CAMBRIDGE, UK -- XJTAG will conduct a series of workshops on introductory and advanced JTAG techniques next month. The events will take place March 11-12 during The National Electronics Week exhibition at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The hands-on introductory workshop provides a comprehensive overview to JTAG boundary scan and the IEEE 1149.x standard. The one-day sessions will take place on 19 and 21 May in Midrand, and are of particular interest to engineers in design, development, test and production.

Boundary scan is a cost-effective, non-intrusive method to testing higher density assembled circuit boards.  Workshop leaders will also cover how to test non-JTAG devices using boundary scan.

An advanced workshop will be held May 23 to provide a more in-depth look at JTAG and its additional capabilities, including an exploration of XJTAG’s novel programming language.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
