JTAG ProVisionT - Now With Added 'Buzz'

Class leading boundary-scan tool adds simple continuity test feature

(PresseBox) (Eindhoven, The Netherlands, ) JTAG Technologies announces today an interim update to it's renowned ProVision boundaryscan development toolssuite. Service Pack One for CD release 15 (CD15-SP1) is now available for download for licensed users with a current support contract from and includes the new free continuity test module 'Buzz'.

JTAG ProVision first released in 2006 uses a unique project database structure, automatically analysing the boundaryscan and nonboundaryscan elements of a design to create rapidly a full set of tests and insystem programming applications.

The new Buzz module allows a user, with minimal design information, to quickly check the continuity between two or more pins. Using an intuitive user interface the user can quickly drag and drop pins into a continuity test panel within the user interface and 'Buzzout' a connection as you might traditionally do with a DMM. A new 'Watch' feature uses the JTAG SAMPLE instruction to monitor asynchronously the activity of a selected pin without disturbing the operation of the UUT.

"JTAG ProVision has dramatically changed the way users work with boundaryscan since its launch" said Peter van den Eijnden, managing director of JTAG Technologies. "Adding the Buzz feature gives users a very quick method to check out up to 10 pin to pin connections in one hit without the hurdles that are sometimes encountered when importing design data."

Electronics designer and test engineers without JTAG ProVision can also experience the benefits of Buzz by downloading the free version from

Also featuring on the CD15 SP1 is the addition of over 950 new or revised device models for non-JTAG/boundaryscan parts in the ProVision *.model format.
