Pin and pin group names are case sensitive, must begin with a letter or underscore (_), and are limited to A-Z, a-z, 0-9, or _ characters.

You can also cut, copy, and paste pins, or add comments in the Pins pane. Use the Comment button to specify a comment for the selected pin. Comments display beneath the pin they modify.

DPE supports the following pin connection types:

  • DUT pin — Specifies a DUT pin, which is a pin on a DUT or a resource on the tester or DIB that is associated with one or more sites.
    A DUT pin can be one of the following:
    • A specific pin on the DUT. This type of pin is connected to one instrument channel per site.
    • A resource on the tester or DIB that has instrument connections and is associated with one or more sites. This resource can have one connection per site or can have one connection per group of sites.
  • System pin — Specifies a system-wide pin, which is a resource on the tester or DIB that is connected to an instrument.

    A system pin is a resource on the tester or DIB that is connected to an instrument. A system pin has a single connection and is associated with all sites . You can also use DUT pins for shared resources by specifying the sites that share the resource in the connection. Use a DUT pin instead of a system pin if you need to burst patterns to the pin using the NI-Digital Pattern instrument driver.
