OSA-RTS Demonstration Overview
The OSA-RTS ATML UUT Demo shows how it is possible to Start with a Test Description file and follow the process through to collecting Test Results.
Instructions are provided to take the ATML TPS through each stage of the build processes, utilizing the appropriate components of the OSA-RTS and the required COTS Tools.
We might start with a test concept. Maybe developed in eXpress Which we turn into an ATML Test Description using ATML Pad We take the Test Description in ATML Pad and validate the data. Once Validated, Export the XML to the same directory.
We Import the ATML Test Description into TestStand to create the CVI project. Simply opening this in TestStand creates the sequence file and populates the subfolder with new *.c and *.h files The newly generated CVI project can now be allocated using the 1641SignalTranslator. An *.ini file can be used to “automate” as much of the allocation process as possible.
We select the CVI to Parse, along with a Capability Driver Description file, a Test Station Description File and any required TSF Libraries This will open up NewWaveX for processing. We then save the allocated file *(allocated).c.
Once the CVI file has been allocated, we then load the CVI project: We remove the “*.c” file and ensure that the new “*(allocated).c” file is used instead. We then include any necessary paths and libraries and build the CVI project.
This creates the *.dll file which is required to run the sequence file on a Test Station We now have the files we need to run a test sequence on our UUT. We run the sequence file and follow the test procedure instructions.
Once complete an xml results file is created that can be conveniently viewed in a web browser. This gives a run down of the various Tests Passed or Failed, and the various numerical results collected. The Diagnostic Aide can then be used to analyze the results and modify the Test Description.
