JTAG/Boundary Scan integration in In-Circuit-Test (ICT) systems

In-Circuit-Test (ICT) is the most widespread technology at present because the principle allows all electrically detectable faults to be found. But its capability is becoming limited by access difficulties since components have become smaller, and because of more complex narrow width nets and multi-layer boards.

Boundary Scan does not have access limitations. A combination is beneficial whenever mechanical access is difficult even though there may be a small number of Boundary Scan components on the PCB.

Advantages:

  • Very fast total system
  • Very high fault coverage also for highly compact PCBs
  • Reduction of nail bed adapter costs
  • Simple test program generation because each test technology is applied according to its core competence

Third party ATE partner

Aeroflex 4200, 5200 and 5300 series

Aeroflex

The SCANFLEX JTAG/Boundary Scan hardware supports the Aeroflex 4200, 5200 and 5300 series of In-Circuit and Functional ATE systems.

With this Boundary Scan implementation, a multitude of additional test options is available for the users on board and system level over the complete product life cycle without invasive access of the nail bed. As well as the increased test coverage, further advantages are a significant cost reduction and a reduced time-to-market.

Aeroflex’ tester platform supports the true reusability of all JTAG/Boundary Scan test and programming procedures that were generated by GOEPEL electronic’s CASCON GALAXY® software.

JTAG/Boundary Scan Integration into Agilent 3070 Series

JTAG/Boundary Scan Integration in Agilent Series

Agilent 3070 - Utility Card Module UCM3070/x

UCM3070/x is a professional Boundary Scan option particularly developed for Agilent’s Utility Card. The SCANBOOSTER™ based TAP controller has two independent voltage and impedance programmable TAPs, two banks of each four PIPs and self test functionality. Two PIP signals can be used as analogue ports to drive and measure analogue values during a test generated with SYSTEM CASCON™.

The Boundary Scan module is powered by Agilent’s Utility Card interface, hence no extra power supply is required. An extension connector provides interface pins for future developments on external modules.
