The Future of Boundary-Scan

  • Kenneth P. Parker


The Boundary-Scan Standard has been available and accessible for about two years now. No standard will survive if it is not adopted by designers and supported by a variety of tool, component, and support vendors. The 1149.1 Standard is off to a good start as evidenced by a survey given in [Cron92]. This survey lists the following entities who claim support for 1149.1:
  • 28 ASIC Foundries

  • 3 Field Programmable Gate Array vendors

  • 92 merchant ICs from 17 vendors

  • 19 Instrumentation/ATE suppliers

  • 13 Tool vendors (software and hardware)
