Freescale iMX6 processors added to Goepel's VarioTAP model libraries

June 14, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Goepel electronic has released special VarioTAP model libraries for the Freescale iMX6 processor series enabling processor emulation and extended Freescale MCU support.

The VarioTAP model libraries are structured as intelligent IP, enabling a complete fusion of Boundary Scan test and JTAG emulation. Users are able to execute hardware design validation and prototype tests without firmware. In addition to customer-specific tests, the VarioTAP model methodololgy provides accelerated in-system programming of Flash and significantly increased fault coverage. 

The energy-efficient iMX6 application processors provide up to six cores and are based on a 32-bit ARM Cortex A9 RISC architecture providing clock frequencies up to 1.2 GHz. They are integrated as BGA components with up to 624 integrated pins, not allowing direct contacting to external instruments. VarioTAP can be used to provide design-integrated tools for test, hardware debug, Flash programming and design validation after chip mounting.
