Embedded IJTAG | P1687 BIST | Synopsys DFTMAX | ScanWorks

The What: A real-world proof-of-concept of the tools ecosystem that is bringing about the adoption of the IEEE P1687 IJTAG embedded instrumentation standard.

The Goal: Reducing design and manufacturing costs, shortening design cycles and delivering more robust, high-quality systems to the marketplace.

The How: The chip vendor architected a chip, and then inserted and synthesized an embedded instrument and P1687 network with Synopsys’ DFTMAX™ and TetraMAX®. Next, a system developer placed the chip on a board and used ASSET’s ScanWorks® platform to access and operate the embedded instrument to test the chip to eliminate no-trouble-found issues.
