Testing with Boundary can help boost test coverage, accelerate design verification and debugging, and increase production-test efficiency for Mentor, a Siemens Business. Mentor PADS® users can now leverage XJTAG’s experience to maximise the power of boundary scan in their designs without leaving their favourite environment, using the new, free XJTAG® DFT Assistant for PADS.
Engineers can maximise the test coverage achievable with boundary scan by connecting JTAG compatible components into a JTAG chain. Using the JTAG chain, testing can be further extended to non JTAG compatible devices. PADS users can take advantage of XJTAG’s Design-for-Test (DFT) know-how, acquired through years working with clients and refining the XJTAG test development suite, by using the XJTAG DFT Assistant for PADS now included in their favourite design environment.
