XJTAG Boundary Scan — Trial FAQ
To help you evaluate XJTAG software and hardware boundary scan products for debugging, testing and device programming, we offer a 30-day trial period, with no obligation to purchase.
Please complete the request form and we will be in contact with you shortly to discuss your end application and the evaluation process. We will then work with you to supply you with an XJTAG system when is most convenient for you.
Availability and use
When will the product trial be available?
Depending on your timescales, we can target the trial to start when you are ready, any time from next day to next quarter. If you are looking to take advantage of the test setup, then it's good to plan ahead so we can schedule in the work.
Are there any limitations in the trial version?
The tools provided for evaluation are fully functional, so all features of the products are available for you to try out.
If requested, XJTAG will set up its test system and one development project on your own electronics when you take your trial.
Can I have the trial only, without the test setup?
If I want a test setup with my trial, what do I need to supply?
To set up your board, we will require the following (under Non-Disclosure Agreement):
- Circuit diagrams for the board as a PDF that can be searched.
- Netlist(s). We support over 60 netlist formats (including RINF, EDIF, Protel, PADS-PCB and any ASCII netlists)
- Details (including BSDL files) of custom JTAG-enabled parts fitted on the boards (if any).
Ideally, we prefer to get the tests up and running on your board. If you would like us to complete this last stage, we will also need access to a board.
Get the most out of your trial
What resources are available to help me evaluate the system?
The XJTAG system comes complete with an XJDemo board and interactive tutorials to get you started with developing your first test system with XJTAG.
You will have access to XJTAG's device test libraries and latest S/W upgrades, during your evaluation period.
Can I get technical support or help for my trial version?
We are proud of our support and as with all aspects of the tools, during the evaluation, we encourage you to try it. We provide full technical support by telephone, email and web meeting, to help with the set up or troubleshoot any issues.
For additional help, we recommend searching the Knowledge Base, to find focused answers to specific questions.
Windows XP ® (service pack 3 or higher), Windows Vista ® or Windows 7 ®.
Converting your trial
How do I convert to a purchased product?
If you already have the XJTAG Development System for evaluation, you can continue using the product without interruption by purchasing it. Simply contact your XJTAG distributor to make a purchase to have your hardware licence extended, and you can continue using XJTAG without reinstalling the software.
I have an earlier trial version. Can I convert it to the latest version?
If XJTAG has released new versions of its products since your trial and you are now ready to purchase, you will have access to download the latest version of the software.
What if I want to purchase only specific products, but not the full system?
XJTAG trials allow you to evaluate all of the tools that are part of the XJTAG Standard Development System, but you can certainly buy individual products that best match your business needs.
