The JTAG Provision Boundary-scan Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a test and programming application development suite that is used during product development, production and manufacturing to generate boundary-scan tests and in-system programming applications for assembled PCBs and systems. This integrated professional JTAG boundary-scan development environment (IDE) software 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 including memories, bus logic, and other active and passive parts.
How it works
With the ProVision boundary-scan software suite 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 comes with a built-in boundary-scan test sequencer for production ready test plans
ProVision’s development features are tightly integrated with JTAG Technologies’ advanced test coverage analysis tool and also with JTAG Visualizer graphical display system for design schematics and layouts. You can use these professional JTAG tools to quickly assess the thoroughness of the test during development and to make improvements prior to release.

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.
