DATP

13 Direct Analog Test Probes (DATP00…DATP12)

  • Input-only

  • Connected directly from PPC to PLT

  • DATP00…DATP06 are hooked up to the built-in DMM of the PLT-300A, for precise measurements at voltages up to 100V.

  • DATP00…DATP06 can be switched to the MUX0 and MUX1 channels for shorting, impedance or voltage measurements

  • DATP00…DATP12 are connected directly to ADCs, allowing differential voltage measurements, and voltage measurements against PLT system ground.

RATP

32 Routed Analog Test Probes (RATP00…RATP31)

  • Input-only

  • Connected from PPC to PLT through an analog multiplexer on the PPC

  • Only one routed analog test probe from a given ADG bank can be routed at the same time.

  • RATP00…RATP15 are part of the “ADG0 Bank”

  • RATP16…RATP31 are part of the “ADG1 Bank”

  • RATPxx pins can be routed to MUX0 and MUX1 channels for shorting, impedance or voltage measurements
