The latest version of ScanNavigator software offers full support for IEEE1149.6, an extension to the IEEE1149.1 standard. ScanNavigator software is a leading suite of powerful tools for boundary-scan testing and programming based on the original JTAG standard, IEEE 1149.1. The new version of ScanNavigator has been extended to support the latest boundary-scan technology for the testing of high-speed buses and interfaces such as LVDS, Fiber Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and more.
Neither IEEE Standard 1149.1 nor IEEE Standard 1149.4 provides an effective and simple testing protocol with adequate fault coverage for high-speed serial communication interconnects. A few successful techniques have been developed for testing these applications; however, they can be used only in particular cases.
The IEEE Standard 1149.6 has been developed to allow testing of high-speed AC coupled interconnects on a PCB. This standard is built on IEEE Standard 1149.1, using the same test access port interface of four (or five) pins, the TAP controller, and a boundary scan register.
Acculogic’s ScanNavigator Integrated Boundary Scan Test and Programming Environment consists of test, programming, and run-time modules that use Microsoft’s .NET technology and XML to simplify test generation, increase productivity, and allow full integration of test data, programming information, and diagnostic databases with Acculogic’s testability and coverage analysis tools. Based on the premise that all boundary scan test and onboard programming activities rely on a number of common data preparation steps, ScanNavigator architecture is optimized for data sharing and portability to reduce development time and increase data reuse.
ScanNavigator-dot6 supports 1149.6 as an optional feature that can be incorporated into any ScanNavigator Virtual Interconnect Test (VIT), making the implementation of 1149.6 tests practically transparent to the user.
ScanNavigator-do6 is available for immediate release and a networked, single user license is priced at $4,500 USD.
