About This Item
The scope of this document is the development of a common receiver/fixture interface (RFI) specification that is based upon available commercial standards integrated under a common a??opena?? architecture. This mechanical/electrical interface is intended to serve government/commercial interest for applications in test, system integration, manufacturing, monitoring, and other functional requirements that demand large contact densities and quick-disconnect mechanical operation. A joint technical forum has been operational since 1997 under the auspices of the IEEE Std 1505 RFI Working Group and a recently formed industry/government Common Test Interface (CTI) Working Group. Readers of this document are encouraged to comment on details unclear, contradictory, or undefined to the IEEE 1505 RFI Working Group or the IEEE Standards Association for review and change. These organizations can be contacted at the locations described in the preface of this document. As IEEE Std 1505 evolves, additional revisions may be required and reballoted by the IEEE Standards Association. The RFI Working Group serves to encourage vendors to produce same product class types that are intermatable and interchangeable by adhering to performance specifications of this standard. The document has been developed in accordance with Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Standards Assocation Policies and Procedures per the IEEE SA Standards Board Bylaws [B23],1 the IEEE SA Standards Board Operations Manual [B24], the IEEE SA Standards Companion [B25], and the IEEE Standards Style Manual [B26]. Additional guidance and reference was utilized from The Authoritative Dictionary of IEEE Standard Terms [B15] and SI 10¿¿¿ American National Standard for Use of the International System of Units (SI): The Modern Metric System [B35].
The purpose of this standard is to permit interchangeability of mechanical/electrical receiver/fixture/connector product assemblies from various manufacturers under an a??open architecture.a?? To develop within this framework, a defined set(s) of interconnecting connector and mechanical specifications that supports available, accepted, low-cost commercial technology to reduce dependence on proprietary designs and extends life-cycle availability. Technical requirements identified by government and industry include maximum flexibility, scalability, and range of application.
New IEEE Standard - Superseded. A mechanical and electrical specification for implementing a common interoperable mechanical quick-disconnect interconnect system for use by industry for interfacing large numbers of electrical signals (digital, analog, RF, power, etc.) is provided. These large interface panels (receiver and fixture panels) are employed primarily in test systems between stimulus/measurement assets and a related unit-under-test (UUT), although any application involving high-density contacts requiring a quick disconnect interface could benefit. The receiver is a receptacle that is mounted to test system mates with multiple fixtures, which serve as the buffer between the UUT and automatic test equipment (ATE). Fixtures translate standard input/output (I/O) signal routing offered at the receiver to a wiring interface that directly connects to the UUT. These UUT interfaces can represent cable connectors, direct plug-in (printed circuit board edge connectors), sensor monitoring, or manual feedback from the test technician. The primary objectives of this standard are: (a) to establish interface standards that permit interchangeability of mechanical/electrical receiver/fixture/connector product assemblies from various manufacturers under an open architecture; and (b) to develop within this framework a defined set(s) of interconnecting connector and mechanical specifications that supports available, accepted, low-cost commercial technology to reduced dependence on proprietary designs and extend life-cycle availability.
