IEEE Std. P1687.1: Access to IEEE Std. 1687 via UART

Larsson, Erik LU ; Murali, Prathamesh and Kumisbek, Gani (2019) 4th International Test Standards Application Workshop
Abstract
The IEEE Std. P1687.1 is exploring alternatives to IEEE Std. 1149.1 test access port for accessing IEEE Std. 1687 scan networks of instruments. In this paper, we investigate the use of universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) to access IEEE Std. 1687 networks. We have developed a protocol to describe scan-data transported over UART and a hardware component to translate (retarget) information between UART and IEEE Std. 1687. The objective is to minimize the amount of information transported over UART and the silicon area of the hardware component while maintaining the flexibility to access an arbitrary combination of instrument in the IEEE Std. 1687 network. We have developed software for the protocol translation, implemented the... (More)
