Support Package Enables On-board Test Control
Wed, 09/15/2010 - 7:14am
JTAG Technologies announced a support package for board-level and system designers looking to implement a convenient BIT (Built-In Test) access for boundary-scan testing and on-board device (re)programming. Existing USB to JTAG resources, which design engineers frequently now include on their boards, can be linked to high-level boundary-scan test software. In conjunction with FTDI Ltd, JTAG Technologies offers support option for the FTDI 2232D and the new FT2232H/4232H (Hi-speed USB 2.0) devices that allow direct connection from PC to target (UUT) via a standard USB cable. Anticipated users of this support option will include field repair technicians, who will be able to reduce their tool inventory, and design engineers looking to exercise JTAG circuitry during the hardware debug phase. The device support extends from the JTAG ProVision application development software through to its run-time, production solutions - as well as the 'BUZZ' and low-cost 'CLIP' and 'SCRIPT' JTAG Live modules.
