules (SFX Modules) PCI Express controlled Boundary Scan systems with up to eight Test Access Ports (TAP) and 31 additional functional modules can be configured. All TAP are programmable in up to eight interface parameters. Furthermore, resources such as 32 dynamic I/O, two analog I/O channels, three static I/O, and trigger lines are standard features.
The new controller is fully supported in the Boundary Scan Software System Cascon
from version 4.4.2 on.
