CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND –
XJTAG is running a free boundary scan training workshop at the UK's Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry, 12 June 2013.
The free workshop aims to provide engineers with an introduction to boundary scan and to show how this innovative debug, test and programming process can be used throughout the product life cycle.
The hands-on workshop will be of interest to engineers in design, development, test and production who will receive a comprehensive introduction to boundary scan. XJTAG's workshop leaders will explain how boundary scan can be used from start to finish both to improve designs and reduce respins and to enhance test coverage, fault diagnosis and production yields on complex BGA-populated circuits.
"XJTAG's free workshops have been so popular that we have decided to take them around the UK" says Simon Payne, CEO XJTAG. "Holding the first of a series of boundary scan workshops at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry was a natural choice as it is focused on providing new and innovative processes and technologies."
The free workshops will give an overview of the IEEE 1149.x standard, demonstrate how to communicate with the JTAG chain and how to interact with JTAG devices such as FPGAs. They will provide an introduction to board testing using the JTAG chain, explain how to describe a circuit to enable JTAG testing and how to run an infrastructure connection test. Finally, the workshop leaders will outline how to test non-JTAG elements of a board design using boundary scan.
The XJTAG development system is a cost-effective solution for debugging, testing and programming electronic printed circuit boards and systems throughout the product lifecycle. XJTAG reduces the time and cost of board development by allowing early creation of reconfigurable test scripts that can be used from design validation through prototype debugging and on into manufacturing.
XJTAG is used across a variety of sectors by market-leading companies (designers, developers, OEMs and contract manufacturers) including, among others, Aeroflex, ARM, Curtiss-Wright, Imagination Technology, Micron, and Thales.
Places are limited so engineers should book early. Register at www.xjtag.com/workshop.php.
Places are subject to availability and at the discretion of XJTAG.
