TECHNICAL SESSION Embedded IP comes in a myriad of shapes, forms, sizes, and purposes: controllers for power or clock domains, PLLs, test registers for downstream blocks, Logic and Memory BIST IP, DSPs, sensors, mixed signal blocks and so on. Each one requires specific handling, and integrating all IP access, control, and test requirements is difficult, error-prone, and more often than not a manual process. IEEE P1687 (IJTAG) aims at replacing these ad-hoc methods and proprietary in-house solutions with a structured, universal approach. Following this standard provides full automation of embedded instruments (IPs), true reuse of operations defined at the instrument level, and a safe method of exchanging control, access, or test information for in-house as well as third party instruments.
The presentation outlines what IJTAG is, and how it can help you to get your embedded instrument design done quickly, safely, and first time right.
