On-site Training Classes and Support 

 

We understand that tight schedules and tighter travel budgets make it difficult for some organizations to send their personnel to our headquarters in southern California for a three-day training class, especially when large groups of people are involved. That is why Corelis employs highly-trained instructors that are able to travel and perform our standard three-day training class on-site at a customer's facility. In addition, the on-site training can even be customized for a specific customer board design.

BSDL Tutorial

         

Tutorials

 

This article provides an overview of Boundary-Scan Description Language, BSDL, which is widely used within the IEEE 1149.1 / JTAG community to enable consistent, accurate and useful information to be defined for a boundary-scan-enabled device. In this way, the chip can be incorporated into a design, and its capabilities used to their full in the most efficient manner.

I2C Exerciser Advanced Trigger Tutorial
         

Tutorials

 

The Corelis I2C Exerciser software for CAS-1000-I2C/E and BusPro-I bus analyzers includes a powerful, advanced sequential trigger. Trigger sequences are defined using an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) composed of different conditional elements commonly familiar to engineers and technicians with logic analyzer and oscilloscope experience. This tutorial is intended to introduce advanced I2C Exerciser users to the capabilities of the advanced trigger system.

Design Tips and Guidelines


Boundary-Scan Chain
         

Design for Test

 

A working boundary-scan chain is one of the most critical pieces to performing successful boundary-scan tests. These suggestions provide design engineers the knowledge to correctly implement boundary-scan chains in their projects.

Board Level Design
         

Design for Test

 

Board level design has great importance for successful boundary-scan testing. Because boundary-scan begins at the IC level, it is important that designer engineers follow basic PCB design guidelines to provide useable boundary-scan implementation for all departmental applications.

Improving Test Coverage
         

Design for Test

 

100% test coverage is what everyone strives for, but is extremely difficult and expensive to achieve. These suggestions will help anyone looking to add test coverage into their products using boundary-scan testing.
