This unit is one of more than 50 microprocessor-specific Interface Pods for use with the 9000-series or 9100-series mainframe.
It functions as the test interface between a suspect circuit board's microprocessor circuitry and the mainframe.
This unit can run board-resident programs such as initialization and diagnostics.
The Interface Pod uses the board's clock circuit ensuring that all tests are performed at the board's designed speed.
Automatic bus line monitoring eliminates the need for probing and enables detection of both static and dynamic faults.
Input protection circuitry against overvoltage and incorrect pod insertion
Automatic bus line monitoring
Self-contained system with its own microprocessor, RAM, ROM, and I/O memory space
Instrument type: Microprocessor Interface Pod
