Munich, Germany - Digitaltest GmbH, one of the leaders in electronics testing and production solutions, and JTAG Technologies, tier one provider of boundary-scan products world-wide, announced the integration of their test methods within the Digitaltest MTS series of in-circuit test systems. As a result, electronics designers and manufacturers will benefit from even greater test coverage and programmability of complex PCBs, all within a single process step.

New system combines the benefits of in-circuit and boundary-scan test

Digitaltest's Sigma 'combinational' test system is already among the most versatile and advanced board testers on the market with comprehensive shorts/opens, analogue, power-up, serial bus (I2C CAN etc..), and 'vectorless', testing options. DSP based analogue measurements allow shorts test of 1000 points per second. With integrated boundary-scan capabilities--powered by JTAG TechnologiesT -- users can now further enhance their high-precision testing capabilities. Test development and deployment times are minimized, test coverage is maximized whilst fixture complexity can be reduced due to test-point elimination especially for complex digital PCBs where physical access [to electrical nodes] is limited.

The JTAG Technologies boundary-scan option provides access to both test features and high throughput in-system programming (ISP) via the dedicated JT 3727/DPC, a four TAP IEEE 1149.x hardware controller developed in co-operation with Digitaltest.

ISP support currently covers NOR, NAND and serial flash parts plus many families of micros with embedded flash (see SCIP data) as well as IEEE Std 1532 CPLD and legacy PLDs.

Ute Boctor, President of Digitaltest, says, "Our customers have asked us to integrate boundary-scan into our products. In order to meet this request for high-performance digital testing and wide-ranging device ISP support, we are very pleased to collaborate with JTAG Technologies in offering an integrated solution. Customers will gain greater test coverage while maintaining a consistent user interface. "

Digitaltest with JTAG boundary-scan capabilities are available immediately via their world-wide network of distributors.

JTAG Technologies is a market leader and technology innovator of boundary-scan software and hardware products and services. The company was the first to bring to the market such important advances as automated test generation, automated fault coverage analysis, automated flash and PLD programming via boundary-scan, and visualized boundary-scan analysis. Its customers include world leaders in electronics design and manufacturing such as Ericsson, Flextronics, Honeywell, Medtronic, Motorola, Nokia, Philips, Raytheon, Rockwell-Collins, Samsung, and Sony. Its innovative boundary-scan products provide test preparation, test execution, test result analysis and in-system programming applications. With an installed base of over 6,500 systems worldwide, JTAG Technologies serves the communications, medical electronics, avionics, defence, automotive, and consumer industries with offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia. JTAG Technologies headquarters are located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
