Minimum processor requirements for XJTAG

We recently had to support a customer who was unable to run XJTAG 3.1 on an older PC. It turned out that the processor in the PC in question did not support SSE2 instructions. During the development of v3.1 we upgraded the compiler we use to build XJTAG and it now uses these instructions to speed up execution. SSE2 instructions were introduced with the Pentium 4 in 2001 and were supported in AMD processors with their Opteron and Athlon 64 processors from 2003 onwards.

Don’t use EDIF netlists

One of the many netlist formats that XJTAG supports is EDIF 2, an open data exchange format that is widely supported. EDIF stores both netlist and schematic data, but XJTAG only uses the netlist data. It often seems like the obvious choice of format to export from your CAD tool to use in XJTAG. However, there are a number of problems that we have come across with EDIF netlists: […]

Programming the TI MSP430 Microcontroller

Although it has a JTAG port, the TI MSP430 microcontroller is not a boundary scan capable device. Instead of the standard boundary scan registers there is a set of registers that allow the various functions of the device to be accessed and configured. […]
