Creating Real-Time Test Scenarios with Stimulus Profiles and Real-Time Test Sequences

Last Modified: June 10, 2021

Use the VeriStand Stimulus Profile Editor to create specific test scenarios for use in your real-time test applications.

In addition to using the Stimulus Profile Editor environment, you can use the LabVIEW VIs on the Stimulus Profile palette in LabVIEW to execute and control stimulus profile and real-time sequence files programmatically. VeriStand includes examples of using these VIs in the <LabVIEW>\examples\VeriStand\API\Execution API\Sequences directory.
  1. Create a stimulus profileUse stimulus profiles to act as the test executive that defines the stimuli to apply to a unit under test (UUT).
  2. Create a real-time sequenceUse real-time sequences to define specific tasks for a unit under test (UUT).
  3. View test resultsEnable the Stimulus Profile Editor to automatically open stimulus profile test results.
  4. Log-real-time test dataUse stimulus profiles to log real-time test data to the host computer while a test executes on a target.
  5. Use stimulus profile arguments to communicate with the VeriStand EditorSend commands to the VeriStand Editor through a stimulus profile to specify a VeriStand project, a system definition, VeriStand Gateway IP address, or connect to a target from the system definition.

If you want to script your test sequences in Python, you can use the VeriStand Python Integration Package as an alternative to the Stimulus Profile Editor. This open-source package allows you to execute Python scripts as if they were VeriStand real-time sequences. To learn more about this feature, view the VeriStand Python Documentation.
