Functional Test (FT)

Functional Test (FT) with JTAG/Boundary Scan

Combination of JTAG/Boundary Scan with Functional Test (FT)

Functional Test has long been established as a reliable instrument for quality assurance, but the increasing complexity of todays designs makes it difficult and time consuming to create test programs.

Today, it is practically impossible to test every function of a highly complex UUT.

A combination of Functional Test and JTAG/Boundary Scan makes sense since Boundary Scan does not test the circuit’s functionality but uses its pins for driving and measuring the PCB traces. Therefore, the test of an interface is very simple. The assessment of functions, which can rarely be attained during “normal operations”, can easily be tested. Furthermore, Boundary Scan enables the fault diagnosis at pin level which is extremely useful for subsequent repair of the PCB.

 Advantages:

  • Increase in test depth
  • Fault diagnostic at pin level
  • Test program generation becomes far simpler

JTAG/Boundary Scan Integration in Aeroflex 5800 Series

Aeroflex

The SCANFLEX JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware supports the Aeroflex 5800 series of multi- configurable and multi-functional ATE systems.

The integrated Boundary Scan hardware consists of PXI Compact controller incl. Paddle Card and a TAP Interface Card (TIC02/SR). The architecture of the controller supports data rates up to 80 MHz at up to four independent TAPs. As well as the increased test coverage, further advantages are a significant cost reduction and a reduced time-to-market.
The test platform of Aeroflex’s 5800 series supports the true reusability of all JTAG/Boundary Scan test and programming procedures that were generated by GOEPEL electronic’s CASCON GALAXY software.

In addition, the 5800 series Digital Test Points (DTP) can be directly controlled by the SCANFLEX hardware, forming an integral part of the Boundary Scan chain and allowing additional parallel access to the UUT.
