JTAG Technologies Targets Functional Testers
PXI interfaces for boundary scan.
Baltimore, MD — JTAG Technologies has released a new JTAG/boundary-scan hardware interface product that is compatible with the MAC-Panel "Scout" mass interconnect system. The JT 2147/DAK is a signal conditioning module that allows seamless connections from JTAG Technologies PXI DataBlaster to the Scout's connection system.

Based on the company's highly successful QuadPod architecture, the new module has been specifically designed in the MAC Panel "Direct Access Kit" (DAK) form factor. By using the JT 2147/DAK, test system builders will greatly simplify their wiring tasks and, at the same time, retain the excellent signal integrity assured by the QuadPod's active interface.

The new product has four independent JTAG Test Access Ports (TAPs) along with 16 user-assigned Digital I/O channels. Each TAP can be programmed to operate through a range of voltage levels to suit various logic families.

JTAG/boundary-scan applications prepared using the company's ProVision or "Classic" software tools may be executed on this PXI platform with driver packages that are available for NI LabView, TestStand and LabWindows as well as Geotest ATEasy and a number of generic language compilers — such as CC, C++, Visual basic and .NET.

DAK adapters utilize standard MAC Panel series connector modules, providing a wide variety of contact types. The connection between the PXI instrument and receiver module is accomplished using either a passive printed circuit board, active signal condition module (as with the JT 2147/DAK) or flex circuit, with each providing optimum connectivity performance while reducing wiring cost.
