HIL Fundamentals Using VeriStand Course

In the HIL Fundamentals Using VeriStand Course, you will learn how to use the out-of-the-box features of VeriStand to develop real-time testing applications. This course introduces real-time testing and walks you through building a VeriStand test system that includes real-time simulation, hardware I/O, and alarming. You also learn to create sophisticated real-time stimulus profiles to stimulate a unit under test and log its responses to a variety of real-world conditions.
