Call a real-time sequence file from within a stimulus profile to define a specific task
to execute on a unit under test (UUT).
Before you begin, create a stimulus profile
Open the stimulus profile from which you want to call the
sequence in the Stimulus Profile
In the Steps palette, expand
Select Real-Time Sequence Call and
drag it to the stimulus profile code.
In the Property Browser, enter a
File Path where the real-time
sequence (.nivsseq) file is located.
Use the Parameters section of the
Property Browser to map the sequence input parameters to
stimulus profile you are using is saved in the same
directory as a real-time sequence,you can drag the
real-time sequence file from the
Sequences palette directly
to the stimulus profile code to create a Real-Time
Sequence Call step that calls that sequence.
If you make any changes to a real-time sequence
called by a Real-Time Sequence Call step, select the step, and in the
, click Update
. This will refresh the parameter mappings for
the sequence call based on the current contents of the specified sequence.
This ensures that parameter mappings exist for all parameters, that the data
types of all parameter mappings match the data types in the corresponding
sequence, and any parameter mappings that have no corresponding entry in the
sequence are deleted.
VeriStand also supports CSV files as real-time
sequences. The process for calling real-time sequences defined in
CSV files is the same as the process for calling
.nivsseq files. However, you cannot view
the real-time sequence defined by a CSV file in the
Stimulus Profile Editor. If you want to
make edits to the real-time sequence, you must use a text
