Allows Parallel communications with Handler (drivers may be necessary). Includes RIFL 2 to RIFL 3 cable (RI Part # GGFEH22B) but NOT Parallel (D-Sub) cable (supplied by customer).
Serial or Parallel generally have the most reliable and fastest interface to handlers versus GPIB and therefore recommended by RI over GPIB interface.
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.
