The DFT Analysis screen in XJTAG version 2.4 has been completely redesigned to allow you to assess the test coverage of your circuit design more easily and in a more efficient way. This post highlights the most important new features. […]
We asked one of the guys in-house who works with XJDeveloper most of the time to give some tips from his experience of setting up projects, and here is what he came up with: […]
Part 1 of this series explained how to add or edit the categories for the selectors in XJDeveloper. This entry will focus on using BOM (Bill of Materials) information in the selectors, using the demonstration board that comes with the XJTAG development system as an example. […]
This post discusses the selectors in XJDeveloper and how you can customise them. Selectors are used whenever you have to select either a Net or a Device. Entries in a selector are grouped into categories that can be customised.
There are two ways to export projects from XJDeveloper either exporting to an XJPack or a zip file. Both options are found on the File -> Export menu in XJDeveloper. XJPack files are used by XJRunner in production. When you have finished creating your project in XJDeveloper, “pack” it and then this file can be used in production. Zipping a project will create a single zip file that contains all the files used by the project. This can be useful if you are sending a project to another department, or for creating regular backups of your project. […]
In versions of XJTAG prior to 2.0, the system supported just four netlist formats: RINF, EDIF 2, PADS PCB and Protel. The parsers for these netlists were written carefully against specifications for the formats where possible, and so should reliably parse all valid netlists in those formats. […]
This post covers XJPack files – the XJTAG mechanism for deploying your tests to production. XJDeveloper is used to write your tests and can run your tests whilst you are creating them. In a future version it will also integrate the debugging functionality of the command line tool XJDebug to allow you to debug your tests from within XJDeveloper. […]
