Custom cells in BSDL files

The JTAG standard contains definitions for various different types boundary scan cells, each of which have different capabilities, and these allow an IC vendor to accurately describe how the pins on their chips behave.

FIXED – Issues when generating ODB++ netlists using Altium Designer 17.0

The original post referred to an issue with Altium Designer 17.0. This issue was fixed in Altium Designer 17.1.5. Using the current version of Altium Designer to update ODB++ netlists created in Altium Designer 16 or earlier will no longer cause problems with your XJTAG project. However, if you have created an XJTAG project using a netlist exported from Altium Designer 17.0 then updating your netlist from 17.1.5 will probably break your project (although it may make previously broken features of the project begin to work.) If this affects you please feel free to contact XJTAG Support for advice on the easiest way to adjust your XJTAG project to work with the fixed ODB++ output. […]

Testing XJLink hardware

We understand that sometimes (for your own sanity if nothing else) you need to test that your test equipment is working. For this reason, it is possible to run a health-check on XJLink2 hardware (and XJLink2-based hardware) using the self-test feature available in the XJLink Manager. The self test can be run with or without a loopback connector but should never be run with the XJLink connected to test hardware. […]

The full output viewer shows the test data for one run of Connection Test at a time, and there is a dropdown box to change between the available test modes. […]

64 bit version of XJTAG

Since Windows Vista, Microsoft has offered 64 bit versions of Windows for 64 bit hardware and today almost every new machine will come with a 64 bit version of Windows. 64 bit Windows is still able to run 32 bit applications and up until now XJTAG has only been available as a 32 bit application. With the release of XJTAG 3.5, we are now offering a 64 bit version alongside the 32 bit version. […]
