Abstract

This article describes a unique diagnostic test clip and apparatus for microprocessor products. Programmable interface circuits are now widely used in microprocessor base products. Such chips are typically mounted in a forty pin, so-called, dual in-line package. The diagnostics of these products in a working environment are extremely complex not only because of the closeness of the product but of the close proximity of each of the pins.
