Escape Communications Selects Flynn Systems' OnTAP Embedded JTAG Solution
Source: Flynn Systems
Escape Communications of Torrance, CA (www.escapecom.com), a trusted provider of point-to-point microwave radio Indoor Units (IDUs) for commercial telecommunications OEMs and custom advanced signal processing designs for major space and defense contractors, sought to improve their physical user interface for testing, especially during the manufacturing process. Having already developed a test executive with an intuitive GUI, Escape then needed to eliminate proprietary third party test fixtures, some of which were outdated and unreliable, and integrate reliable, easy to use, and cost-effective test capabilities into their new Automated Test Board (ATB) design. Escape Communications asked Flynn Systems to help them tackle the challenge of embedding boundary scan tests into their ATB design through the use of readily available, off-the-shelf firmware in order to minimize customization and engineering development costs.
