How Do I Use InstrumentStudio™ to Configure and Debug Automated Tests?

InstrumentStudio can export configuration files to programming environments or directly to TestStand to help you minimize coding and perform parametric sweeps. You can also monitor your instruments while tests are running and take control of them interactively for debugging.

See What You Can Do With InstrumentStudio

InstrumentStudio helps minimize code development and guarantee measurement correlation by exporting a configuration file to a single API import function or TestStand parametric sweep. InstrumentStudio automatically runs in monitor mode while code is running, so you can see both your instantaneous data and settings on the soft front panel. You can also use debug control mode to interactively debug in tandem with your code.

WAYS InstrumentStudio CAN HELP

Export Instrument Configurations to Programming Environments

With InstrumentStudio, you can configure your instrument interactively and then export the configuration file to your development environment. Instead of setting every parameter individually through a programming API, you can call a single import function to guarantee measurement correlation.

Export Instrument Configurations to TestStand Parametric Sweeps

Rather than programming every detail of a parametric sweep, you can export your starting configuration from InstrumentStudio directly to TestStand and configure a sweep loop to minimize coding.

Monitor the State of Your Instruments as Code Is Running

While an automated instrument runs, you can use InstrumentStudio to simultaneously view your data or verify property settings on UI controls that are dynamically queried and updated.

Debug Interactively Alongside Your Test Application

At a breakpoint or idle state in your test code, you can take control of an instrument session to debug and modify settings in InstrumentStudio, all while the original instrument session is still open. Then you can continue execution with any of the parameter modifications you made.
