Boundary Scan Hardware Market

Global Market Study on Boundary Scan Hardware: Demand Majorly Underpinned by Flourishing Prospects of Smart Electronic Devices


Boundary scan testing is an extension of scan path testing that was developed for digital logic. The advantage of boundary scan hardware is the overall reduction in the number of input-output pins of the chip. Boundary scan is also known as JTAG (Joint Test Action Group), which is used to test cluster of logics, memory, and interconnections, while selectively overriding the functionality of each block of the logic circuit.

In January 2017, ASSET InterTech collaborated with Circuit Check, Inc., a provider of testing, automation, and interfacing solutions for electronics and electro-mechanical devices. This collaboration is aimed at integrating ASSET’s Scan Works boundary scan hardware tools with CCI’s functional test systems. This helps in maximizing equipment re-use and costs of each new test.

Increasing complexities in multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), input-output buses, chip to chip interconnects, and integrated ICs are creating the need for embedded instrumentation technologies. High demand for embedded instrumentation in smart electronic devices is increasing the growth of the boundary scan hardware market.
