SANTA CLARA, Calif. With the introduction of IEEE 1149.6 for advanced digital networks, JTAG Technologies has created a support program to run "dot6" testing. The 1149.6 standard updates 1149.1 ("dot1") specifications, which allowed a certain amount of erroneous pass-fail indications.
The JTAG ProVision produces a test for advanced digital interfaces based on the circuit netlist, 1149.6 BSDL files, and component model files. The "dot6" boundary-scan solution addresses shortcomings of "dot1," such as tests run at the wrong operating speeds for verifying circuits. The "dot6" test produces diagnostic fault reports with failure analysis for individual problems. The report can be analyzed and output as color-highlighted graphs.
