Boundary Scan Test Development Software using IEEE 1149.x

The Eclipse™ Boundary Scan Test Development System is a Complete Solution for Test, Debug and In-System Configuration of PCBs with Boundary-Scan, SPI, I2C and other standardized serial interfaces.
stuck-at pin faults are debugged

Intellitech's Boundary Scan software is called the Eclipse Test Development Environment. The Eclipse TDE is part of a holistic solution that provides all the features that are required to test ‘real world’ printed circuit boards. This including important essential capabilities such as boundary scan 1149.1 IC to IC interconnect testing, 1149.6 SERDES testing, memory interconnect testing, voltage testing of DC/DC converters and LDOs, i2c tests, SPI device tests, on-board FLASH programming, in-system programming for FPGAs, CPLD programming, schematic based debugging, robust pin level diagnostics, open-source JTAG scan scripting, LabView/TestStand VIs and built-in PXI/VXI/GPIB instrument support.

Eclipse scales to any size design that conforms to the JTAG/1149.1 standard. Have a small PCB with a few BGA devices? Prices start at US$1595.00 for an Eclipse "small PCB" TDE license. The Eclipse TDE provides engineers with a comprehensive set of powerful tools that they can use to bring up and debug new designs as well as create, validate and apply IEEE 1149.1 based configuration and test suites.

     “Quality and reliability are important factors in our new line of optical networking equipment. We looked at a number of 1149.1 based test tools on the market and we chose Intellitech as it had the most comprehensive solution”

Eclipse reduces test development time by capturing more design attributes

Eclipse accepts industry standard data supplied by major CAE/CAD systems, IEEE 1149.1 BSDL files and PLD configuration file formats from all programmable semiconductor vendors so you can start debugging a prototype in just minutes instead of days.  With other IEEE 1149.1 tools much of the test engineer's time is spent re-entering design information through proprietary GUIs, creating 'characteristic' models for non-JTAG devices or describing PCB level busses in proprietary Heirarchical description languages.  "Demos" of  some JTAG tools may look a little like what Eclipse has to offer, but, the novice is not seeing the time the vendor spent manually creating and massaging input data to get the results in the demo.

     "High quality board and system test, and effective board and system debug, are essential in ensuring the reliability and availability of Sun Microsystem's products. Intellitech's Eclipse and scan-based test is critical to meeting this goal. Sun has used, and is continuing to use, Eclipse on products ranging from processor modules to Enterprise servers. We have found Eclipse from Intellitech to be a flexible, cost effective test solution, which is deployed throughout Sun Microsystems as a part of Sun's test process."
