Blog  
10/30/2003   Post a comment
It's not just for test anymore: Recent extensions to JTAG not only enhance its test coverage, but also make it useful for design as well, says this National Semiconductor technologist. Suppliers of CPLD's and FPGA's were quick to support IEEE 1532 standard for Boundary-Scan-based In-System-Configuration of programmable devices. Now designers have a way to develop flexible systems where functionality can be adapted to a specific customer or application, he says.
