Maxim joins growing list of instrumentation solutions providers who are choosing ScanWorks’ open tools

Richardson, TX (August 12, 2008) –ASSET® InterTech (, the leading supplier of open tools for embedded instrumentation, has announced that its ScanWorks® platform supports unique margining and forensics capabilities through several of Maxim Integrated Products’ ( system monitor and system manager devices.

ScanWorks can be used with Maxim’s MAX16031/MAX16032 system monitors and MAX16046-MAX16049 system managers through the devices’ IEEE 1149.1 Boundary Scan interface, commonly known as JTAG. One example of a ScanWorks application would be measuring and manipulating voltages so that power supplies on circuit boards and in systems could be functionally validated.

“ScanWorks is powerful in that it can access, automate and analyze embedded instrumentation, such as the voltage margining, embedded in these devices,” said Rick Gould, Executive Director, Business Management, in Maxim’s System and Power Management Business Unit. “Several of our customers requested we seek ScanWorks support. Now, engineers can use our tools during design and ScanWorks throughout the product lifecycle, including design, manufacturing and field service.”

“Maxim now supplies a family of devices which can margin voltages and measure system current, temperature and voltage variations, storing the results,” said Dave Bonnett, technical marketing manager for ASSET. “These capabilities are essential for systems with high-reliability requirements, such as telecom systems, servers and storage.”

ScanWorks® – The Embedded Instrumentation Platform

ASSET, through its ScanWorks platform, is applying its more than two decades of experience as a leading tools supplier for the boundary-scan (IEEE 1149.1 JTAG) market to developing open embedded instrumentation tools. Boundary scan, as a test technology that is embedded into chips and circuit boards, is one of several technologies that can form the basis for an embedded instrumentation toolset.
