The costs and long lead times associated with printed circuit board (PCB) scanners are significantly reduced by using a PCB software with the capabilities of scanning, without all the heartache. Altium Designer uses Nexus 5001 that communicates between the host and all devices that are debug-enabled with respect to this protocol. The host is connected to the NanoBoard(s) enabling three distinct chains - NanoBoard, Soft and Hard Devices.
Altium Designer has commands for testing the hard and soft devices JTAG chains directly, both of which are available from the Tools menu when a devices view is active in the main design window. With over 30 years of PCB research and development, Altium offers a world-class PCB environment that takes your idea from concept to manufacturing, all with one software for one single-priced license.
