Flexible licensing gives global access to ASSET's MicroMaster JTAG functional test system

Single-user or network licenses enhance usability of MicroMaster’s CPU emulation test and debug capabilities

Richardson, TX (September 9, 2008) – With its new licensing arrangement, the capabilities of ASSET® InterTechs MicroMaster e-JTAG CPU emulation functional test and debug system can be flexibly deployed by global enterprises so that engineers have access to the systems capabilities anywhere and at any time. Moreover, MicroMaster can now be flexibly configured with the capabilities required at critical phases in a products life cycle, beginning with development, moving into manufacturing and culminating in field service and repair.

ASSET InterTech (www.asset-intertech.com) is the leading supplier of open tools for embedded instrumentation.

“By doing this, we are bringing MicroMasters capabilities in alignment with our ScanWorks® boundary scan structural test system,” said Larry Osborn, ASSETs MicroMaster product manager. “The two systems complement each other quite effectively and offer engineers greater test coverage when they are used in tandem. Now, the two systems share a licensing scheme that provides easier deployment of the two tools together and simpler deployment of MicroMaster on its own.”

The MicroMaster network license is available in two configurations, network campus and network worldwide. In addition, MicroMasters capabilities have been bundled into three different configurations to more closely match how the system is employed during various phases of a products life-cycle. Similarly to ScanWorks, MicroMaster is now available as a Development Station, a Manufacturing Station and as a Diagnostic and Repair Station.

Pricing and Availability

Single-user and network licenses for MicroMaster are available now. Depending on the configuration of the system, pricing starts at $4,997 for a single-user license.
