Boot testing would. 

The automatic testing framework Stepan built a few years ago - I'd love to
get a few boards set up for that. I have some boards lying around that could
be used for that. My main problem is cost: dedicating an artec dongle + plcc
adapter runs about $350 per board... And then you still need a remote power
toggle device (can be had for cheap-ish if you look around a bit) and some
sort of serial capture device (or just another computer if it's one or a few
