Fixture Customization Options
 TC-5901B system with a custom fixture F59014A allows automation of most of the test processes. The fixture holds the device, brings it inside the shield box, makes test signal connections and returns the device to the starting position when the test is completed. Once the device is manually loaded on the DUT cradle and the serial number scanned, the rest of the test procedures can be automated. The custom fixture option, F59014A may be ordered by supplying the necessary device information and samples to help design and verify the fixture. Typically, every device has unique shape and electrical connections requiring mechanical and electrical customizations from its basic platform design.
