SYNTEST REVEALS ITS VISION FOR ELECTRONIC DESIGN DEBUGGING, PREVIEWS ITS FIRST JTAG-BASED DEBUG AND VISUALATION SYSTEM AT THE INTERNATIONAL TEST CONFERENCE
TurboDebug-PCB detects, locates and diagnoses interconnect faults on printed circuit boards; Uses a PC with a PCI interface and DFT software to improve board test; Annotates debug results on design schematics
Baltimore, Maryland, October 30, 2001 - International Test Conference --SynTest Technologies, Inc. of Sunnyvale, California announced that the Company is entering the test and debug market for electronic design and that a new family of products will reduce the cost of test and debug. The first product in SynTest's debug family-- TurboDebug-PCB -- is being previewed and demonstrated this week at The International Test Conference here at booth # 2420.
TurboDebug-PCB is a PC-based system running on the Linux OS that includes software and hardware to help debug test problems on prototype printed circuit boards (PCBs) prior to expensive, time-consuming full production testing. TurboDebug-PCB detects, diagnoses and locates interconnect (wiring) faults on PCBs populated by one or more IC or SoC.
Ravi Apte, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at SynTest, noted, "We are all about reducing the cost of test, and we are positioning ourselves as a player in the test and debug market with our first product--a board test and debug product that is available for beta testing now. Next year, we plan to announce follow-on products that will improve board as well as IC and SoC test and debug prior to full production testing."
Apte added, "Our
new product family is possible now, since the JTAG interface is widely
