JTAG Boundary-Scan Vs. JTAG Emulation (ICE)

One question that I often hear is: “What’s difference between JTAG Boundary-Scan Test and JTAG Emulation or a JTAG ICE?” First off, these two methods share common functions such as: hardware bring-up, device programming and even some basic hardware test functionality. The big difference is that test systems are designed to do extensive hardware testing of […]
