Using IIC to enable power supplies on your board

With the introduction of External Hardware per Subchain in XJDeveloper v3.9 it is possible to write a test that powers up your board using your XJLink2 to directly control the IIC pins before the JTAG chain is operable. Following is an example of how to set up this test in your project: […]

External Hardware available per-Subchain (including testing without JTAG)

Version 3.9 of XJDeveloper introduces the ability to control which External Hardware machines operate in each Subchain, and integrates this control into the Dynamic Chains feature. This means that any test may now be configured to use just JTAG, just External Hardware, or a combination of both, to drive signals on the circuit under test. […]

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. In this case, XJDeveloper’s Analyser screen can be used to help locate the issue. […]

More options for importing BOM information

The Bill of Materials, or BOM provides valuable information about the components in a netlist. This information is often key for project setups and, when available, is used by XJDeveloper to make project setup suggestions. This information is often taken from a separate BOM file or straight from a board’s netlist. With XJDeveloper 3.7 the volume of BOM data extracted for many of the netlist formats has increased. […]

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. […]
