Corelis JTAG Tools Advance Manufacturing Test for Red Lion Controls

Complete ScanExpress JTAG/boundary-scan system reduces cost and improves production test time.

Cerritos, CA, October 21, 2013 – Corelis, Inc., the leading supplier of high-performance boundary-scan test and measurement tools, announced the successful deployment of Corelis ScanExpress tools at Red Lion Controls for testing Human Machine Interface (HMI) products. The combination of ScanExpress boundary-scan and JTAG Embedded Test (JET) tools enabled rapid development of fast, non-intrusive structural and early functional tests for Red Lion’s complex embedded systems.

Through the implementation of Corelis’ industry-standard ScanExpress development and test solution early in the product development process, Red Lion controls leveraged the advanced diagnostic capabilities to identify a hard-to-find fault during prototype development. The same tests used for prototype verification were then carried over and extended into production. The system was automated by integrating Corelis’ application programming interface (API) into Red Lion’s existing test executive system.

“The integration of boundary-scan and JET tests into Red Lion’s existing test processes provided immediate value in Red Lion’s manufacturing processes,” explained Ryan Jones, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at Corelis. “JET not only significantly improves in-system-programming (ISP) speed, but it also allows for system functional tests to be moved earlier in the test process without the need for functional boot code.”
