When large numbers of outputs switch simultaneously, they can cause intermittency with your test due the ground bounce effect. JTAG Test with onTAP lets you control this problem by giving you control over how many outputs switch during a single test scan, as shown below: Understanding ground bounce In manufacturing test environments, it’s not […]

One of the most common comments we hear from our customers and business partners sounds something like this: “Well, I’ve heard about boundary scan testing, and have actually used it a bit before. Moving forward, we have a new project we need to use it on, and we have a bone pile I might get to.”
Now that your board has moved from prototyping to manufacturing, things are humming along until…there is a snag in manufacturing. Suddenly an entire run of boards is failing for unknown reasons, and you’re already dangerously close to being behind schedule.
As electronics production becomes more complex, and more expensive, board designers and manufacturers require tools that are better suited to handling the complexities of new designs. If this sounds like the same story you’ve heard from JTAG test companies for the past 10 – 15 years, it’s because now, more than ever, Boundary Scan Test Software / JTAG test and programming solutions are the best (read: most economical, accurate, safe, reliable, repeatable, consistent, flexible), choice for the handling of modern electronics.
