GOEPEL electronic

GOEPEL electronic, worldwide leading provider of JTAG/Boundary Scan solutions compliant with IEEE Std. 1149.x and xyco technologies AG, ODM vendor and Intel development house with long-term experience in utilising modern x86 processors, have entered a strategic partnership within the frame of the global alliance program GATE™ (GOEPEL Associated Technical Experts). This step is intended to position GOEPEL electronic extending the existing support of the x86 architecture. For xyco technologies the partnership means direct access to the latest test technologies already during the development stage of new processor boards. In addition to new IP developments, implementations of JTAG/Boundary Scan solutions with particular emphasis on processor emulation tests especially for Intel platforms are in the focus of the cooperation.

“By partnering with xyco technologies we purposefully integrated highly specialised technology vendors into our alliance platform, and open important synergies for new development projects”, says Frank Amm, GOEPEL electronic’s Corporate GATE Program Manager. “I am particularly pleased that this cooperation gives us the opportunity to react more flexible to numerous customer requirements with regard to the Intel platform. By xyco technologies’ excellent know how and long-term experience we find us optimally positioned in this segment in the future.”

“Last year we already utilised GOEPEL electronic’s test tools in implementing our Intel tunnel creek design IP modules, and have been excited by the Company’s competence and the JTAG/Boundary Scan system solutions’ quality”, adds Manfred Jendrny, chairman of xyco technologies AG. “We have successfully gone this way also with our modular design IP solutions wit Intel Sandybridge and aim to enter new applications and markets by the cooperation within the GATE program.”

Both partners strategically focus on joint developments and marketing of combined test and design IP solutions incl. software and hardware. Emphasis is laid on the VarioTAP® technology for processor emulation as well as the development of new modules for the integrated JTAG/Boundary Scan development environment SYSTEM CASCON™ in view of embedded systems. Additionally, xyco technologies receives direct access to new IP developments to being able to provide design and test services as one-stop shop.
