Extending XJTAG’s Signal Integrity Error Analysis

Continuing from XJTAG 3.12’s Enhanced Signal Integrity Analysis feature (see here and here), XJTAG 3.13 brings more algorithms to help identify potential issues with the JTAG chain. This article describes more of the symptoms it can spot and their likely causes. […]

Expanding Enhanced Signal Integrity Error Analysis

XJTAG 3.12 expanded the capability of the Signal Integrity Analysis in XJTAG tools, adding the ability to suggest certain causes of error. This post continues from the previous post on this subject, and describes further errors that XJTAG tries to identify. […]

Using the Analyser screen to debug initialisation issues

The blog article ‘Debugging Connection Test – part 1 (Updated)’ discusses how to use  ‘Debug Connection Test’ to identify a missing disable value.  However, if a disable value is set to the wrong value, i.e. low rather than high, then it could prevent the Debug Connection Test from running at all.

Creating SVF files using Xilinx Vivado

Creating SVF files to program Xilinx FPGAs has historically been accomplished using iMPACT, installed as part of Xilinx’s ISE Design Suite.  With Xilinx’s most recent FPGAs this is no longer possible and instead their new tool, Vivado, must be used. The following instructions guide you through this process and assume version 2016.1 or later of [...]
