At productronica 2011, GOEPEL electronic announces the market introduction of a new series of ChipVORX® model libraries for the universal frequency measurement on the basis of special FPGA soft macros.

The ChipVORX® models are modular IPs for the control of chip-embedded instruments and now also enable the FPGA-assisted test of clock signals and the measurement of frequencies directly in the system application. This allows the verification of the signal dynamics and the increase of the test coverage, whereby the workflow is fully automated on the software side. As the procedure does without FPGA design synthesis, dynamic adaptation of the test sequence e.g. for operative hardware debugging at the most varied signal pins is possible without any problems.

“More and more users are using design integrated FPGAs as natural test centres for the implementation of innovative test and programming strategies. With ChipVORX we are not only offering the perfect instrumentation for this, but now also the opportunity to perform parametric measurements,“ says Thomas Wenzel, Managing Director of the Boundary Scan Division at GOEPEL electronic. “After the already available solution for Flash programming and at-speed RAM Access Test, this is another milestone in the implementation or our long-term development strategy in the field of FPGA assisted rest. At the same time we are continuing to extend our leading position in the field of chip-embedded instrumentation.”

The ChipVORX®-IPs for universal frequency measurement configure in the FPGA a corresponding instrument, which can be fully controlled by the user via the standardised IEEE 1149.1 TAP. IN addition to the frequency measurement, a counter function is also available. These features enable not only the checking of clock signals, but also the verification of impulses, indeterministic signal changes or stuck-at O/1 faults. While the control for the automated production test is executed within the framework of the test program, graphic panels are also available for interactive debugging. The execution of the test programs is possible on any run-time station without further options. Gang applications are also supported.

The ChipVORX® models for universal frequency measurement were developed in close cooperation with the company Testonica and are currently available for all FPGA families from Altera® and Xilinx®. Additional models are already being developed. The use of IPs demands neither professional background knowledge nor special FPGA tools of the user, nor continuous IP adaptations.

The new ChipVORX® IP models are supported as standard from SYSTEM CASCON™ version 4.6 and activated via licence manager just as the system software. SYSTEM CASCON™ is a professional JTAG Boundary Scan development environment with currently 45 fully integrated ISPs, testing and debugging tools developed by GÖPEL electronic. On the hardware side, ChipVORX® is fully supported by the controllers of the SCANBOOSTER® series as well as the hardware platform SCANFLEX®.
