Joint Test Action Group, Samtec Industry Standards Connectors
Joint Test Action Group, also known as JTAG, is the common name for IEEE standard 1149.1. This standard defines a method for testing board-level interconnects, which is also called Boundary Scan. In short, JTAG was created to test for common problems, but lately has become a way of configuring devices. The JTAG hardware interprets information from five different signals: TDI (Test Data In), TDO (Test Data Out), TMS (Test Mode Select), TCK (Test Clock), and TRST (Test Report-optional).
Toby offers both JTAG connector and cable solutions from Samtec

The primary advantage of boundary-scan technology is the ability to observe data at the device inputs and control the data at the outputs independently of the application logic. Simple tests can find manufacturing defects such as unconnected pins, a missing device, an incorrect or rotated device on a circuit board, and even a failed or dead device.
