ATS Software Standardization
This two-day course provides a “big-picture” view of the software standards used in
Automatic Test Systems (ATS). The course covers legacy, current, and emerging software
standards, all illustrated with representative examples. You will learn how the adoption of
standards benefits hardware and software vendors, system integrators, and ATS end-users,
and how these benefits compare with the additional costs imposed by standardization.
Special attention is given to solutions for transitioning from legacy to modern standards.
Introduction to ATML
This one-day course provides an overview of the ATML family of standards and their
typical applications in Automatic Test Systems (ATS). The individual ATML component
standards are introduced and illustrated through examples. You will learn how the
adoption of ATML standards can help you reduce the cost of ATS and Test Program Set (TPS)
development, operation, and modernization.
This four-day course provides an in-depth look at the various ATML component standards.
You will learn how to produce and use XML documents representing test results, test descriptions,
hardware descriptions (instruments, test stations, fixtures), and test configurations.
You will use Altova® XMLSpy to create
and validate ATML documents and to develop extension XML Schemas.
Several ATML-compliant software products are shown in action, through live demonstrations.
“Introduction to ATML” is a prerequisite for this course. Software development knowledge is useful,
but not required. Training computers are provided. Alternatively, participants can bring
laptop computers with a recent version of
