JTAG Technologies provides high integrity interface to MAC-Panel SCOUT
JTAG Technologies is excited to announce the immediate release of a new JTAG/boundary-scan test hardware interface product compatible with the MAC Panel mass interconnect system. The JT 2147/eDAK is a multi-function signal conditioning module that allows ‘ideal world’ connections from JTAG Technologies PXI and PXIe DataBlasters to the MAC panel ‘Scout’ connection system.
Based on the popular QuadPod™ architecture from JTAG Technologies, the JT 2147/eDAK is an enhancement of JTAG ‘s current DAK interface and has been specifically designed for robust high-integrity ATE systems. In using the JT 2147/eDAK, test system builders will greatly simplify their wiring task and, at the same time, retain the excellent signal integrity assured by the QuadPod’s active interface.
In addition to four independent JTAG Test Access Ports (TAPs), the JT2147/eDAK features 64 digital I/O scan channels plus 16 ‘static’ DIOs. Each TAP can be programmed to operate through a range of voltage levels and two can also operate as other test and programming interfaces such as BDM or SWD.
Dave Wilson, General Manager of MAC Panel, comments ” We are delighted to have partnered with JTAG on this project. The combination of an outstanding boundary-scan application with the premier PXI dedicated connectivity solution is further confirmation of our commitment to providing exceptional solutions to the PXI market.”
Peter van den Eijnden, MD comments ‘JTAG Technologies equipment is used worldwide within high-reliability testers within Mil/Aero and other sectors. The JT 2147/eDAK will greatly simplify the system builder’s tasks and enhance the power of their test systems through improved signal conditioning.’
JTAG/boundary-scan applications prepared using JTAG Technologies ProVision or ‘Classic’ software tools may be executed on this PXI platform with driver packages that are available for NI LabView, TestStand and LabWindows alongside Geotest ATEasy and a number of generic language compilers (e.g. .NET framework, C++ and VB).
eDAK adapters utilize standard MAC Panel series connector modules, providing a wide variety of contact types. The connection between the PXI instrument and receiver module is accomplished using either a passive printed circuit board, active signal condition module (as with the JT 2147/eDAK) or flex circuit, with each providing optimum connectivity performance while reducing wiring cost.
