Evaluation kit provides practical training for embedded system access

March 08, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Goepel electronic has introduced ESA Coach, a special evaluation and training kit supporting Embedded System Access (ESA) technologies. The demonstration board enables the practical training of all Embedded System Access technologies such as Boundary Scan, Processor Emulation Test and Chip Embedded Instruments by means of respective tutorials, additionally allowing for the development and validation of individual Intellectual Properties (IP).

In addition to a microcontroller with ARM core, the ESA Coach includes an FPGA, various Boundary Scan circuits, NAND and NOR Flash, DDR2-SDRAM as well as a colour display and diverse operating elements. All ESA technologies such as FPGA Assisted Test, FPGA Assisted Programming, Processor Emulation Test, Core Assisted Programming, Boundary Scan, In-System Programming and Chip Embedded Instruments can be demonstrated and compared due to their performance. Furthermore, the demonstration board provides an extension connector and various fault switches in order to verify the single test operations' diagnosis ability. The Kit also contains a demo version of System Cascon release 4.6 as well as associated VarioTAP and ChipVORX models for Processor Emulation or controlling FPGA Embedded Instruments.
