For the MCD test systems a precise examination, an optimized testing time and economic resource costs are of top priority. To combine this, a new intelligent resource sharing software has been implemented with the Toolmonitor ResourceManager. This Toolmonitor, which is shared by all test positions, administers the test procedures and gives "permission" in blocks to run test. Time-consuming test sequences e.g. RF Generator, WiFi or on-board programming, in which a parallel processing of the individual position is possible, can be managed by the so- called ResourceManager.
If a certain hardware is occupied it will try also to test in this hardware configuration, or -if possible- work off another block. Thus, the test time is reduced to a minimum without much hardware effort. This handling is independent of the version that being tested, even across PC's.
In combination with measurement software TestManager CE, ResourceManager serves to control the process control system for test systems, through which multiplex devices will be tested simultaneously and asynchronously while using the existing hardware for the respective measurement in a shared manner. In summary, working with ResourceManager provides the following capabilities:
- Locking hardware used in a shared manner
- Optimization of the test process when test blocks will be performed using the hardware available
- Simultaneous, asynchronous testing of mutiple devices under test
- Simultaneous testing of different devices under test (types)
- Sychronization of the test processes
For third-party software, the Toolmonitor can be fully remote controlled. COM/DCOM or .Net-Assembly is used as an interface. This allows the Toolmonitor to be integrated in a large number of applications (Microsoft Visual Studio® (C#, C++, Visual Basic), Microsoft Office® (e.g. Excel®), Open Office®, LabView®, MCD TestManager CE).
