Using JTAG Emulation for Board-Level Functional Test

Demanding Test Requirements for Processor Based Boards

As chip packaging and interconnectivity have become more dense and operate at higher clock frequencies, physical access for traditional bed-of-nails testing becomes limited. This results in loss of ICT (in-circuit test) fault coverage and higher test fixture costs. Reduced fault coverage, coupled with limited diagnostic resolution at ICT and FT (functional test), often add up to excessive debug times at ICT/FT repair stations. These costly, extended repair cycles can severely hamper, if not prevent, effective manufacture of processor based PCBs (printed circuit boards).
