Multi-function Boundary-scan Testers Cover All Bases
The first in the series - JT 5705/USB - is supplied as desk-top instrument, primarily aimed at hardware validation applications in design, small-scale production test and in some cases field service and repair. The JT 5705/USB features two 15 MHz TAPs and 64 I/O's available through 0.1" IDC connectors. 56 of the I/O channels are always digital, 16 of which also feature a frequency function. The remaining 8 channels can be used as either digital I/O or analog I/O. The unit also contains a user programmable FPGA facilitating application specific digital I/O options. Via the built-in 'Multi-Sync' feature several JT 5705/USBs can be combined into a single JTAG controller providing multiple TAPs and hundreds of I/Os.
The second model in this new range is the larger JT 5705/RMI, a 1U high 19" rack-mountable instrument for use in systems or as a bench-top tester. This unit features four 15 MHz TAPs and 4 groups of 64 mixed-signal I/O channels providing a total of 256 I/O's available through 0.1" IDC connectors. As before, within each 64 channels group, 56 channels are permanently digital with 16 available as frequency inputs. The other 8 channels of each group can be individually programmed as digital I/O or analog I/O channel. Furthermore the JT 5705/RMI features a total of 4 user programmable FPGA's for creating application specific digital I/O options.
The I/O capabilities as provided by the JT 5705/USB are also available in a separate I/O module, the JT 5112 Mixed-signal I/O scan module, or MIOS. The MIOS module can be used in combination with existing JTAG Technologies boundary-scan controllers such as JT 3705, JT 3710 and JT 37x7 adding analog I/O capabilities to those controllers.
Peter van den Eijnden, MD states: 'We received quite some market feedback on how the next generation of JTAG/boundary-scan testers should look and increasingly we have been asked to provide analog stimulus and measurements alongside more traditional digital I/O systems. The new JT 5705s provides all this and more in really convenient and low-cost package'.
As the boundary-scan market expands beyond the traditional high-density digital targets seen in Mil/Aero and Telecoms applications, so the test equipment must evolve to match. As well as supporting multiple JTAG (IEEE 1149.x) compatible TAPs with programmable thresholds the units have extensive mixed-signal I/O capability with a programmable measure and stimulus range of ±16V or 0-32V for the analog channels.
'The Automotive electronics sector is one area where we expect to see a high demand for this type of product. A great many ECUs require an analog/sensor stimulus which registers back to a microprocessor where the values can be checked using boundary-scan or JTAG emulative test methods - as supported by JTAG Technologies CoreCommander tools' added van den Eijnden.
Use of the FPGA kernel allows user to develop their own digital I/O options such as CAN bus, counter/timer or high-speed memory access. IP code from sharing sites such as Open Cores can be implemented in the FPGA fabric and accessed via JTAG Technologies' own CoreCommander FPGA translator module.
