Benefits of Circuit Trace Tests

Posted on July 1, 2020

In today’s world, there’s no avoiding technology.  Whether you consider yourself “tech savvy” or not, there’s no escaping the continuously changing expectations of society. However, with the increasing demands comes a need for increased security. Protecting your personal information and data also means keeping your equipment up to date. Now, don’t get us wrong, we’re not implying you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on state of the art equipment.  No, instead, we’d like to introduce the idea of circuit trace tests.

onTAP circuit trace allows you to quickly and easily measure boundary scan pins on your PC. Adding rich, natural language scripting tools enables algorithmic flexibility for driving and sensing JTAG and TAP pins. Furthermore, onTAP circuit trace tests allow you to test, debug, and program circuit boards. This type of testing is especially crucial with boards that have limited test access for oscilloscopes and logic analyzers.

 

Save Time

Offering one easy to use menu selection, trace connects on one, or all, circuits within the board.  Thus making circuit trace tests a beneficial and time saving process.  Further, the ability to test unlimited connections at once keeps productivity at its maximum capacity. With versatility in mind, onTAP supports unlimited boundary scan chains.

 

Flexibility

In addition, Flynn Systems has created a system that allows for optimum user flexibility.  Users can now run script programs to test JTAG and non-JTAG logic.  This ability allows the user to test multiple levels of functionality.  As well as, the ability to run SVF files to program Flash, FPGAs, and CPLDs, or run SVF files imported from onTAP software.

If you are looking for an easy, effective, low-cost method to program and verify connectivity to your PCBs, consider onTAP circuit trace testing.  For more information on the products offered by Flynn Systems Corporation and how our team can assist you, contact us today at (603) 598-4444.
