XJTAG Improves Development System

Virtex-5 FPGA System MonitorXJTAG enhanced its development system by adding support for Xilinx’s Virtex-5 FPGA System Monitor. This enhancement will provide XJTAG users with easy access to what is the industry’s first FPGA analogue debug and system management tool for thermal management and measurement of on-chip power supply voltages. The System Monitor is now fully integrated within the XJTAG environment providing users with easy to access on-chip power supply monitoring, temperature monitoring, and precision analogue inputs.

The XJTAG development system is a cost-effective ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for debugging, testing and servicing electronic printed circuits boards and systems throughout the product lifecycle. The XJTAG system reduces the time and cost of board development and prototyping by allowing early test development, early design validation of CAD netlists, fast generation of highly functional tests and test re-use across circuits using the same devices.

XJTAG enables engineers to test a high proportion of the circuit (both boundary scan and cluster devices) including ball grid array (BGA) and chip scale packages, such as SDRAMs, Ethernet controllers, video interfaces, Flash memories, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and microprocessors. XJTAG also enables In-System Programming of FPGAs, complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) and Flash memories.

Pricing for the XJTAG system ranges from £3,500 (€5,075) to £9,900 (€14,355).
