goJTAG demo kitWithin the framework of the goJTAG initiative, GOEPEL electronic has developed a new demonstration kit which includes a USB 2.0 controlled Boundary Scan controller (PicoTAP™), a demo board for practical exercises, and JTAG / boundary scan software.

The goJTAG initiative, founded by various universities and the company Testonica Lab, pursues the goal to provide the industry JTAG/Boundary Scan tools and knowledge based on an independent and non-commercial platform, sustainably accelerating the wide adoption of standardized IEEE 1149.x test methods. The focus of GOEPEL electronic’s engagement in goJTAG is the provision of free hardware and respective reference designs.

The goJTAG software source code written in Java is freely accessible and can be changed under the general terms and conditions for open-source software. The reference designs for the specifically developed JTAG / boundary-scan controller PicoTAP™ and the new goJTAG demo board are available for non-commercial applications free-of-charge.
