Electronic – Boundary scan developer and testing tools


I have to choose a tool for production testing of fairly dense PCB's with 4+ FPGAs 10+ DSPs, ethernet controllers and PCI controllers.. Does anyone have any experience with any of the tools available from GOEPEL, XJTAG, Jtag-technologies or if anyone know of any good open source alternatives? That is both the BS hardware controller and/or software..

OpenOCD is an open source JTAG debugger, it supports a good range of adapters both open source and proprietary.

It's worth looking into. But, I have only used it for simple boards with single microcontrollers.
