An easier way to run SVF or STAPL files in XJTAG projects

There are new global functions in XJTAG 3.6 which are always available to use (like the built-in Connection Test). The functions RUNSTAPL and RUNSVF allow users to run programming files without having to write any further XJEase to enable this. […]

Categorisation Suggestion Improvements

From XJTAG 3.6 onwards the suggested device categories on the Categorise Devices Screen have been renamed and expanded, with separate categories for different types of resistor packs. In addition, the “Suggested Resistors – Other” category now displays the reason for any resistor’s inclusion using a separate “Reason” column, to make the inclusion of a device into this category easier to understand. […]

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. But because not every eventuality can be foreseen the JTAG specification also allows IC vendors to create their own types of boundary scan cells.   […]

Categorising devices: Ignore, Unfitted, or Uncategorised?

One of the questions we are commonly asked by new users, but also by users who have not used XJTAG for a while and are coming back to it, is about the differences between device categorisations in XJDeveloper. […]

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. […]

Debugging Connection Test – part 1 (Updated)

This post is an update to the original “Debugging Connection Test (part 1)” post – over time several features in XJTAG have changed considerably and may be hard to find by following my original post. […]

Why categorise resistors, inductors, links and fuses?

Recently one of our newer customers started on their first solo board setup. They had previously seen XJTAG demonstrated and had also had their initial board setup done by an XJTAG engineer. When they came to setting a board up for themselves they tried to follow the path that the XJTAG engineer had talked them through – […]

Categorising Transistors in XJDeveloper

Transistors are one of the things we get asked about quite a bit: “How should I categorise the transistors in my project?” […]
