GOEPEL electronic introduces the worldwide smallest JTAG/Boundary Scan Controller
GOEPEL electronic introduces PicoTAP, the world’s smallest JTAG/Boundary Scan Controller with single TAP interface. The new and extremely handy solution (matchbox size) has been designed for simple Boundary Scan test and programming tasks and for cost-critical applications throughout the entire product life cycle. If users want to upgrade their Boundary Scan applications at a later point in time, programs generated with PicoTAP are cross compatible to all controllers from GOEPEL electronics, such as the SCANBOOSTER® series or the high-performance platform SCANFLEX.
The low cost JTAG/Boundary Scan Controller is controlled by a USB 2.0 interface and doesn’t require any additional voltage supply, making its utilisation very handy and efficient. PicoTAP provides a preconfigured plug-in TAP (Test Access Port), and therefore can be directly plugged to the assembly, i.e. additional cable adaption’s are omitted. PicoTAP gains further flexibility by a 5V auxiliary supply voltage switchable at the TAP interface.
