The XJTAG IEEE Std 1149x boundary scan system is being used by Haliplex to debug prototypes and test production units - leading to cost savings for the MSPP product designer.

Haliplex said the XJTAG system is saving the company more than USD100,000 (GBP65,300) per year by reducing the engineering time to commission new boards by enabling the company to repair boards more quickly and reducing the number of boards that are scrapped.

Haliplex designs Multi-Service Provisioning Platform (MSPP) products that can be deployed within existing or new networks supporting high-bandwidth standards such as Gigabit Ethernet and SDH/SONET.

Products such as the Haliplex HPX1600 series of multi-service access terminals contain printed circuit boards (PCBs) that are densely populated with devices such as high-performance embedded processors, FPGAs and ASICs, as well as high-speed telecom data-path devices.

Other components include optical fibre drivers, I2C, One-wire devices, and Ethernet switches.

The XJTAG system is allowing the company to achieve high test coverage for each board and helps trace faults accurately to save debugging and repair time.

Haliplex's contract manufacturing partner builds the boards and uses the XJRunner run-time-only version of XJTAG optimised for production-test applications, to test each production unit.

Device programming and loading of serial numbers is also completed from within the boundary scan environment.
