JTAG Technologies announced the latest in its highly versatile range of boundary-scan controller hardware for PCB assembly and system testing – the versatile JT 5705 series. This new design concept incorporates both JTAG/boundary-scan controller functions and mixed-signal I/O channels. Extensive input protection is provided to ensure high levels of in-service reliability and low maintenance. Connection to the tester is via a USB interface.
The first in the series – JT 5705/USB – is supplied as desktop instrument, primarily aimed at hardware validation applications in design, small-scale production test and in some cases, field service and repair. The JT 5705/USB features two 15MHz TAPs and 64 I/Os available through 0.1” IDC connectors. Of the I/O channels 56 are always digital, 16 of which also feature a frequency function, with the remaining eight used as either digital I/O or analog I/O.
