Electronics Test Development gets faster with XJTAG Boundary Scan v3.6

Sep 29, 2017

Cambridge, UK, September 29, 2017 — XJTAG®, a world leading supplier of boundary scan technology has launched a major update to its flagship software, XJDeveloper.

XJTAG v3.6 includes several new productivity and automation-focused enhancements, allowing engineers to setup tests for even the most complex boards in significantly less time.

Simon Payne, CEO, said: “XJTAG has been able to improve XJDeveloper’s key aspects through continuous engagement with our client base and by remaining focused on the development of our core toolset.”

XJTAG’s unified test and programming IDE, XJDeveloper, is an intuitive development and debug environment that makes it quick and easy to set up and run JTAG tests, detecting faults on high-density boards without costly test fixtures or functional testing.

New features and benefits of XJDeveloper v3.6 include:

New release of XJEase library

The v3.6 release incorporates a new documentation feature in XJEase files so that users can label methods in the XJEase file which can be allocated to testing specific saved devices. These labels are used by the ‘automatic test list creation’ feature to further accelerate test setup.

Automatic test list creation

From now on, there will be no need to create test groups for each type of device and manually add the test function for each individual device to the relevant test group. With the new v3.6 release, CheckChain and Connection Test are automatically added to the test list when a new project is created. When a device is categorised, XJDeveloper will find its relevant test function and add it to the test list. The test list can also be populated at the end of a project setup via the “Suggest Tests…” button. The automated matching allows faster board set up times.

Simplified run of SVF/STAPL files in XJTAG projects

The new global built-in test functions RUNSVF and RUNSTAPL simplify the running of SVF/STAPL files which is especially beneficial for in-system programming of CPLD/FPGA using these types of file. The built-in character of these functions allows a noticeable simplification of the programming process.

Arrays in XJEase

In response to customer feedback, XJTAG now allows users to specify arrays of the built-in XJEase types (INT, STRING, FILE) to make operations much easier to program. The introduction of arrays in v3.6 significantly improves the readability, making it more user-friendly and having a positive impact on time taken to write and maintain tests.

Enhancements to XJEase debugger

Version 3.6 of XJTAG adds views of the call stack and of the currently-set breakpoints to the XJEase debugger in XJDeveloper, completing its debugging capabilities by enabling a view of the stack of functions which have been called to get to the current point in the code, and allowing the user to easily view and remove breakpoints from the code.

This update of the XJTAG Development System is now available to all customers with a valid maintenance contract. Full-featured free trials with free board set-up are also available to new customers. To find out more, visit www.xjtag.com or contact us at enquiries@xjtag.com.
