Digitaltest & JTAG Combine for PCB Test
Digitaltest MTS300 now is equipped for JTAG testing.
Stutensee, Germany — Digitaltest GmbH and JTAG Technologies, Eindhoven, Netherlands, have integrated their test methods within the Digitaltest MTS series of in-circuit test systems. As a result, electronics designers and manufacturers will benefit from even greater test coverage and programmability of complex PCBs, all within a single process step.

According to the company, Digitaltest's Sigma "combinational" test system is already among the most versatile and advanced board testers on the market with comprehensive shorts/opens, analog, power-up, serial bus (I2C CAN), and "vectorless", testing options. DSP-based analog measurements allow testing for shorts at a rate of 1000 points per second. With integrated boundary-scan capabilities — powered by JTAG Technologies — users can now further enhance their high-precision testing capabilities. Test development and deployment times are minimized, test coverage is maximized, while fixture complexity can be reduced.

The JTAG Technologies boundary-scan option provides access to both test features and high throughput in-system programming (ISP) via the dedicated JT 3727/DPC, a four TAP IEEE 1149.x hardware controller developed in co-operation with Digitaltest.

ISP support currently covers NOR, NAND and serial flash parts plus many families of micros with embedded flash (see SCIP data) as well as IEEE Std 1532 CPLD and legacy PLDs.
