All ATML hardware items including UUT require an identification field, basically so they can be uniquely identified. Note: we also see a reference to this information in the Test Description TPS. The key (required) element in any identification is the c:Identification/c:ModelName. This has to be defined, and once a ModelNumber is created it should be the same for any ATML file references that same entity, in our case "ATML Demo UUT".

The c:Description is a generic description of the item, in our case we're describing the purpose of the XML file, rather than the actual UUT e.g. "UUT Description for ATML Interoperability Demo UUT1 2010". Although this makes sense for the ATML demonstration, in general the description would be expected to describe the actual UUT to the user e.g. "A Low frequency op-amp with programmable gain which can be controlled through a parallel digital interface or RS232 bus".

The c:IdentificationNumbers represents an example of what might be typically expected. An identification may have many identification numbers either from the designer or manufacture. In the example identification number represents the ATML project 'user' part number for the Demo UUT. Note: There is no specification of any specific manufacturer identification numbers in the example.

The c:Manufactures element allows us to identify known manufactures of this UUT. In our case we have two possible manufactures. Had we had specific or known c:/IdentificationNumbers/c:ManufacturerIdentificationNumbers (which we did not), then the corresponding manufacturerName should match name in the c:Manufacturers list.
