JTAG is a protocol originally created to test electronic devices (boundary scan). Nowadays it is widely used to configure devices and to debug embedded systems. The FT2232H is commonly used to implement JTAG cables. For this reason a lot of implementations and software are available.
It depends on a lot of factors - board layout for example. As a general rule always try to place the JTAG connector as close as possible to the processor. I have designed OMAP boards with quite long JTAG traces, which had to go through an debug adapter board as well, and the JTAG functioned quite well without any additional resistors. Automation HAT at Raspberry Pi GPIO Pinout Automation HAT is a home monitoring and automation controller for the Raspberry Pi; with relays, analog channels, powered outputs, and buffered inputs. All 24V tolerant. To get the HAT set up and ready to go you can use the one-line product installer: Flameman/dht-walnut/jtag - eLinux.org

JTAGenum is opensource and runs over an Arduino board. It can find the JTAG pinout among a large amount of pins. The drawback is the 5V signal voltage level on most Arduino boards, whereas most routers use a 3.3V signal voltage levels. Therefore a level shift converter is required to wire the original Arduino with the test points at the router. ARM JTAG Interface Specifications - Lauterbach ARM JTAG Interface Specifications 4 ©1989-2020 Lauterbach GmbH Signals This JTAG interface is a superset of IEEE Std 1149.1. TCK, TMS, TDI, TDO, TRST- are the standard JTAG signals. A few more signals are added for advanced debug capabilities. Signal Pin Description Direction (debugger point of view) Compli-ance

JTAG is actually a test point on a circuit board. It is a IEEE standard (IEEE 1149 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary Scan Architecture) that came about as a way to test circuit boards when we Programming microcontrollers: JTAG, SPI, USB oh my Still, the JTAG interface allows for the programming of an AVR which supports it. JTAG is an in-system debugging tool which allows you to manipulate and examine the status of a supported AVR while it is running in a circuit. JTAG allows the user to stop execution at any time, the manipulation of the AVR's internal registers and much more. Buffered JTAG Cable Xilinx Parallel Cable Altera ByteBlaster Xilinx Parallel Cable or Altera ByteBlaster for JTAG 1149.1. Intellitech also provides a low-cost, low-speed solution for applying IEEE 1149.1 tests using the IEEE 1284 parallel port of a personal computer.
