6TL Test Platforms

The integration of JTAG/Boundary-scan with 6TL’s brand of functional test equipment (FTE) provides a best of both solution that can address the majority of board and system test requirements. Since boundary-scan and functional test  are complementary test methods, this combination often provides an optimal strategy with lowest overall cost and maximum coverage for anticipated fault types. Using the built-in JTAG controller capability of the YAV9JTAG card also reduces cost and resource overheads for basic applications

Test and in-system programming applications are generated on JTAG Technologies’ development tools (JTAG ProVision or Classic) and can be easily imported into the 6TL environment.

  • Cost-effective integration of JTAG boundary-scan testing/programming and 6TL YAV module capabilities
  • Supports YAV9JTAG boundary-scan controller card and YAV9JTAH ‘DIOS’ module
  • Single production phase for boundary-scan and functional testing
  • Greatly enhances test coverage on digital and mixed signal designs.
  • Adds comprehensive JTAG-based In-System Programming capabilities and Processor Controller Test options
  • Easy to retrofit to existing fixtures and programs

JTAG has traditionally been considered a structural type test per formed from the inside [of an IC ] out – enabled by the presence of test logic embedded within JTAG/boundary-scan/IEEE 1149.x compatible devices. When applied to suitable, mostly digital, designs JTAG can on its own, offer a complete test solution. More often however merging JTAG with an additional test or inspection method such as functional test gives a more complete solution.

YAV9JTAG card:

  • JTAG Technologies compatible boundary-scan controller based on FT2232H connected via USB (important – no TRST pin support)
  • Alternative external TAP connector (suitable for connection to a JT3705/USB, a JT2137 POD or a JT2147/xxx POD)
  • 112 Digital I/O channels 1.8V/2.5V/3.3V (5V tolerant)

YAV9JTAH card:

  • 104 Digital I/O channels 1.8V/2.5V/3.3V (5V tolerant)
  • 5 RS-232 level inputs & 3 RS-232 level outputs
  • A UART controlling 2 RS-232 outputs and 2 RS-232 inputs (accessible via JFT/Python script)
  • 8 Analog inputs (accessible via JFT/Python script)
