Pins TCK, TDI, TDO, and TRST on the TNT5002

Aperçu

This article explains the purpose of pins such as TCK, TDI, TDO, and TRST pins on the TNT5002.

Introduction

The TCK (pin 2), TDI (pin 3), TDO (pin 4), and TRST (pin 139) pins are JTAG pins, and are generally used for in-circuit testing, also known as bed of nails or boundary scan testing.

  • TCK: test clock
  • TDI: test data in
  • TDO: test data out
  • TRST: test reset


You would generally perform this testing on your board after it was built to test the TNT5002.

These pins must be wired out of the board in order to do JTAG testing. They can also be routed into a single scan chain.

If you are not doing JTAG testing, the pins are not used in normal operation, and should generally be left unwired.
