XJTAG DFT Assistant for Mentor Graphics software for PADS Schematic Design increases the product design for test and debug capabilities of the schematic capture and pcb design environment. Free software helps validate correct JTAG chain connectivity, through full integration with the PADS schematic capture environment. Comprised of two key elements, the XJTAG Chain Checker identifies common errors in a JTAG scan chain, such as incorrectly connected Test Access Ports (TAPs). XJTAG Access Viewer overlays the extent of boundary scan access onto the schematic diagram, allowing users to instantly see which components are accessible using boundary scan, and where test coverage could be further extended. https://www.xjtag.com
