On-board Test Control

JTAG Technologies (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) offers a new support package for board-level and system designers looking to implement a convenient BIT (Built-In Test) access for boundary-scan testing and on-board device (re)programming. In conjunction with FTDI Ltd (Glasgow, UK), JTAG Technologies offers a support option for the FTDI 2232D and FT2232H/4232H (Hi-speed USB 2.0) devices that allow direct connection from PC to target (UUT) via a standard USB cable. Anticipated users of this support option will include field repair technicians, who will be able to reduce their tool inventory, and design engineers looking to exercise JTAG circuitry during the hardware debug phase.

Graphical Integrated Development Environment

AdaCore (Paris, France) has released GNAT Programming Studio (GPS) 5.0. This version of AdaCore‚'s graphical Integrated Development Environment (IDE) offers enhanced support for C and C++, more powerful source editing, simpler use, and integration of GNATstack (a static analysis tool that determines a program‚'s maximum stack requirements). GPS is provided with GNAT Pro on most platforms, for both native and embedded software development. GPS‚'s multi-language support will benefit GNAT Pro customers whose applications include C or C++ as well as Ada. Among the enhancements are more accurate and complete source navigation using a new cross reference engine and better outlining and indentation.

Thermal Design 3D CFD Software

Mentor Graphics Corporation (Wilsonville, OR) offers the next generation of its FloTHERM® 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for electronics cooling applications. FloTHERM allows engineers to implement virtual prototypes to simulate airflow, temperature, and heat transfer in electronic systems. The patent-pending technology in the FloTHERM v.9 software provides Bottleneck (Bn) and Shortcut (Sc) fields so that engineers can identify where heat flow congestion occurs in the electronic design and why. It also identifies thermal shortcuts to quickly and efficiently resolve the design problem. The Bn and the Sc fields elevate the use of simulation from an observation tool that identifies heat management problems, to an effective thermal design problem-solving tool that suggests potential solutions to the designer.
