Tester card redesign
The tester card that plugs into the RTM using Lemo 0S patch-panel connectors and is usable for both the FM and RTM tests has a design flaw in it. This flaw is that the patch-panel 0S connectors don't have the right footprint on the PCB and therefore they can not be plugged into the PCB.
Instead, in the first version of these PCBs, the connections will be done "manually" using wires to connect to the holes in the PCB.
Should this pose an issue later on, the card can be redesigned. The correct footprint already exists in the Altium project component library, however the PCB needs updating and redesign to fit these new connectors.
When this redesign is to be done, the Lemo 00 connectors should also be replaced, otherwise they may get in the way of the gaskets of the Lemo 0S connectors, when these are placed on the support board.
To summarize, the following changes should be done if this issue will be considered later:
- update the PCB with the new Lemo 0S connector footprints (you can do
right-click > Update PCB With All in the Altium LibPkg project
- under the PCB Library pane)
- redo the connections around the Lemo 0S
- reposition the Lemo 00 connectors away from the Lemo 0S (see already produced boards for why this needs doing)
