ASSET InterTech is a provider of advanced solutions for the test and measurement industry. Its ScanWorks® platform for embedded instruments is deployed by manufacturers to validate, test and debug their chips, circuit boards and entire systems. The software-based ScanWorks platform is a departure from older hardware-based test systems which are typically much more expensive and limited because their capabilities are hardwired. ScanWorks takes advantage of instruments that are embedded into today’s semiconductors to perform test routines that migrate with a system from early development, through manufacturing and into field support.
ASSET InterTech began as a business unit of Texas Instruments (TI). In July of 1995, the group that was working on boundary-scan (IEEE 1149.1 JTAG) test tools was spun off from TI and became an independent and privately held company. ASSET has evolved its ScanWorks product into a platform for embedded instruments featuring multiple validation, test and debug technologies.
Arium has supported various initiatives with Asset-Intertech that have resulted in mutual customer satisfaction surrounding production test applications.
