How can Checkchain pass but Connection test report “broken chain”?

This is a common question during the development of a test system.

Layout Viewer

If your project uses an ODB++ netlist, then you can take advantage of the Layout Viewer in both XJDeveloper and XJRunner. Layout Viewer uses the layout information in the netlist to allow you to visualise the physical location of components, pins and nets on a board. This is especially useful for visualising errors from the connection test to guide you towards the most likely location of a fault on a board. […]
