What is NI TestStand?

NI TestStand is a ready-to-run test management software that is designed to help you develop automated test and validation systems faster. You can use NI TestStand to develop, execute, and deploy test system software. In addition, you can develop test sequences that integrate code modules written in any test programming language. Sequences also specify execution flow, reporting, database logging, and connectivity to other enterprise systems. Finally, you can deploy test systems to production with easy-to-use operator interfaces.

Develop Test Systems Faster With NI TestStand

Automate Code Module Execution

With the Sequence Editor, seen on the left, you can create test sequences that automate the execution of code modules written in any programming language. Each code module executes a test on the device under test and returns measurement information to NI TestStand. You can log test result information in a report or database automatically. In addition, systems written in NI TestStand can integrate with source code control, requirements management, and data management systems.

Deploy Test Systems Easier With NI TestStand

Create Installers to Simplify System Deployment

After development is complete, you can use the NI TestStand Deployment Utility to create a distribution or installer of code modules, test sequences, and related files to deploy automated test systems to production.

In addition, NI TestStand helps deployment by providing simple operator interfaces that can execute the test system and reduce operator error. You can also create custom operator interfaces, like the one seen on the left, in a number of different programming languages to meet a variety of application requirements.

Increase Test Throughput With NI TestStand

Perform Parallel Testing And Minimize Equipment Costs

NI TestStand has built-in options to test multiple devices in parallel and also to run multiple tests on the same device simultaneously, allowing you to greatly increase test throughput while minimizing the cost of additional test equipment.

The NI TestStand execution engine is highly optimized to obtain the best possible test times.
