JT 2155 training boardMunich, 15th November 2011, (productronica stand A1.458). JTAG Technologies announces a quantum step in training and demonstration equipment for real-world boundary-scan testing, device programming and related activities.

In co-operation with the Benelux regional representative of Altium - Transfer BV - and hardware development consultancy – DsignWorx BV - the new JT 2155 training board has been devised to demonstrate all the latest features and test techniques available to users of JTAG Technologies’ ProVision & JTAGLive application development systems. For Altium users the design serves as an example of how to adapt the feature-rich Nano board into a realistic custom design.
Key features of the JT 2155 are:

• ARM 7TDMI Core NXP processor
• Altera Cyclone 3 FPGA
• DDR2 memory block
• Serial I2C memory
• Analog to Digital Converter
• Accelerometer
• Touch screen controller

JTAG Technologies MD, Peter van den Eijnden, states ‘ the new training board has been built to allow us to show exactly what JTAG/boundary-scan is capable of in the second decade of the 21st century. Traditional IEEE Std. 1149.1 boundary-scan testing is well known, but many of our leading edge customers need to both learn about and see other JTAG applications. For example, some customers have been requesting demonstrations of JTAG testing using the processor’s core, while others have sought to embed at-speed ‘BIST engines’ into FPGA’s. To profile these features you need a first class hardware platform as provided by the JT 2155’.
