JTAG Integrated with PCB Design Tools Broadens Capabilities

Many engineers think that JTAG is simply an interface for inserting breakpoints to debug the software running on a CPU. It may surprise them to learn that JTAG is included in many integrated devices that do not have a debug interface. While this includes FPGAs and CPUs, it also extends to memory, communication interfaces and even general logic devices.

JTAG is so prevalent that in the majority of designs there will be at least one JTAG device on a board, and even a single JTAG-compliant device can be enough to make significant test coverage possible. Boundary scan is not limited to testing JTAG-enabled devices, however …

Cadence intègre XJTAG DFT Assistant dans OrCAD Capture

San Jose, Californie, le 8 novembre 2016 – Cadence Design Systems (NASDAQ: CDNS), leader mondial de l’innovation en conception électronique, annonce que sa solution OrCAD Capture intègre à présent l’outil XJTAG DFT Assistant, une interface simple d’emploi qui augmente de façon significative les possibilités de conception en vue du test (Design for Test — DFT) et du débogage de son outil de capture schématique et de conception de circuits imprimés.

Développée par XJTAG, fournisseur d’outils logiciels et matériels « boundary-scan », l’interface XJTAG DFT Assistant permet de détecter et de corriger les erreurs JTAG sur les cartes électroniques au stade de la conception, c’est-à-dire avant l’entrée en production. Cette intervention effectuée en amont évite de procéder à des coûteuses reprises, ainsi que de retarder les projets en cours.
