Integration and testing of IP blocks in large SOCs has been a manual, time consuming design effort. A new standard called IEEE P1687 (or "IJTAG") for IP plug-and-play integration was created to simplify these tasks and EDA tools are emerging to support the standard. IJTAG simplifies connecting any number of IJTAG-compliant IP blocks into an integrated, hierarchical network, allowing access to them from a single point. IJTAG saves engineering time and potentially can reduce test time and tester memory requirements. Read more
