Corelis announced the ISP-TAFP and ISP-JTAG product bundles for stand-alone in-system programming environments. The bundles are based on the existing ScanExpress family of products. The new bundles provide a lower-risk programming solution by reducing resource investment in addition to providing high-end capabilities to budget conscious engineers. ScanExpress Programmer is a software tool used for in-system programming of non-volatile memory devices utilizing serial protocols such as SPI, I²C, and JTAG.
ISP-TAFP is capable of performing CPU assisted programming by taking control of a processor’s JTAG port. The ISP-TAFP bundle 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. The ISP-TAFP bundle is priced at US $1,500.
ISP-JTAG enables 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. The ISP-JTAG bundle is priced at US $3,000.
