JTAG Technologies is introducing at Apex 2010 in Las Vegas a new approach to supplying tools for debugging boards with a mix of free and paid for products targeted at different aspects of the debugging process.

JTAG Live is for electronics engineers and technicians to use in checking PCBs for basic continuity and correct operation. The family consists of three products, Buzz, Clip, and Script.

And to keep startup costs down, to connect to the board, JTAG Live is compatible with the popular JTAG programming cables from Altera and Xilinx, as well as with the twoport USB Explorer from JTAG Technologies.

Buzz provides the ability to check quickly (direct and indirect) connections between devices supporting boundaryscan while Clip offers ways to verify cluster logic using vectorbased cluster tests; and Script enables users to adopt a functional, deviceoriented test approach to take control of a design through onboard JTAG/boundaryscan compliant devices.

Buzz is available free of charge from the JTAG Live website. Clip and Script are also available for download, but for a nominal charge.

JTAG Technologies will also demonstrate - JTAG ProVisionT - Now With Added 'Buzz'

Class leading boundaryscan tool adds simple continuity test feature

We will also demonstrate an interim update to the 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 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."
