altJTAG Technologies (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) offers a new support package for board-level and system designers looking to implement a convenient BIT (Built-In Test) access for boundary-scan testing and on-board device (re)programming. In conjunction with FTDI Ltd (Glasgow, UK), JTAG Technologies offers a support option for the FTDI 2232D and FT2232H/4232H (Hi-speed USB 2.0) devices that allow direct connection from PC to target (UUT) via a standard USB cable. Anticipated users of this support option will include field repair technicians, who will be able to reduce their tool inventory, and design engineers looking to exercise JTAG circuitry during the hardware debug phase.
