Testing Beyond Limits.
Board Bring-Up & Design
Get ahead of the game with XJTAG – make sure there are no manufacturing problems with your hardware as soon as it lands on your desk.
Test with no firmware
Start tests on your design and hardware long before firmware is complete. You can test specific sections of a board, such as whether a processor can communicate with its memory, or the whole design. By the time firmware is in place, you have already confirmed your hardware has been correctly manufactured using XJTAG’s extensive XJEase library.
Reduce prototyping uncertainty
Increase confidence that your board is ready to hand over to software development. XJDeveloper shows you whether your board has been correctly manufactured and if it has not, where the problems lie.
Improve Design for Test
Obtain excellent test coverage and streamlined board designs to make production, test and programming more efficient and cost-effective. You can check and improve your design to ensure you achieve the best possible test coverage using XJDeveloper’s built-in Design for Test analytics. XJTAG also produces a set of DFT guidelines to help you get the most out of boundary scan on your design.
Production Test & Programming
Get the best test coverage and program devices in-system in one easy-to-use application. Increase yields by finding the cause of board failures with advanced debugging tools.
Overcome test access problems – even with BGA devices
Reach previously inaccessible connections without adding test points. XJTAG does not require physical access to each point on the board so you get increased coverage from just the JTAG TAP connectors – overcoming the limitations of bed of nails and flying probe testing. Additional test equipment such as the XJIO board can extend coverage right to the edges of the Unit Under Test and even check power rail levels.
Reduce rework time with helpful fault-finding
Easily find the source of a fault with accurate, user-friendly diagnostic tools. XJRunner provides clickable links to the layout and schematic to show the nets, pins and/or devices causing problems. Debugging boards with intermittent behaviour is made easier by looping tests. Use XJAnalyser’s simple, interactive GUI to quickly perform ad-hoc tests, taking direct control of the JTAG on your board.
Program devices in-system
Configure your boards by programming the JTAG devices, flash memories and configuration PROMs in-system. If you have a lot of data to program you can also use a high-speed customised programming solution such as XJFlash or XJDirect.
Integrate with your test executive
Keep things simple – XJTAG can be used as a stand-alone test system or integrated into your existing test executive, allowing easy interaction with other test equipment.
Rapid Test Development
Quickly set up and run test and programming routines. Fully-functioning test systems can be easily generated with XJDeveloper’s advanced connection test, extensive non-JTAG device library and integrated XJRunner.
