SVF - Serial Vector Format File is a file format that was made for purposes of testing programmable logic device designs, or PLD files. This file type features useful instructions that allow for multiple test case scenarios, not limited to logic checking, debugging printed circuit boards, integrated circuits and even embedded systems.
It is also widely known that the SVF - Serial Vector Format File format easily conforms to the JTAG standard of testing, which is something that is also referred to as the Standard Test Access port and Boundary Scan Architecture. These files are always stored in an ASCII format and can be edited quite easily with any standard text editor. The SVF - Serial Vector Format File is usually used by automatic test equipment that attaches to debugging ports contained inside a PLD in order to perform tests.
This file type is one of the most popular formats used for this purpose. It has quickly become the industry standard of most developers hailing from all over the world.
