Enable pin- and site awareness to see channels grouped by site and identified by pin name
in your InstrumentStudio panel. Pin maps map physical modules, channels, and
ports to sites and pins connected to a DUT. Using pin- and site-aware views in
InstrumentStudio preserves mappings created in TestStand Semiconductor Module (TSM) pin
When you launch InstrumentStudio
within TSM, InstrumentStudio automatically enables pin- and site-aware view using the
pin map configured in TSM. To manually enable this view within InstrumentStudio,
complete the following steps:
Go to Pin and site mapping section.
Select the Enable pin- and site-aware view
Open the Pin map file dialog box to select a pin map
After enabling pin- and site-aware view in InstrumentStudio,
devices in your panel appear as pins grouped by sites, system pins, and unmapped
channels. Use the site filter in the document toolbar to only display pins from a
- You must select All sites in the site filter to view
unmapped channels. Site filtering does not apply to RF signal generators
because each device channel can be mapped to multiple pins on multiple
sites. You must select sites and pins in the RF signal generator panel
- Creating a panel using auto-layout mode will add devices in the pin map.
Devices not included in the pin map can still be added to your panel.
