Part 2 in a three-part series on IJTAG
In my previous blog, "IJTAG: It's all about Embedded Instruments", I discussed why the IEEE 1687 IJTAG standard was developed in the first place. The bottom line was that a standard was needed because embedded instrumentation had been experiencing an increasing list of growing pains, which brought the issue of scalability to the fore. In this blog, I’m going to explain from my perspective as vice chairman of the IJTAG working group how the approved standard addresses those growing pains with some really powerful features, which, if you did a fast read of the standard, you might not think twice about. These are some of the ‘can’t-miss’ features of IJTAG.
