MANHASSET, N.Y. XJTAG, a Cambridge, England-based global supplier of IEEE 1149.x-compliant boundary scan development systems, is adjusting its corporate licensing plan to the economic hard times.
The company is enabling clients to spread the cost of boundary scan design, development and test equipment.
The new license plan, which includes a 5-year price guarantee, as well as support, maintenance and annual upgrades, is designed to help customers expand their capabilities while keeping a handle on costs.
According to Simon Payne, CEO of XJTAG: "Our corporate licensing plan is designed to provide our growing corporate customer base with a means of expanding their boundary scan capability whilst at the same time keeping a tight control of costs during the current economic turmoil."
The new licensing model has been in beta phase with a number of XJTAG's existing clients and is available now across the entire product range.
The licensing plan is scalable, giving businesses the opportunity to increase or decrease the number of licenses it holds after the first year, according to the company's requirements.
XJTAG's IEEE Standard 1149.x-compliant boundary scan development system is used worldwide by design engineers, developers, OEMs and contract manufacturers for debugging, testing and programming complex ball grid array populated printed circuit boards and systems.
XJTAG's distributors in the United States include DiagnoSYS Systems and Etoolsmiths. XJAG emphasized that the new pricing plan is available in U.S. dollars.
