Specific tests are normally not carried out on connectors, although some rules are taken into account:

  • preferably put the contact points on the connectors in order to identify any track interruptions (between the connector and the components on the UUT);
  • if there is a sufficient number of free channels, also put the test points on the unconnected pins (short-circuits may be identified that do not compromise the operation of the UUT, but which may cause the system to malfunction as a whole);
  • if necessary, check the connector by duplicating the points on an external connector to the UUT, connected to it via cable.
