XJTAG Professional Development System unveiled at Electronica
Nov 15, 2006
XJTAG a supplier of boundary scan development tools, has unveiled its XJTAG Professional development system and announced a plethora of enhancements to its award-winning IEEE 1149.1 compliant system - all designed to enable engineers to significantly reduce the time and cost of board development and prototyping.
The XJTAG Professional system brings together all the elements within XJTAG's extensive suite of development tools to provide engineers with an out-of-the-boxâ€š solution for debugging and testing complex printed circuits featuring high pin count ball grid array (BGA) devices, which cannot be tested by traditional methods such as flying probes, logic analyzers, oscilloscopes and X-ray systems. XJTAG Professional includes XJAnalyser, XJEase, XJRunner, XJLink, XJDemo and the new XJIO board.
"The XJTAG system is designed by engineers for engineers and provides a comprehensive set of tools to test, debug and program complex printed circuits containing BGA devices," said Simon Payne, CEO of XJTAG. "With the Professional system and the new features, board developers will be able to get their circuits up and running in hours as opposed to days/weeks with other systems."
Test coverage, speed of fault detection and overall usability has been greatly enhanced in the latest version of XJTAG. The interconnect test is now lightning fast and can exercise 5,000 nets in less than a second due to improvements to the sophisticated and mathematically-proven algorithms. It can also identify a higher proportion of faults and, importantly, accurately report their locations.
The XJTAG system claims to reduce the time and cost of board development and prototyping by facilitating early test development, early design validation of CAD netlists, fast generation of highly functional tests and test re-use across circuits that utilise the same devices.
Pricing for the XJTAG system ranges from Â£3,500 to Â£9,900.
