Finding Faults with the Test Access Port (TAP)

Finding Faults with the Test Access Port (TAP)

Once a board developer passes along the new board and all related files and procedures to a test developer, the boundary scan test process can begin. We recommend including the TAP Integrity Test at the beginning of your interconnect test because the TAP contains pins...

Testing Multichip Modules

Testing Multichip Modules

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...

Using onTAP to test a board

What Does onTAP Test?   As boundary scan technology grows in popularity, more JTAG compliant devices (1149.1 and 1149.6) are now being included in board design, along with more JTAG chains that often require simultaneous testing. The great advantage to using onTAP, is...

onTAP BIST (Built In Self Test)

Tests may be defined in script files which may then be translated into executable Serial Vector Format (SVF) files. The general approach is to place all of the required BSDL files into a folder and then to relate the BSDL files to circuit locations in declarations at...

PC Based Parallel Test

Ontap_parallel.exe can be used to simultaneously run test suites on multiple PC boards using the onTAP DLL. Parallel board testing must be enabled for the DLL license. Testing is fastest on a multiple processor PC , particularly where one core processor is available for each board. For example if four PC boards are being tested in parallel, then a quad core processor is recommended so that the time to test four boards is about the same as that required to test one board.
