This highly technical on-line training comes in the form of a series of videos in which our experts will provide you with a hands-on introduction to JTAG boundary scan. You will connect to a remote PC from your browser to use a full XJTAG development system connected to live demo hardware. These practical sessions are interspersed with theory to explain the principles you are applying.
By the end, you will have a solid understanding of how boundary scan works, how it helps to bring-up a prototype and debug a failing board; and how to create and run tests.
The course is expected to take about 3 hours in total but can be completed in several sittings.
What you’ll learn
Learn the basics of boundary scan and how you can use it across the full product life-cycle to improve designs and reduce re-spins, and to enhance test coverage, fault diagnosis and production yields on complex high-density electronics. The following topics are covered:
Why the JTAG standard was developed
How a JTAG devices’ boundary scan cells are used for testing an assembled board
How the JTAG signals control a JTAG IC’s internal registers
Setting up an XJLink to access a board using JTAG (practical)
Get a JTAG chain running and check its high-speed performance (practical)
BSDL files – contents and format
Use the XJAnalyser software to set and read pins on JTAG devices (practical)
Explore the different JTAG modes (practical)
Use XJAnalyser to manually test LEDs and an oscillator (practical)
How XJTAG’s automatically generated interconnect test works
How boundary scan can test non-JTAG devices
Run tests and debug a failing board (practical)
What circuit data is used when developing boundary scan tests
Create a test project to test a board (practical)
A PC with a browser to connect to a remote PC.No prior knowledge of JTAG is required.
