Abstract The Boundary-Scan IEEE1149.1 Std. has become an important design criterion with complex IC's and Board designs within Motorola's Infrastructure products. This paper describe the "Boundary-Scan Chip-Set" that has been developed by Motorola and its component and test solution providers to enable a comprehensive boundary-scan test strategy at all levels of product build, board, system and field. The "Boundary-Scan Chip Set" allows hierarchical and multi-drop Boundary-Scan test architectures to be applied at all levels of product build. The "Boundary-Scan Chip-Set" consists of 3 distinct functions a "Bridge" a "Scan-Controller" and a "BIST-Sequencer". The "Bridge" enables a hierarchical multi-drop IEEE1149.1 Boundary-Scan implementation within a backplane configuration, whilst the "Scan-Controller" provides the necessary processor and memory interface for in-system Boundary-Scan test vectors and commands to be broadcast to slave cards within the backplane configuration. The "BIST-Sequencer" enables locally stored test vectors and commands to be executed and analyzed without on-board processor control. The Scan Chip-Set family of devices is now incorporated into Motorola infrastructure product, enhancing and improving both factory and field testability and diagnostics.
