Boundary scan solution makes show debut in Anaheim
A broad line of software and hardware tools including new boundary scan solutions will be showcased by JTAG Technologies at AUTOTESTCON in Anaheim ( September 12-15). The JT 2147/VPC is a signal conditional module that allows ‘ideal world’ connections from JTAG Technologies PXI and PXIe DataBlasters to the Virginia Panel (VPC) connection system.
Based on the QuadPod architecture from JTAG Technologies, the module has been specifically designed for connection into G20x or G14x 192 pin ‘QuadraPaddle’ connectors and is also compatible with the VPC ‘pull thru’ system.
By integrating the JT 2147/VPC, test system builders will greatly simplify their wiring task and, at the same time, retain the excellent signal integrity assured by the QuadPod’s active interface.
The JT2147/VPC features four independent JTAG Test Access Ports (TAPs) along with 16 static DIO channels and 64 dynamic DIO channels.
Each TAP can be programmed to operate through a range of voltage levels to suit various logic families.
Also on parade will be the JTAG/boundary-scan hardware interface product compatible with the MAC-Panel 'Scout' mass interconnect system.
The JT 2147/DAK is a signal conditioning module that allows seamless connections from JTAG Technologies PXI DataBlaster to the Scout's connection system. Also based on the QuadPod architecture, this modulehas been designed in the MAC Panel 'Direct Access Kit' (DAK) form factor.
It enables test system builders to simplify their wiring tasks and, at the same time, retain the signal integrity assured by the QuadPod's active interface.
JTAG TapCommunicator facilitates remote execution and diagnostics of boundary-scan applications, regardless of distance or environmental difficulties.
The off-the-shelf system is based on a one gigabit Ethernet connection (IEEE Std 802.3z) providing virtually unlimited range between the controller and target.
However, the TapSpacer technology upon which TapCommunicator is based allows any communication link to be used.
