This article relates to the multiplexing of output signals onto a single test point, thus saving on the number of test points required. A special interface card, called a personality card, is used to interface with the card under test and provide signals back to the test CPU. By multiplexing signals from the card under test to test points on the personality card, the number of test points is reduced.
