JTAG Targets Functional Testers (JTAG Technologies Provides High Integrity Interface to MAC-Panel SCOUT)
Press release date: April 24, 2014
Eindhoven, the Netherlands -- JTAG Technologies is excited to announce the immediate release of a new JTAG/boundary-scan hardware interface product compatible with the Virginia Panel (VPC) mass interconnect system. The JT 2147/VPC is a signal conditional module that allows ‘ideal world’ connections from JTAG Technologies PXI and PXIe DataBlasters to the VPC connection system.
Based on the highly successful QuadPod™ architecture from JTAG Technologies, the JT 2147/VPC has been specifically designed for connection into G20x or G14x 192 pin ‘QuadraPaddle’ connectors and is compatible with the VPC ‘pull thru’ system. By integrating the JT 2147/VPC, test system builders will greatly simplify their wiring task and, at the same time, retain the excellent signal integrity assured by the QuadPod’s active interface.
The JT2147/VPC features four independent JTAG Test Access Ports (TAPs) along with 16 static DIO channels and 64 dynamic DIOS channels. Each TAP can be programmed to operate through a range of voltage levels to suit various logic families.
Peter van den Eijnden, MD comments ‘JTAG Technologies equipment is used world-wide within Mil/Aero and other industries as a component within functional testers. The JT 2147/VPC will greatly simplify the system builder’s tasks and enhance the power of their test systems through improved signal conditioning.’
JTAG/boundary-scan applications prepared using JTAG Technologies ProVision or ‘Classic’ software tools may be executed on this PXI platform with driver package
(now Marvin Test Solutions) ATEasy and a number of generic language compilers (e.g. .NET framework, C++ and VB).
The VPC adapters utilize standard QuadraPaddle connector modules, providing a wide variety of contact types. The connection between the PXI(e) instrument and receiver module is accomplished using either a passive printed circuit board, active signal condition module (as with the JT 2147/VPC) or flex circuit, with each providing optimum connectivity performance while reducing wiring cost.
