Press preview for SMTA, Donald Stevens Congress Center, Rosement, IL, September 27-28, Booth # 136
JTAG Technologies return to SMTA in 2016 to premiere several new hardware products for PCB testing and In-System [Device] Programming.
As one of the World’s leading supplier of JTAG-powered testers and device programming tools JTAG Technologies will be displaying much of its current hardware range and will also offer live software demonstrations. Experienced JTAG test engineers will be on-hand to discuss practical test issues and advise on solutions – just bring your questions and/or your target board to Booth 136 for an honest appraisal.
The latest product on display will be an example of JTAG’s ‘fixture embedded’ test technology – the JT 5705/FXT multi-function JTAG tester built into one the small linear series of cassette-based re-configurable fixtures of Everett Charles Technologies (ECT), a world-renowned name in PCB test fixtures and interface.
The JT 5705/FXT is a compact, single-board test system that supports analog measurement and stimulus, frequency measurements, digital I/O, boundary-scan testing and also in-system device programming. Within the fixture multiple JT 5705/FXT tester cards can be mounted on purpose built carriers featuring the ATE industry standard ‘Pylon’ connectors, making test system build a snap.
Other production-oriented solutions on display will include JTAG’s extensive ‘Symphony’ range of 3rd party tester integration products. Use of the Symphony options allows the very latest professional JTAG/boundary-scan capabilities to be added to existing ATE from Teradyne, Keysight, SPEA, Seica, NI and others…
Background to the JT 5705/FXT
Many new electronic designs feature some devices such as programmable logic and micro-controllers/SOCs that feature JTAG built-in test capabilities, however due to mixed signal nature of most of these designs it is useful to have mix of test signals to provide analog stimuli and measurement, digital I/O channels and so on. The JT 5705/FXT provides just these features allowing a easy build of a comprehensive board tester/programmer.
Peter van den Eijnden, MD JTAG Technologies comments “Industrial controls/automation and automotive electronics are just two examples where we expect to see a high demand for this type of product. A great many ECUs require an analog/sensor stimulus which registers back to a microprocessor where the values can be checked using boundary-scan or JTAG emulative test methods – as supported by JTAG Technologies CoreCommander tools.”.
