Cerritos, Calif. - Corelis, Inc., has launched two new product bundles for stand-alone in-system programming environments, the ISP-TAFP and ISP-JTAG. The ISP-TAFP (Target Assisted Flash Programmer) is capable of performing CPU-assisted programming by taking control of a processor's JTAG port. It includes all required hardware and software to program Flash and SEEPROM devices that share bus architecture with a JTAG compatible processor. The bundle also includes a license for a single processor family, chosen by the user.
Supported processor manufacturers include AMCC, ARM, Atmel, Broadcom, Freescale, IBM, Marvell, MIPS, PMC, RMI, Samsung, ST Microelectronics, TI, as well as soft processors for Altera, Xilinx, and other FPGA vendors.
ISP-JTAG allows programming of Flash and SEEPROM devices that interface directly with IEEE-1149.1 compliant devices. ISP-JTAG is also useful for programming CPLD and FPGA devices via their JTAG ports. In addition to including all the required programming hardware and software, the ISP-JTAG bundle includes Flash vector generation services for the specific device to be programmed providing a full turn-key solution.
ScanExpress Programmer is the main software tool used for in-system programming of non-volatile memory devices utilizing serial protocols such as SPI, IC, and JTAG. The tool can program both NOR and NAND Flash memory devices on a board with a working JTAG scan-chain where the pins on the memory device are accessible through the boundary-scan component's I/O pins. Furthermore, the tool can access memory devices connected to a CPU using the CPU's JTAG emulation capabilities allowing programming at the highest theoretical speeds.
The ISP-TAFP bundle is priced at US $1,500. The ISP-JTAG bundle is priced at US $3,000.
