XJTAG to Briton EMS
Briton EMS has selected the XJTAG development system as its boundary scan test solution.
The new system has been implemented at Briton's factory in Bedford, U.K. "We wanted to remove the guesswork from the test equation and to find a way of rapidly and accurately pinpointing faults on boards that failed their functional test", Simon Naylor, manufacturing director at Briton EMS told SMT. “These boards typically feature one or several JTAG devices, such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), which are inaccessible to probes and oscilloscopes. Using the XJTAG system, we can now isolate a faulty device immediately and rework or reflow the failed component to rectify the problem. This saves us time and increases our yields”, he added.
