XJTAG today released its second generation PXI boundary scan solution – a high speed interface that allows the integration of XJTAG boundary scan with PXI-based test systems.

The PXI XJLink2 enables users of PXI chassis, such as NI LabVIEW and LabWindows, to leverage the benefits of XJTAG's XJLink2 boundary scan controller from within their integrated PXI test platform.

The PXI XJLink2 is the fastest XJLink yet to be released by XJTAG, with the company reporting a 10-20% improvement on Flash memory programming time, and 40-50% on verify time.

“The PXI XJLink2 delivers significant improvements in functionality, speed and usability, allowing end users of different test platforms to exploit our hugely popular and cost effective boundary scan system,” said Simon Payne, XJTAG's CEO. “It is becoming a prerequisite to have some way of accessing the high pin count FPGAs. XJTAG's first PXI boundary scan module helped to meet that increasing demand from users of PXI-based test systems. Now our PXI XJLink2 provides not just the additional I/O features of the XJLink2, but a speed boost too.”

Those running National Instruments' LabVIEW software also benefit from a full set of virtual instruments (VIs) to interface to the XJTAG system.

XJTAG will be demonstrating the PXI XJlink2 at National Electronics Week (18-19 April), Stand 113. For more information please visit
