JTAG ProVision

The JTAG ProVision boundary-scan software suite is used to generate boundary-scan tests and in-system programming applications for assembled PCBs and systems. This professional development tool is fully automated and supports the import of design data from over 30 different EDA and CAD/CAM systems. Other key data inputs are JTAG device BSDL (description) models and a large, well-maintained model library describing thousands of non-JTAG devices which includes memories, bus logic, and other active and passive parts.

How it works

With ProVision you can rapidly generate a wide range of test and programming applications using a project database built up from the inputs above. All applications can be optimized, validated and run within the ProVision environment prior to delivery of the finished test sequences to the manufacturing and/or testing facility.

ProVision’s development features are tightly integrated with JTAG Technologies’ advanced test coverage analysis tool and with JTAG Visualizer graphical display system for design schematics and layouts. You can use these tools to rapidly assess the thoroughness of the test during development and to make improvements prior to release.

Features

  • Easy to learn, requires minimal knowledge
  • Simple to use with built-in application wizards
  • Creates board tests, system tests and programs devices
  • Backwards compatible with other JTAG tools
  • Seamless links to Visualizer and Boundary-Scan Diagnostics
  • Built-in fault coverage examiner assessment tool
  • Minimal training needed
  • Supported world-wide through factory trained application engineers
  • Full ATPG for infrastructure, interconnects, dot 6 interconnects, logic clusters, logic components, memories, flash devices, serial SPROMs, NAND flash etc.
  • Supports multi-board systems with multiple netlist import
  • Built-in TAP connection mechanism supprts IEEE 1149.1 Gateways and Bridge chips
  • Built-in ‘drag ‘n’ drop’ board-to-board connection editor
  • Features re-usable model mapping files and model editor
  • Includes JFT – Python-based scripting system for complex cluster and mixed signal device testing
  • Built-in high-precision fault coverage analysis tool
  • Built-in application executive (AEX Manager) for test sequencing and report generation

Designed for single PCB or system testing, ProVision is the most complete boundary-scan applications development tool available today. ProVision supports structural testing of scan path infrastructures, interconnects, IEEE std 1149.6 interconnects, memory clusters, digital logic clusters and mixed signal clusters. With ProVision you can also prepare programming applications for CPLDs, FPGAs serial PROMs, I2C & SPI devices, NANDFlash etc.. Overall fault coverage can be assessed using the built in coverage examiner tool and the results exported to HTML and CSV formats.

JTAG ProVision is subject to a continuous improvement cycle. New features and device models are introduced on a regular basis and are distributed via our support section or by CD distribution for major enhancements.

JTAG Provision currently supports devices from all manufacturers in the overview below . If you have a have any devices however that are not supported yet simply get in touch and we’ll update our model library.
