Webinar recording: Embedded JTAG/Boundary Scan for Built-In Self Test

Latent structural faults may be undetectable by traditional functional test, manifesting themselves via system failures in the field, which is unacceptable for mission-critical applications. This dictates a new approach to built-in test: using JTAG-based boundary-scan test (BST) within system firmware, thereby eliminating the need for external physical hardware probes, and providing an in-situ mechanism for failure prevention and proactive maintenance. This webinar describes the application of JTAG for Built-In Self Test, the technology behind it, Test Access Port (TAP) controller firmware requirements, the BST library Application Program Interface (API), and hardware design requirements.

Webinar recording: At-Scale BMC-based debug of x86 servers

Want to see some Intel Python CScripts ported to 'C' and running on a BMC on a live Intel server? This webinar, presented by ASSET's Alan Sguigna, includes a demonstration of embedded JTAG remote debug on a live Intel server platform. You'll see applications like low-level memory error checks, PCIe stress testing, and JTAG-based autonomous crash dump in action.

Webinar recording: JTAG-based debugging of AMD EPYC servers

Datacenter-scale deployment of AMD EPYC processors demands better debugging tools. Low-level firmware issues can manifest themselves in the most intermittent, difficult-to-duplicate bugs. This recorded webinar video demonstrates the advanced use of source-level and symbolic debug tools to identify silicon, hardware, firmware and software issues.
