Are you new to boundary scans and JTAG? Take a look at this quick guide to understanding what exactly it means, and why JTAG is essential. JTAG stands for Joint Test Action Group. When referred to as part of a boundary scan test, it means computer chips and electronic devices that are made according to […]

Chip manufacturers are now producing multichip modules (MCMs) that may include two or more arrays of devices within a single package. These modules can be tested using JTAG test pattern generation of the devices while on a PCB. To incorporate JTAG testing of MCMs there are several things that are needed: a netlist of the […]

If a chain of devices consisted only of boundary scan (JTAG) compliant devices, there would not be too much required testing. However, today’s boards contain complex, non-JTAG devices that interact with the boundary scan devices. Testing just the JTAG devices on the board is always an option. However, developing a test that takes into account […]

Not every boundary scan application experiences delays. Some run without any problems, but when there is a delay, oftentimes it can be traced back to lack of information from the board’s developer to the board’s tester.
