JTAG Connectors, Joint Test Action Group

Joint Test Action Group, also known as JTAG, is the common name for IEEE standard 1149.1. This standard defines a particular method for testing board-level interconnects, which is also called Boundary Scan. In short, JTAG was created as a way to test for common problems, but lately has become a way of configuring devices. The JTAG hardware interprets information from five different signals: TDI (Test Data In), TDO (Test Data Out), TMS (Test Mode Select), TCK (Test Clock), and TRST (Test Report-optional).

The primary advantage of boundary-scan technology is the ability to observe data at the device inputs and control the data at the outputs independently of the application logic. Simple tests can find manufacturing defects such as unconnected pins, a missing device, an incorrect or rotated device on a circuit board, and even a failed or dead device.

As the demand for higher frequencies and wider bandwidths continue their relentless march upward, RF connectors need to keep up and even exceed this demand. Mating the RF connector to a PCB or substrate requires careful consideration of several factors to get the full performance...
VITA 66 has been around for some years now. What goes into this standard continues to expand. VITA 66 is an evolution to increase your options inside the existing VITA 46 (VPX) market space. Samtec is pleased to announce the addition of our VITA 66 Landing Page. We are designed i...
In this video from DesignCon 2022, Keysight’s Mike Resso refers to 224 Gbps as a “blindingly fast speed.” Ten years from now, when 224 is old-hat and commonplace, we will look back at that statement and smile at how far we’ve come since those technologically backward, archaic day...
If you need a connector and you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, where on the Internet do you go first? You go to some sort of search engine, whether it be Google, Octopart, Digikey, or an on-site search like the one on Samtec.com. We’ve been working on several upgrade...
I recently attended the New York International Auto Show. While I was mesmerized by the new Corvette, the Huracán STO, and the GT-R, in reality I am thinking about updating my WRX. Whatever the budget, high-performance cars are high-precision engineered solutions using state-of-t...
