Integration of LogicVision's ET4.0 Debug / Diagnostics and Corelis' Scan Plus Boundary Scan Test System Enables Lower Cost of Debug and Manufacturing Test
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 27, 2002-- LogicVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:LGVN - news), a leading provider of embedded test IP for integrated circuits and systems, and Corelis Inc., a leading provider of IEEE-1149.1 boundary-scan JTAG testing, In-System Programming and emulation tools, announced today the expansion of their partnership to integrate LogicVision's Embedded Test Solution for board and diagnostic technology with Corelis Scan Plus Boundary Scan Test System. This new capability allows Corelis' low cost Test System full flexibility to access and control LogicVision's debug and diagnostics technology for stand alone ICs, integrated on-board or in-system.
The LogicVision Ready Program(TM) (LV Ready) was created to enable partner companies to provide full interoperability with LogicVision's Embedded Test technology and ensure seamless fit with customers' current design, manufacturing and product environments. Already well established in the IC manufacturing test market with membership including Teradyne, Advantest, Credence, LTX, SZ, Nextest and 3MTS, LogicVision is now extending the LV Ready Partnership Program to the board and system test and diagnostic space.
This new partnership utilizes LogicVision's recently released Embedded Test 4.0 - IC Debug feature. Originally developed to work with traditional and low cost IC testers, access and control is now being extended through the Corelis Scan Plus Test System to the 1149.1 IC and board test access space. LogicVision's Embedded Test technology enables customers to integrate intelligent "micro-testers" into the IC during design, which are later accessed and controlled during IC and board level development and test to reduce time-to-market and operational costs.
"The partnership with Corelis is an exciting step for LogicVision, allowing us to strategically enter an important new market area," said Rodger Sykes, LogicVision's vice president of System Business. "Combining our recently released chip and board level diagnostic technology with Corelis' leading edge 1149.1 test systems enables our customers to economically achieve unprecedented capability and speed of debug. We believe this will significantly reduce both IC manufacturing time to market, as well as board level development and manufacturing cost."
"We are very pleased to join the ranks of LogicVision's premier LV Ready Partnership Program, especially leading the expansion of the program into the board and system market. Our integrated capabilities will provide new and existing customers simplified access and control for on-board go/no-go chip test, as well as real time at-speed debug and diagnostics," said Menachem Blasberg, president and CEO of Corelis. "Many customers were asking us to extend our board and system test to include LogicVision's Embedded Test technology, therefore we are very excited to offer this invaluable capability."
