When developing, testing, or debugging a semiconductor test program, the test developer might not have access to an actual handler. In such cases, the test developer might need to simulate a handler to verify that the test program behaves correctly.

Use the NI Simulated Handler Driver sequence file TSM installs to simulate handler functions when you do not have access to an actual handler.

Note Note  The NI Simulated Handler launches the Start of Test and the End of Test dialog boxes.

Enabling and Configuring the NI Simulated Handler Driver

Complete the following steps to enable and configure the NI Simulated Handler Driver.

Note Note  The following steps describe the default TSM implementation of the Configure Station Settings dialog box.
  1. (TestStand Sequence Editor) Select Semiconductor Module»Configure Station to launch the default Configure Station Settings dialog box.

    (Operator Interface) Click the Configure Station button.
  2. From the Handler/Prober Mode drop-down menu, select the Use Simulated Handler option to enable the NI Simulated Handler Driver for the test program. TSM uses only one active handler driver sequence file at a time because the lot of DUTs (test lot) can use just one type of handler at a time.
  3. Click the Configure Handler/Prober button to launch the Configure Simulated Handler dialog box.
