I hope this facilitates quality control ... and doesn't allow for counterfeit devices to emulate the intended responses to the known test conditions and thereby sneak through the system.

It appears that 1149.1-2013 has that covered.   I read this in IEEE Today's Engineer.

http://www.todaysengineer.org/2013/Jun/ic-counterfeiting-IEEE-1149-1-2013.asp

The new features of iJTAG 1149.1-2013 enable yield ramp up by using a thing called ECID, Electronic Chip ID, which correlates system test back to the wafer position.  They are using this for trackign the die from production to board/system test. 

Along with that, I guess, there is a 'free ride' for also preventing counterfeiting through re-marking the part.  The part will have a JTAG accessible ECID which tells you what speed grade, temperature grade or pass/fail status of the die.  So no longer can one scrunge the trash bins of Intel to find parts which didnt pass and then sell them off as working parts.  No longer can you erase the C temperature grade on the top of the chip and mark it as Industrial or AEC or MIL.

All good stuff in my view.

why is IEEE 1149.1-2013 jtag in automotive?

seems it could be used there.  wouldnt 1149.1-2013 JTAG apply to aerospace, defense, computing, storage, and networking as well?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
