Integrated Diagnostic Plates for Bed of Nails Testers

      Disclosed is a method of performing system continuity
diagnostics without inserting and removing the shorting plate.

      In the figure, the integrated diagnostic plates 3 are built in
the support fixture 2.  The plates are located under all the test
probes 1.  Depending on the diagnostic test data the plates may or
may not be electrically connected together.

      When the probes make contact with the plates, the normal
diagnostics will be tested.
