GOEPEL electronic announces the development of special VarioTAP® IPs for 8 bit and 32 bit Atmel micro controller series ATMega and 32 bit AVR UC3. The solution enables the utilization of dynamic Processor Emulation Tests (PET) for hardware fault detection and diagnostic both on board and at system level, additionally supporting fast programming of embedded Flash.
Now users are able to verify hardware prototypes without special operational software. Further advantages are a significant increase in fault coverage in production test and the reduction of investments in additional test and programming equipment.

“Our new VarioTAP models considerably extend the support for Atmel micro controllers, offering interesting prospects for new test strategies in particular for customers in the automotive and industrial Automation industries”, says Stefan Meissner, GOEPEL electronic’s Marketing/PR Manager. “Simultaneously, we create synergies between development and production in terms of reusability of technologies and procedures, enhancing test efficiency and reducing costs.”

The Atmel micro controller series ATmega and 32 Bit AVR UC3, based on a proprietary RISC architecture, feature particularly wide peripheral equipment, associated with high processor performance and low power consumption. VarioTAP® enables the reconfiguration of the integrated processor into a native design embedded test and programming controller by manipulating the standard JTAG debug port. In addition to Boundary Scan (IEEE Std. 1149.x),the strategy named Processor Emulation Test (PET) is the most modern method in the area of embedded test access technologies at the moment, enabling the functional at-speed test of all peripheral micro controller interfaces.

Complementary, VarioTAP® enables the fast programming of embedded or externally connected NAND Flash.

The use of VarioTAP® does not require expert background knowledge, additional development tools or processor-specific pods, which makes the handling easy and uncomplicated. Besides the new types, ARM based Atmel series AT91SAM micro controllers have been supported for some time.
