JTAG Technologies has just announced the release of a complete new edition of its PCB Test Developer software, known as JTAG ProVision 2020.

The new release can be seen and discussed on the JTAG stand at PCB Live on 12th March.

Working from customer feedback and utilising the expertise of its design team, JTAG says it has, “Further simplified the processes for testing modern PCB assemblies fitted with miniature components in highly integrated packages”.

The updated software “Includes many novel features to create a faster, more versatile system to help address the needs of test and design engineers through the next decade and beyond”.

JTAG ProVision 2020 is an all-encompassing PCB test and device programming development tool aimed at hardware, test and production professionals in both the OEM and CEM sectors. It uses CAD data from design tools, and device models form its embedded library to automatically create a range of test programs for hardware.

JTAG states that ProVision also includes wide-ranging support for in-system programming of devices such as CPLDs, Flash Memories, Serial PROMs, PM bus parts and embedded memory in Micros. In all there are said to be more than 200 enhancements to ProVision 2020 compared to the previous release. In addition, JTAG also offers ATE board testing machines based around boundary scan and bespoke fixing: the company will be displaying a solution based on a test fixture from ECT (pictured).

This latest version of ProVision, and much more, can be evaluated at PCB Live, the UK’s only dedicated event focusing on PCB design, test and manufacture. It is a one-day opportunity that provides senior engineers with a platform to meet and talk with some of the most experienced PCB-related technologists and application experts in the country.

Entry to PCB Live is free of charge by pre-registration. The event takes place at the acclaimed British Motor Museum on 12th March. The venue is located at Gaydon, adjacent to the Aston Martin and JLR plants south of Warwick and just one minute from the M40.

There is abundant free parking, and for visitors arriving before 1030, a free bacon roll and brew too. Tea and coffee is provided free of charge all day at the event, and pre-registered exhibition visitors can also visit the superb Museum, with almost 300 fascinating cars on show, free of charge too (standard adult entry fee otherwise is £14.50).
