Section 4 - Your use of JTAG at System level...


q4-1.png

4.1 - How would you describe your usage of JTAG at a system level?

  1. I have never used JTAG at the system level
  2. I have used JTAG at system level in the past
  3. I am considering using JTAG at system level in the future
  4. I expect to use JTAG at system level in the future
  5. I occasionally use JTAG at system level
  6. I use JTAG at system level but do not expect to continue doing so
  7. I regularly use JTAG at system level and expect to continue doing so
  8. I do not use JTAG myself, but instruct or advise others

A broad spectrum of responses here: Probably the most important and encouraging take away point here is that none of the participants is expressing an intention to abandon using JTAG at system level. With almost half already being more or less regular users, we can predict an increasing uptake of the application areas that SJTAG is attempting to address.

4.2 - If you currently use System level JTAG, how complex are the systems that employ SJTAG?

  1. Highly complex systems
  2. Moderately complex systems
  3. Moderately simple systems
  4. Very simple systems
  5. All complexities
  6. Not used

Although the measure of a system's complexity is perhaps a rather subjective one, this still provides some useful insights: It is not really unexpected for complex systems to employ system level JTAG, and quite reasonable for mid-complexity systems to do so, the group did not really expect such a large response indicating use in comparatively simple systems. Obviously, simple systems are unlikley to be able to afford any significant investment in terms of supporting hardware and software, so it is interesting to compare this with the results we get in Section 8.

4.3 - Do you think an SJTAG standard will provide some benefit, either to your own work, to your organisation or to your customers?

  1. I believe it is/will be highly beneficial to me or my organisation or my customers
  2. I believe it has/will have some benefit to me or my organisation or my customers
  3. I am unsure if there are any benefits to me or my organisation or my customers
  4. I doubt if there is any benefit to me or my organisation or my customers

The overwhelming majority of respondents are confident that SJTAG brings some benefit to their business. While a small percentage are uncertain over potential benefits, which is understandable if there has been no particular experience, we are reassured that no-one actively believes that there is little or no benefit from the application of SJTAG.
