Forging the Boundary-Scan Path Toward Greater Functionality and Ease-of-Use

Latest Release of JTAG Technologies' ProVision Development Software

STEVENSVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - JTAG Technologies continues to drive the boundary-scan industry forward with the latest release of its flagship development tool, JTAG ProVision. Already setting the pace in the industry in terms of comprehensiveness and ease-of-use, ProVision now encompasses even more functionality within its highly graphical user interface.

The level of automation provided by ProVision has been enhanced significantly, enabling users to develop their boundary-scan applications more quickly than ever. Test development for interconnections of memory devices and other non-boundary-scan devices is now completely automated. Furthermore, diagnostics for faults for non-boundary-scan device interconnections are prepared automatically.

The latest version of JTAG ProVision provides a number of extremely helpful aids to the user, including on-line training coupled with JTAG Technologies' versatile demonstration board. Also, the developer can now annotate the design via a built-in notes editor to record explanations and background information for projects and applications. Access to Help is now even more readily available via a "What's this?" pointer, and a number of direct functional linkages have been added, including fault coverage-to-JTAG Visualizer, diagnostics-to-JTAG Visualizer, and device type manager-to-model editor. Other ProVision enhancements include full support of multiplexed bus architectures in automatic flash programming and flash test generation, a new ODB++ netlist converter, archiving of schematics, and improved search capabilities in the netlist explorer and truth table reporter.

As with previous releases, JTAG ProVision remains fully compatible with the prior "Classic" development tools as well as with all of JTAG Technologies production systems. The latest release is available free of charge to customers with valid maintenance contracts. For new users, JTAG ProVision pricing starts at under $12,500.
