Anyone use Jtag Tools for testing Flash Memory?
I looked online and didn't find much information but was looking for past experiences using the tool.
Anyone have any stories about installation or use?
I do understand I have to have the current version of Cygwin which I do already have.

Jtag is usually used as hardware interface used in hardware testing. Together with another technology called 'boundary scan' it can be used to drive the pins on your board for testing purposes. Flash memory can be tested this way if your board was designed to do so (the appropriate connections where made between the ICs).
Not sure where Cygwin play into this.
In the commercial applications I have seen, driving JTag for boundary scan testing usually done with dedicated hardware (from companies like Asset or Xjtag) for speed reasons.
I guess it is possible to hook-up JTag port to general purpose IO and run everything by bit-banging software but it may be too slow on some occasions.

Thanks a lot for the info. I can definitely continue working with the hardware and software developers but will continue to do more research.
