    I would like to know if it i better to run tests on ATE load board when socket is connected directly to the board or via receptacle? does it matter?
    is there any advantage or dis advantage to the receptacle on the load board?


    Hi erany,

    If you need to solder the socket to the loadboard, you should use receptacle, in order to be able to easily change the socket when needed (e.g.: maintenance).
    Furthermore, most of the times, the loadboard is too thick for the sockets, so you will need to use a long leads receptacle.

    If the socket you are using is pogo pins socket, that mounts on the loadboard with screws, you don’t need to use receptacle.
