Use the Relays section on the Pin Map tab to specify the relays on the site and the relays on the tester that the test program associates with the pin map file references. You can right-click any item in the section you want to edit and use the context menu to complete common tasks.

Choose one of the following options to add a relay to the pin map file:

  • Click <Add Relays Here> to display the Relays pane, and click the button of the relay type you want to add.
  • Right-click <Add Relays Here> and select the relay type you want to add from the context menu.

The Pin Map Editor automatically adds the relay to the Relays section. Select a relay in the Relays section to display the Relays pane, where you can edit the relay's name, open state display label, and closed state display label.

Relay 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 relays, or add comments in the Relays pane. Use the Comment button to specify a comment for the selected relay. Comments display beneath the relay they modify.

DPE supports the following relay types:

  • Site relay — Specifies a site relay, which is a relay on the tester or DIB that is connected to a relay driver module and that is associated with one or more sites. A site relay can have one connection per site or can have one connection per group of sites.
  • System relay — Specifies a system relay, which is a relay on the tester or DIB that is connected to a relay driver module and that is associated with all sites.
