In 1995, ASSET InterTech was spun off from Texas Instruments at a time in the electronics industry when prototype validation and debug, as well as manufacturing test, were changing drastically. Large and expensive external test equipment was giving way to software-based methods embedded in chips and on boards.
Today, with more than 10,000 users worldwide, ASSET’s two platforms – the ScanWorks® platform for hardware validation and test, and the SourcePoint™ platform for software debug and trace – provide real insight from code to silicon to engineers in design and manufacturing who are working on the most advanced Intel® and ARM® designs.
Vision and Mission of Asset InterTech, Inc.
Over the last decade, the speed and complexity of multi-core systems has increased dramatically. At the same time, more applications have demanded lower and lower power consumption, leaving little margin for error in system design and manufacturing. In addition, software, firmware and hardware have become increasingly interdependent. Each must be debugged within the context of the others. And that’s why the vision for the SourcePoint and ScanWorks platforms calls for them to be brought closer together, creating a seamless validation, test and debug environment across hardware and software. That’s real insight into root causes.
Our mission doesn’t end with best-in-class tools. It begins there and ends in long-lasting relationships with users. The market research firm Frost & Sullivan recently recognized this and honored ASSET with a Value Leadership award.
What We Do at Asset InterTech, Inc.
ASSET InterTech is the leading supplier of open tools for embedded instrumentation to engineers doing design validation, test and debug.
The ScanWorks platform for embedded instruments provides automation, access and analysis tools in one environment. Users can quickly and easily validate and test semiconductors, circuit boards or entire systems during every phase of a product’s lifecycle, including design, manufacturing/repair and field maintenance.
The ScanWorks platform for non-intrusive board test (NBT) technologies, such as boundary-scan test, processor-controlled test (PCT) and built-in self test (BIST), helps engineers improve the quality of their systems by solving limited access problems.
ScanWorks Embedded Diagnostics helps designers and field support technicians debug intermittent, irreproducible software and hardware defects in the lab and in the field which are often the source of costly NTFs and customer dissatisfaction. This allows companies to focus on continuous uptime, product differentiation, and high levels of customer service.
