What is the range of your controllers, the distance between the test system and the target?

The range between the QuadPOD and the target depends on the test clock TCK rate and certain characteristics of the board under test. At a TCK of 10 MHz, the allowable distance is approximately 8 meters of flat cable. At 1 MHz, the range is 100 meters. For most applications, including running system tests inside an environmental chamber the distance is not a limiting factor. We also have range extenders if there is a need for an unusually long distance to the board under test.

We also offer a product that allows virtually unlimited distance to the target, TapCommunicator. This system uses an existing network, such as your corporate intranet, to provide secure, ultra-long distance connectivity.
