Unlike to TIMs mounted to the Testhead, the RI7725 20 GHz Microwave Source also includes a "Self Test" that occurs at system Startup and can be run from the Diagnostic window from the Run > Seft Test menu. The results appear in the Cassini main system window or choose System > Message to see the results in the Messges window. Once a Self Test is run, choose Text button to open the messages in a Text editor that can be printed or saved as a .txt file.

Due to its legacy in previous Roos Instrument's ATE Systems, the hardware is also referred to as Aux Source, Anritsu Source, 20 GHz Source and Microwave Signal Generator and will be referred to as "source" in the procedure below. The RI7725 is located in the Auxiliary Rack (AUX Rack) and uses an auxiliary rack TIM, also referred to as a Remote TIM, to route resources to the Testhead. Remote TIMs are typically placed closest to the AUX Rack (slots T1, T2, T15, T16).The instrument in this TIM appears as "Source1", "Source2", "Source3" or "RecLo" when used as the Local Oscillator (L.O.) for the system’s Receiver. The RI7725 sources are mounted in the AUX Rack with two sources per shelf, labeled from the lowest location upward as "RecLo", "Source1", "Source2", and "Source3." In a typical configuration, the RF port from each source is routed via semi-rigid interconnect cables on the fixture bottom plate or interface plate to the Source1/2 Combiner and/or Receiver TIMs. The T-Location and the C# port on the Remote TIM RF blocks are typically NOT reported in the Tester Configuration window or Device Connection Editor to allow flexible Remote TIM configurations.
