Boundary Scan Techniques for Test Coverage Improvement

When discussing the JTAG protocol, most engineers immediately think of In-System Programming procedures. Indeed, there are numerous Microcontrollers (or FPGAs, CPLDs) that employ this protocol when it comes to their programming and such applications are widely spread throughout the industry. The fact is that this protocol can be also used for various other purposes which can strengthen your testing techniques. Boundary Scan Testing (sometimes called JTAG testing) methods can significantly help you improve the Test Coverage. This paper presents dedicated hardware and software tools which are focused on performing Boundary Scan Testing (BST). Furthermore, some basic principles of the 1149.1 standard are described.
