ASSET InterTech published a new eBook. The publication explains how to test DDR memory with non-intrusive JTAG or boundary-scan (IEEE 1149.1) methods. The title of the paper is Testing DDR3 Memory Boundary Scan JTAG. The paper was written by Kent Zetterberg, product manager, ASSET InterTech.
ASSET InterTech published an ebook about JTAG. The article describes how the structural test methodology based on the IEEE 1149.1 boundary scan standard can apply functional tests to I2C and SPI system monitors during prototype board bring-up and later during production of the circuit board. The title of the technical paper is: Functional Test on I2C and SPI System Monitors with JTAG.
The Nexus 5001 Forum has ratified the IEEE-ISTO 5001-2012 Standard (Nexus 5001) for a Global Embedded Processor Debug Interface. The revised standard includes support for two new interfaces: IEEE Std. 1149.7 (JTAG) and the Nexus trace over a high-speed Xilinx Aurora SerDes (Serializers/Deserializers) interface. The standard was developed by the Nexus Forum, which is an industry group of IC companies, systems manufacturers and design automation companies.
ASSET® InterTech, the leading supplier of open tools for embedded instrumentation, has partnered with Flextronics, a leading electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, to accelerate the adoption of the new IEEE P1687 Internal JTAG (IJTAG) standard. Once it is ratified next year, the IEEE P1687 IJTAG standard will specify an industry-accepted open architecture and interfacing mechanisms for instrumentation that is embedded into semiconductor chips, simplifying the use of these embedded instruments to validate, test and debug chips, circuit boards and systems.
IEEE, the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology, announced the ratification of IEEE 1149.7 test and debug standard. The new standard expands and improves upon IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG) functionality and is designed to maximize space and cost-savings while maintaining previously made industry investments.
ASSET® InterTech, the leading supplier of open tools for embedded instrumentation, and SiliconAid Solutions, Austin, TX., have formed a strategic relationship whereby ASSET will integrate its first integrated circuit (IC) test tool into the ScanWorks® platform for embedded instrumentation and resell SiliconAid’s insertion and verification tools that support the emerging IEEE P1687 Internal JTAG (IJTAG) standard. SiliconAid is a supplier of world class chip verification and debug tools that support the IEEE 1149.1 Boundary-Scan Standard, which is commonly referred to as JTAG after the Joint Test Action Group which initiated development of the standard.
