Functional Test Technology Partners: Geotest and JTAG Technologies announce integrated system

Stevensville, MD.  (June 22, 2009) – Following a successful series of JTAG / Functional test seminars in Europe and the United States, Geotest - Marvin Test Systems and JTAG Technologies are pleased to announce a new Technology Partnership.  Under the partnership, Geotest now offers pre-configured PXI test systems including the JTAG Technologies’ high-performance JT 37x7/PXI boundary-scan controller.   Included with the boundary scan test option is JTAG Technologies’ high-level driver suite for Geotest’s ATEasy software which facilitates integrating boundary-scan applications as part of an overall functional test strategy.

The preconfigured Geotest Basic Automated Test System (GBATS) offers functional and structural test methods in a compact PXI-based platform as well as providing high-throughput in-system programming for flash memories and programmable logic devices.  
James Stanbridge, JTAG Technologies’ Sales Manager in UK, commented, “We’re very pleased to have worked with Geotest in offering the test community such a practical and beneficial system.  During the recent seminars, we’ve had a good close-up view of customer needs and the combined capability we offer with Geotest should be right on target.”

Mike Dewey, Geotest’s Senior Marketing Product Manager, added, “Combining functional and boundary scan test methods is a test strategy that we see more and more users adopting. Our partnership with JTAG Technologies is a natural fit for providing customers with solutions that meet these demands and address the need for test coverage and throughput, particularly for boards with limited test access.”

The GBATS TS-720 system with the JT controller is available in 6-8 weeks. JTAG Technologies’ PIP/ATEasy software integration package is available immediately and is priced at $6250.
