New Boundary-Scan Tools from JTAG
ActiveTest for cluster test generation.
Eindhoven, Netherlands — JTAG has released its development and hardware debug tool, JTAG ProVisionT V1.8, available on the company's latest tools CD (release 16). An important development tool for all boundary-scan applications, ProVision combines advanced automation with the level of control and precision that engineers need when creating test programs and in-system programming (ISP) routines for PLDs, FPGAs, flash memories, serial PROMs and other devices.

Enhancements to the latest version (V1.8) include: new pin-level ActiveTest, an interactive cluster test generator; enhanced NAND flash ISP program generator; "Buzz" quick and easy continuity test module for checking hidden open circuits; built-in test debug capabilities for Symphony-supported in-circuit testers and flying-probe testers; support for "private" and seldom-used JTAG instructions with the JFT (Python) script routines; multi-board, and scan bridge support for JFT (Python) script routines; and expanded ProVision model library, now containing models for more than 7,500 non-boundary-scan device families, covering more than 78,000 different devices.

As with previous releases, JTAG ProVision remains fully compatible with the prior "Classic" development tools as well as with all of the company's production systems. In addition, the latest version of JTAG ProVision is available free of charge to customers with valid maintenance contracts.
