Re: PAR scope and direction

"Transformations" still seems to be unexplained. Would it be better if the first enumerated point ended "... and of relevant data and protocol transformations"? (Is that a correct headline summary of what we mean by transformations?) I would be quite happy with additional qualification of "transfor...

Re: PAR scope and direction

Here's my take at revised test for the statement of STAM Scope: This standard addresses use/ reuse of test assets in system context by: 1) defining a representation for behavioral descriptions of pertinent sub-assembly interfaces and of relevant transformations; 2) defining methods for utilizing suc...

Re: PAR Stakeholders

Well, how about something like this, then: Stakeholders comprise the electronics industry at large, including, but not restricted to, designers and maintainers of electronics, particularly test developers, suppliers of test and measurement equipment and suppliers of tools for automation of electroni...

Re: PAR Stakeholders

I'll suggest to make the phrase a grammatically complete sentence. I'll also suggest to get rid of the CAPS since none of the names used here are proper (in the sense of being proper nouns). I'll also inquire as to the intent of the order, if any, as I was unable to discern an intent for the order =...

the Need is really an explanation for the sponsor (TTSC) and IEEE-SA RevCom (Review Committee) to justify why this particular standard is needed.
Agreed.

Re: PAR scope and direction

I believe that ATPG is most often "spelled out" as "Automatic Test Pattern Generation".

Re: PAR scope and direction

Sorry that I haven't found more time to contribute more regularly or more substantially. At any rate, being apart does give one the opportunity to look at the work product with fresh eyes ... As I do so, I am struck that a person coming to these without context might not get much of what it's trying...

Re: PAR scope and direction

Am I missing something? I didn't think anyone had suggested dropping the word "level" (other than the re-phrasing of the end of the last sentence) - I thought it was only "the" that was in question? That's the way I see it, Ian. At any rate, I won't be fussed either way, but now your reprising of t...

Re: Defining SJTAG

Thanks Ian. But doesn't our common practice as regards the use of "component" encompass boards and other such "aggregations" as well as atomic units? From a post you made in " PAR scope and direction " not too long ago: a component part of an assembly (e.g. a board within a sub-system) to be passed ...

Re: PAR scope and direction

To the whole, I think I'm aligned, also, though I do wonder about the use of articles in proximity to "system". Does the following read correctly? Better? This standard describes methods to allow, in conjunction with existing methods, for the coordination and control of a variety of interfaces to de...

Re: PAR scope and direction

"mishmash" says it well to me, too, though maybe its not universally translatable.

While I can see Ian's point, "variety" may be the best since it invokes the idea of multiplicity of type in addition to multiplicity of number ...

Re: Defining SJTAG

With apologies for replying to this without the benefit of reading for the full context of this recent attempt at "Defining SJTAG", here's a thought or few ... While I concur that inherent built-in test capabilities at the lowest level are unlikely to be impacted by "SJTAG", there is the matter of a...

Re: PAR scope and direction

I'd like also to specifically address the matter of diagnostic information as it pertains to " Need A ". Per our discussion and demonstration in the past, one of the needs we have sought to address is that tools used for test development may have access to more structural information than is availab...

Re: PAR scope and direction

This makes sense to me, too, but begs the question as to whether each of these should be articulated distinctly in the Need statement of disparate PARs? Or, even if we consider these as inextricably bound to a single omnibus Need, perhaps they still drive to different Purpose and Scope in disparate ...

Re: Study Group title and Call for Participation

Some degree of ambiguity (perhaps even confusion) at this point is just fine, I suppose?!

I have full confidence in the study group to iron out the wrinkles!!

(which, honestly, is why I'd just as soon stick with "SJTAG" for now)

Alright, then, that's enough from the peanut gallery ...
