Intellitech unveils low-power Bluetooth based IEEE 1149.1/JTAG Pod with non-volatile test and failure memory
Intellitech Corporation, www.intellitech.com, the leader in lowering electronic product costs through IEEE 1149.1/JTAG, has announced UltraTAP-BT, a Bluetooth enabled IEEE 1149.1/JTAG pod with non-volatile test program and failure memory. The Bluetooth wireless capability brings the convenience, ease-of-use and low cost appreciated in consumer products to IEEE 1149.1/JTAG test. The UltraTAP-BT is designed to allow plug-n-play test and FPGA configuration without a computer, cable and software. 1149.1/JTAG based tests are executed from the UltraTAP-BT Flash memory. Since there is no software overhead or PC bus architecture, tests execute at a continuous test clock rate of up to fifty megahertz. Failures are stored for retrieval via a Bluetooth enabled device. The autonomous operation of the UltraTAP-BT enables new capabilities and lower cost for 1149.X based test during PCB bring-up, manufacturing, burn-in and field-service. One Bluetooth enabled PC can control multiple pods, breaking the traditional “one PC software, one pod” model used in 1149.1/JTAG test.
