Handler Interface "pod" is used to control a supported handler. This connects from the RIFL interface to a Parallel (D-SUB) port on the handler via a customer supplied cable.

This interface type is the fastest (in reaction time) and preferred method for connecting to a Handler or Prober. The custom cable can be easily completed by adding resistors or bridging the correct pins. Depending on how the handler is configured, a 10K ohm resistor should be installed between each SOT (Start Of Test) pin and pin 13 (+5V for pull up) or pin 12 (ground for pull down).

Handler POD is configured at the factory based on customer provided Handler/Prober interface documentation.
