Using Production Line Tool to test hardware after manufacturing

Is it possible to run some test on a newly assembled unit coming out of manufacturing, but not load the OTP with the customer code?

For example: A new board just went through assembly steps at a manufacturing plant. The board is plugged to the PLT. I would like to run tests such:
_ Establish communication with DA14580
_ Trim crystal
_ Test RF output against golden unit

Is this possible? Other than these, what else could I do without flashing OTP?

Thank you,

Hi dlo,

Hi dlo,

 

Yes it is possible to run some tests on a newly assembled unit coming out of manufacturing without loading the OTP with the customer code. You will be able to find some info in the DA1458x/DA1468x Production Line Tool (UM-B-041) document in paragraph 7.2.6 and 7.2.10 about the test settings.

 

Thanks, PM_Dialog
