Adding XJTAG Boundary Scan Tests into TestStand

XJTAG integration into NI TestStand

XJIntegration allows test executives such as National Instruments TestStand™ to call XJTAG boundary scan tests. Example sequence files that demonstrate how to use XJRunner Integration and XJAnalyser Integration in .NET modules are provided as part of the XJTAG installation.

One example shows a simple LED test. It illustrates how to load a project, initialise an XJLink JTAG controller, and run a test selected from the project’s test list. It also demonstrates accepting user-input and how to check if a test has passed.

The other example sequence demonstrates the use of XJAnalyser Integration to take control of specific pins on a JTAG device. It shows how to get an object for the required pin, how to start the chain running, and how to set the pin high or low or to make it continually change state so that the signal can easily be traced across a PCB with an oscilloscope.

Engineers can take the example modules for use in their own code. The examples can be found in folders below XJIntegration .NET Examples, which is in the XJTAG Shared Files folder. Search the Help System for “Directory Structure” for assistance in locating it.
