Cray has selected Asset Intertech’s Scanworks platform for embedded instrumentation as the basis for embedded test solutions critical to Cray’s next-generation supercomputers.

Asset will deliver embedded test logic intellectual property (IP) that will support high reliability and remote diagnostics in Cray’s supercomputers.

‘Asset’s Scanworks platform provides a rich set of functionality for embedded diagnostics,’ said Peg Williams, senior vice-president of research and development at Cray.

‘Scanworks-based solutions will enable Cray’s next-generation product development to maintain a focus on quality and reliability, while continuing to push the envelope in scalability,’ she added.

Scanworks embedded IP provides fault isolation in high-availability, mission-critical systems in the computer, telecom, military, aerospace and storage markets.

Its capabilities include single and multi-processor bring up, remote test, kernel dump, hung system debug and breakpoints.

This functionality can be critical for installation and commissioning, local and remote testing and programming, and reducing ‘No Trouble Found’ (NTF) reports from the field.

Asset has enhanced its Scanworks platform with embedded instrumentation capabilities such as processor-controlled test (PCT) and tools for Intel IBIST (interconnect built-in self test), a technology that Intel and other companies are embedding into next-generation chips and chipsets.
