Here is the second e-newsletter from the SJTAG Working Group. We hope that this is providing a useful link to the activities of the Working Group, although you will probably find that there is some new material on the SJTAG website almost every week.
If you're a reader of New Electronics, look out for a brief article on SJTAG in the coming weeks!
Any comments on this newsletter can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Poster Session - ITC 2008
This year, we do not have a full paper suitable for ITC in Santa Clara this October, but we are instead presenting an SJTAG Poster Session. Poster Previews are presented during session 19 (starting 2:00pm on Wednesday 29th) with the main poster session running during the Octoberfest Reception later that same day.
SJTAG Discussion Forums
Just a reminder to everyone that the SJTAG website has an on-line discussion forum. Access is available to anyone with an interest in the subject of System-Level Boundary Scan, not just the Working Group members. If all you want to do is just browse through the topics, then that's fine, but you'll need to self-register if you want to add anything to the ongoing debates.
The July/August survey has now pretty much run it's course and has provided some excellent feedback on user perception of the important issues for SJTAG. We have to say that we were delighted by the level of response we got, with more than 45% of the people we contacted taking the time to complete the survey. Another very pleasing outcome was that the vast majority of respondents agreed to take part in our follow-up survey, which we are currently preparing and will circulate a little later in the year.
In the meantime, the original survey will remain open for a few more days.
Unfortunately, the July Newsletter contained an inaccurate link to the SJTAG "Wiki" site: This should have been http://wiki.sjtag.org/. We apologise for any confusion this caused.
