GÖPEL electronic's New SYSTEM CASCON Software Version with Numerous Features

Reading time ( words)

SYSTEM CASCON is the GÖPEL electronic software platform. It serves as the basis for all test techniques such as JTAG/Boundary Scan/IEEE1149.x, Processor Emulation Test, FPGA Assisted Test, Embedded Diagnostics Test, but also for design validation, for debugging, for various programming strategies and for interaction with other external test equipment.

With the new update, a generator, compiler and implementer are now available for IJTAG/IEEE1687 tests. This primarily increases ease of use and execution speed. In addition, analogue switches, level shifters and similar components are now supported in the interconnection test. The end result is that the overall test coverage is increased.

Test procedures for testing RAM memories are already an integral part of SYSTEM CASCON. With the new version, these can now also be tested according to the standard DDR4 connectivity test. This improves test times and diagnostic options.

As a further feature, the Visual Project Explorer (ViPX) has been extended by a new test system view. This provides an overview of the configured test system. With an automated multi-scan chain detection of boards, it also offers fast, interactive access to the test object.

The most visible feature of the new SYSTEM CASCON version is the updated window structure. The individual areas are now more clearly divided into development, board, execute and TCA windows. As a result, the Embedded JTAG Solutions software platform is even easier to use.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Process Validation

It is assumed that readers are familiar with manufacturing electronic circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC-J-STD-001 or IEC 61189-1; both are titled “Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies.” In October 2018, IPC-J-STD-001 Revision G was amended and released with a new Section 8 of the document titled “Cleaning.” The change was primarily the removal of a “cleanliness” level of 1.56 mg/square cm of NaCl equivalence. This small change has great significance in relation to how companies ensure the electrochemical reliability of their products.

Maximising Performance and Reliability of Automotive Electronics With Conformal Coatings

11/20/2019 | Phil Kinner, Electrolube
While the value of the electronic systems in a modern vehicle typically exceeds 20% of the total vehicle cost, many estimate that this value will exceed 35% within the next five years. With the increased adoption of electronic vehicles and the development of the internet of things (IoT)—which has brought us driverless cars like those being tested by Google in California and BMW on the roads of Bavaria—the future of this industry is starkly different from that of the 1970s when electronic fuel injection systems were first introduced to mainstream production.
