Overview of NI STS Software
After completing this module, you will be able to describe the different types of software and environments that you can use to develop and deploy test programs for the STS.
Exploring Tester Resources
Find the TSM and Instrument APIs in the programming environment and learn how to use them in code modules.
Developing Test Code for STS
Create a test code module using the basic APIs and code module programming flow.
Running Code Modules as Part of a Test Program
Explore techniques for ensuring the quality of your test code modules, sorting DUTs based on test code results, and using test system information within your code modules.
Developing Multisite Test Programs for STS
Use the batch process model to modify a test program for multisite execution.
Reducing Test Time
Use various tools and techniques to reduce test time and verify timing using both high-level test system benchmarking and low-level test step benchmarking
Deploying Test Programs
Deploy the test program and learn how to debug it after deployment using the complete test program and the TestStand Deployment Utility.
