Advance Tech Communications, based in Malaysia, introduced its M.A.G.I.C.Shiv1 Mobile Advanced Global Integrated Communicator at the 2008 CES Show in Las Vegas. Regarded by some mobile operators as the first truly convergent multimedia devices, M.A.G.I.C.Shiv1 combines a powerful laptop computer and mobile phone within a handheld form factor, including features such as high-definition audio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. It has two independent touchscreens for smartphone/PDA and laptop-PC functions, as well as two digital cameras to support functions such as multimedia messaging, webcam or teleconferencing in the smartphone or laptop modes.
We chose XJTAG over other systems for its many features making test development faster and easier. Getting started is quick and easy. XJTAG’s embedded DFT feature identifies untested pins and nets with one click. Programming boundary scan tests is also intuitive, using the XJEase language. We solved most testability challenges before committing to hardware, and were ready with well-developed tests as soon as the first prototypes were available.
As a platform-independent test solution enabling easy re-use of device tests, XJTAG will play a central role in our test strategies for future advanced products.
